I decided to rifle the copper barrel and this is how it came out. I know the ratio is little tight but my system was a little inaccurate.

The magazine is approximately 5 inches wide by 5 inches long and 4 inches tall. It is an integrated magazine that protrudes from the right side of the receiver.

Very steampunk, I like :)

Does it have a magazine or is it single shot?

I have to capability to load 2 in the mag and 1 in the chamber but the magazine spring is pretty stiff and makes this difficult.

Almost a disappointment, but at least no one gets hit in the head with the steel cartridges.

seriously, I can't wait to see this shoot!

Its pretty difficult to fling a 1.5 pound steel weight into the air with pure blowback.

That's why I said "almost". It is pretty difficult and dangerous, but it would be awesome. It is a necessary compromise.
