It was all very positive!  I shot it again in today's match.  I didn't do as well, but know why.  The screws were too loose and need to be treated with Locktite.  Link to pictures and videos.

I found this page:
http://www.aaawt.com/html/mad_ads/jun_15/item/10.html

Pictures of several oddly shaped small pistols. Example:


Some of them are silver plated, engraved, and ornate, but I wouldn't consider most of them to the pretty. They are early cartridge pistols, from a time before the form and aesthetic for cartridge pistols reached a developed state; an "anything goes" aesthetic that produced bumpy bulbous guns.

I have personally always found the early cartridge pistols and their bumpy bulbousness to be fascinating!

Hey all, was wondering if any of you might happen to have a picture handy of a Mannlicher model of 1885 semi-automatic rifle? Being the first semi-automatic rifle, I figured it would be interesting to see what one looked like.

Google image search produced these images:




There must not have been many produced because I can't find an actual photo.

Production must have been limited, perhaps to prototypes.  The Mannlicher M95 is the designation of the straight-pull bolt action which saw use by many countries, starting with Austria.  I see that the semi-auto was model 1885, ten years BEFORE the straight-pull bolt rifle.

Yup. It appears to have been the first semi-automatic rifle in the world. Also, from the few images that I *have* found, it's pretty spage-agey and science-fiction-y. It's really nifty looking.

Forgive me if this has been mentioned before, but how about the Thomas Bland No. 1 six shot pistol...

Features six barrels.  Each time the trigger is pulled the firing pin moves from one chamber to the next, discharging each barrel one at a time. Produced in the late 19th century in England.

The "broomhandle" Mauser C96 gets my vote, no question.  As far as I know (could very well be wrong), it was the first reliable semiautomatic pistol, and was first produced in 1896.  It's also got that menacing clunkiness about it that I just love.  (And steampunk aside, Han Solo carried the "galaxy far, far away" model, so its reliability and awesomeness are beyond question).

My  fave  Cowboy  pistol ever! Destro from  G.I. Joe's  fave  pistol, too.

Germany: Bavarians blast demons out of the sky with guns for Christmas tradition


Those are insane looking guns.

Look at the guys when they fire them. They close their eyes, turn their faces away, and still flinch.

Those are definitely monster hunters' guns.

Ummmmmm. Yes. Definitely Insane.
I Want One.

I shall have to build one,
except in flintlock
and with a bore that will accept a golf ball   ( evil laugh).

I expect they are becoming quite deaf aas well ......

My Dear RJ , I would opine that they were derived from the original Vampire Hunter Carbine! After all , we can clearly see these shooters
pounding STAKES into the muzzles!

1.7" to 1.75" bore should work for a golf ball.

There were almost no attempts to make repeating blunderbusses(i) for a variety of technical and philosophical reasons.  In theory it would be possible and a prop blunderbuss with say a top feed magazine might look cool.

  This just has a flared flash suppressor which happens to resemble one type of blunderbuss muzzle but it might be a place to start from.

A blunderbuss was a muzzle-loader, which can't really be made a repeater. However, I could imagine a something that would use very large shotgun shells, loaded with fine gravel, which would approximate the effect of blunderbuss.
