That would be the "broom-handle" Mauser's less-well-known sibling, the "broom-head" Mauser.

Do you have any idea what ten matching broomhandles would be worth today?  (Yes, an arm & a leg!)

This reminds me of something I've seen. I walked into an antique shop on Michigan Ave. in a dodgy area of Detroit (a good description of most of Detroit, actually). The shop was well fortified for nighttime lockdown because they had a small selection of militaria including some antique guns, and the piece that really caught the eye was a mounted gun with three high-caliber barrels that was being cleaned. I was told that this was a Spanish gun, originally mounted on the deck of a Spanish ship, and captured by American marines.

My most conservative guess would be $600. apiece in pretty much any condition but I would not be surprised to see it sell for 5-10 times that at auction.

The Apache pistol; pepperbox pistol, knuckle duster, and dagger in one. It does none of them particularly well, but it looks cool.

Agreed, I'd be reticent to use it as a knuckleduster unless it was empty, I can foresee accidentally cocking the hammer with the base of the palm and inadvertantly shooting one's thumb off.
But, yes, they always look impressive.

I would not mind having an Apache in my collection but not what I would want to carry.



This is a good video showing how to load brass shotgun shells which look very good in SP belts.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI47bl2h0cU

For me it is the Winchester 1887 Lever Action Shotgun.  Here are a couple pictures of mine.  I'm going to "Steampunk" it up by user Cerakoting on several of the parts.  I'll post pictures when finished.

Greetings My Good Netizens -
Being so enamoured with the oddball Revolving Carbines, such as my latest acquistion the Remington Revolving Carbine

I was intrigued  to find another today - the Model of 1893 H. Pieper Revolving Carbine in 8 mm Nagant. The nine-shot carbine has the added feature of the  Nagant revolver in that the cylinder moves forward to effect a gas seal!

http://milpas.cc/rifles/ZFiles/Revolving%20Longguns/H.%20Pieper%20Revolving%20Carbine/H.%20Pieper%20Revolving%20Carbine.html

The original Nagant revolver was designed in 1886, and the finalized design of the M1895 was accepted by the Tzar as the official Russian Sidearm.

As I proceeded down this rabbithole of obscure carbines imagine my delight to discover this Page of All Knowledge
regarding revolving longarms:
http://milpas.cc/rifles/ZFiles/Revolving%20Longguns/Revolving%20Longguns.html

It seems there have been a plethora of these things through the years...

I just found this one:



Pistol katar from India, probably from the early 19th century. It would be cool to update it to have revolvers instead of flintlocks.

I am not sure how well this round works but at least is it looks good in brass and copper.

Better pictures.  Consider these the "Before" pictures as I am going to Steampunk this one out!

Described on http://thehomegunsmith.com/firearm-archive.shtml as a zip gun. Possibly illegally produced. Reminiscent of the French Apache pistol.

Rolan - pictures not working


Maets,

Pictures should be working now.  Photobucket.com had some "maintenance" issues.

The gun is now at the Gunsmith's for Cerakoting.  Should be at least a couple more weeks.

I am having a leather cover for the butt with a gauge on one side, and a carving of Cthulhu on the other.

Thanks.  they were very reasonable.  Purchased on eBay.  I don't think that they would stay on under fire, so I'll only attach them to the side of the receiver when it is on display.

I must admit, I'm like a kid waiting for Santa to arrive.  Should be at least two more weeks before the gun is back from the Gun Smith.  I'm a little nervous.

The man making my leather butt cover provided a "rough draft" of my cover.

The long straps will get brass spots and buckles.
