Tryon superposed loads pistol

Manufactured by one Tryon in Philadelphia c.1810′s.
.46 caliber 5 shots loaded front to back, flintlock muzzleloader.

A very early sort-of-repeating pistol from the United States, capable with enough luck of shooting five times in a row as fast as you can prime it. To use this weapon, its user would load it like normal, and then four time over, with careful attention so that each powder charge lines up with a touch hole. Starting with the front shot, the gun is half-cocked, primed, cocked and then fired. Afterward, the user lifted the next dust cover thingy, which simultaneously reveals the touch hole and allows the full flintlock mechanism to slide back in line with the second shot. Then priming happens again.
