Edit: Sheesh... open the pictures to look please.


:-D picture with some dot trame always do that with smaller resizing. Thanks for the time you took to scan them. Very nice gun... though being minded in making a 1 shoot per chamber fill, as powerful as possible, my current preference would be something that looks like... that:

or that (I own this one, a cast white metal made in Spain like the great majority of those collectible models):

Yeah, I know, I know... pretty ambitious... :-D
First propotype will be a "classic" copper tubing assembly from Home Depot anyway!

JSR, those guns are beautiful, just pretty expensive.


They are... but not if you think in price per hour paying someone to do them for you. Then I guess they are cheap.

If all you want is a single shot affair, a 1/2" calibre co-axial in a 1" chamber should do nicely, you could imitate the hammer mechanism to strike a schrader valve as a pilot.

If all you want is a single shot affair,


2-shooter in fact... as a first project it will be plenty. I will try first to use the quick-connect solution that offers full power and compactness for my big .56 ammo. I wish to keep the shape of the gun as authentic as possible. That's part of my fun. With a co-axial, the barrel would be quite oversize for a handgun. Unless I make a Blunderbuss...hmmm... ;-)

After that I'll return to my 6-shooter idea, where I intend to make separate cartridges the Brocock way, as already discussed. This will certainly be .25 or .375 ammo.

But very first step will be a 1-shooter prototype with copper tubing, I have about everything to make it now. Just need to find the time :-D

This could work assuming you manage an airtight seal at the detent, then you could just couple the release collar directly to a trigger et voila. Throw in a coyple more 0.56 balls and you have yourself a machine pistol ;)

That's the big unknown... I will need to have the machine shop operational again to adjust that on the lathe. Not for tomorrow unfortunately :-(

I am already thinking about a very simple trigger mechanism to release one cocked hammer or both (at the same time) with a single trigger press, compatible with those quick-connect fittings. You only need a 1/8" lateral translation of the external collar to release the ball on my bigger 3/8" quick-connect. That make things easy, again for compactness.

and you have yourself a machine pistol


I've looked at your BBMG experiments with great interest... something for the future :-D

Hey! That's mine!!!

:-D

Seriously I would love to see you build one... would set a standard after I've seen what you've done with your "Old Shatterhand" (many times).

And each time I cannot thing of anything but "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"... right out from a book of Jules Verne... really beautiful...

You've seen the rest of the pistols collection, right?

They have really nice hi-resolution photographs.

Let's just say, I like the way you think!


Coming from an experienced spudder that's a very nice compliment. Thanks. :oops:
I will try to show nice things as soon as life gives me a break!
