Didn't see where this was mentioned before, so how about a WWI German Gatling gun?

Quote
The Fokker-Leimberger was an early example of an externally powered machine gun of Imperial German origin that predated the M134 Minigun. It had 12 barrels and could fire at a rate of 7,200 rounds per minute but it suffered from jamming due to the poor quality of German war time production ammunition at the time.[1] The weapon was experimented with during World War I until the armistice.

Perfect for your Zeppelins, if you can do better than the Germans did with cartridge quality control.

A Howdah pistol, perfect for an explorer persona.

If you're packing a cannon like the .455 Webley why would you need the Howdah Gun?  Cheesy

That being said I think your weapon load should about cover every possibility you can with a portable weapon.....may need something heavier for the Krakens though!

For defence of your Airship from Airkracken I present an authentic re-creation of the "Improved" Model of 1885 Gardner "Battery Machine Gun" in 45-70 Gvt.

I just found out ast night that Smith & Wesson once made a gun very similar to the No. 3 model or Schofield revolvers, only in Double Action, in the calibers .32 and .38. http://www.antiquearmsinc.com/smith-wesson-38-da-pocket-original-box.htm

How pretty is THAT??

S&W also made a lot of safety hammerless ones like that too.  There were a lot of knock-off manufacturers producing extremely similar guns.  I carry a Hopkins & Allen .38 S&W for side matches.  Antique single actions are such a rage right now for cowboy action shooting that these double actions are pretty cheap.  Many old gunshops seem to have them starting at about $60.00.

I love top break revolvers.. such a sexy design, especially with the extractors that just throw out the spent cases on opening.. I can't believe they went out of fashion.. and I'm not buying into the explanation that they're too weak. I am pretty confident that with modern materials the hinge and locking mechanism could be made strong enough to handle modern cartridges without shaking to bits..

I'd posted this before, ages ago, and someone insisted on moving it to the "For Sale" fora.

There is one piece that still puzzles me. It resembles an oversized Lancaster pistol (although shape and mass of the barrel assembly may indicate earlier origins), unwieldy but interestingly outlandish and even elegant in its own crude way. Does anyone knows this weapon or at least can tell if it is a real firearm or a prop?

That looks like a real prototype to me, Wereboar. A great number of impractical multishot weapons were developed in the 19th century, very few of them actually achieving production. In this case, I think the inventor was trying to make a weapon that was flatter than a revolver, to fit better under clothes, and fired more shots. It looks ridiculously hard to aim, and the recoil would be variable and off center, but it is flat and does have 10 barrels. It seems a nicely made piece, possibly the inventor commissioned a gunsmith to make it or was a trained gunsmith himself.

I'm going to toss in the Maxim 1lb autocanon, a Victorian era machine-gun of explodey doom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QF_1_pounder_pom-pom

Essentially someone in the 1890s struck on the idea of making the standard maxim a little bigger, and have it fire 1lb 37mm explosive shells. This obviously wasn't enough, so they applied the 'make it bigger!' principle made a 2lb version for real shootyness.

They even mounted a few of them on top of and in the gondolas of some airships!

In the States we would refer to that as a "Harmonica gun"... they were either vertical- or horizontal-slide multibarrel; they were trendy, if I recall correctly, from about 1880 through roughly 1900 for cartridge guns; some examples of percussion or even flintlock are also extant.

Some examples:










For a pepperbox style pistol, with much steamy potential, I give you the Russian SPP-1 Spetsnaz underwater dart gun.



It fires these long and bizarre cartridges; it was not lethal at great range, but could be used above water as well.  I was advisor to a production company that took my suggestion to use this as the perfect weapon for an ex-Spetsnaz Russian Mafia leader, slightly psychotic.  It was his signature to put a couple of darts into the head of a victim after extracting information from him.






Cheers!

Chas.

     Almost any early machine gun counts, even the Maxim gun was water-cooled and covered with brass.

     I however, would like to suggest the Mexican Mondragon rifle, the first production semi-automatic rifle, and the German Bergmann MP18, the first production submachine gun. Or for some much earlier weapons, try the Nock Volley Gun (Seven barrels and they all fire at the same time!) or the Afghan jezail musket. In between, there's all those early revolver designs experimented with before Sam Colt finally got it right, and the wonderful but flawed Colt M1855 Revolving Rifle.

Nothing wrong with a Khyber Pass Kopy.  Aye, not as accurate OR safe, but GOD are the arabized rifles pretty!



There's a nice arab musket buttstock for your viewing pleasure!

No.

It is not a copy.

It's one that's been whittled down, but I assure you, it's an authentic Lee Metford Mk I*.
