Empty Posted July 22, 2008 Report Share Posted July 22, 2008 Here's one for the Victorian/Gaslight/Steampunk crowd ... its an Army & Navy 16-bore howdah pistol Gold Medal Concours d'Elegance of Fine Guns - GMC VI Winning Guns there are a few other shots of it on the net but I can't seem to find them today. 16 bore (gauge) equates to .663 inches (caliber) and just for completeness a round ball from that size barrel would weight 438 grains (slightly over 1 ounce or 28.3 grams) Even loaded with blackpowder it would probably kick like a moose, but gosh, such a pretty piece. Any idea for stats? Mark Quote Abusus non tollit usum "Abuse is no argument against proper use" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
