6 shot revolving Flintlock pistol
I was wandering YouTube and found this. A 6 shot flintlock pistol with a self revolving and priming cylinder. All you have to do is cock and shoot 6 times..no priming no manual turning of cylinder etc. Whoever came up with this was a genius..

I don't think this would be as dependable as other flintlocks, which weren't perfect for sure. You could have primer leaks, whatever, from things turning sideways and upside down. Looks like it would take some time to reload, so six better be enough! Being brass, it probably wouldn't be very durable, either.
But, all in all, pretty amazing for 1680. Thanks for sharing.
