How about this one for when they get up close?
Cary didn't you post this about a year ago? I thought it was pretty cool.
Again a navy boarding gun.
Didn't I post this a year ago? This, meaning what? The thread about the Beckwith or a picture of the duck foot pistol?
I've seen those duck foot pistols and pepper boxes as they are pretty common but in all my years, I've never seen a multi barreled rifle that fired all barrels at the same time. That's why I posted it and it's the first time I posted it.
Since never having even seen a picture of one in my 62 years I'm guessing that the rifles are not that common. That's what led me to believe that the guy that owned the original gun that they modeled the movie gun from knew what his gun was. Still, it's strange that a Google search does not find a picture of an original Beckwith volley gun. Here's a couple more pics that I found of the movie gun.
By the way, you can see the rod, so it is a muzzle loader. So how the one guy fired the gun and fired a second volley three seconds later still remains a mystery.
