I was talking with a buddy of mine about making a revovler fully automatic...I know its not legal, I am not asking for plans on how to do it....just curious if its possible.

Think about what you are asking.

You'd have to replace the sear, but it could be done.

This is a joke, right?

What...I have thought about it...I dont understand the inner workings of the revolver and would like to know if its possible. I figured that someone with some gunsmithing expirence could say yes its possible or no its not.

I have no plan to do it....I was just talking to a buddy when we were bored at work, just curious.

OK, never thought about it before but it seems to me you could run a gas system to drive the hammer and make it work.

Probably wouldn't last long with all that rotational mass at high speed.

I do a little CAS and rapid fire, fanning and so on wears out even good revolvers pretty fast.

Can't think of any way to make a recoil operated revolver.

well one could rig up a motor to pull the trigger and per the legal defination it would be a full auto(ie why a gatling gun conected to a motor is considered a MG but without its semi)

so legaly yeah but mechaincaly no it isnt

It is not only possible, ...... they call them Gatling guns.

That was a joke.
