Well? Thought I'd share, because it looks pretty interesting. The price tag is $50, cash and carry. Looks like a black powder percussion for very large game up close.

Duckfoot pistol. Kinda useless IMHO. NOT a big game anything, more for self defense. I can think of better self defense weapons then this. [like a big rock]

Its a 19th century assault weapon. Eeek

Should you buy it? If it appears to be a quality made pistol and you like it, absolutely. Have you found something that will make you rich beyond your wildest dreams if you buy it now and sell to a collector?

No.


IIRC, it was designed for naval boarding parties and to repel borders.

Three for the price of one? I wonder how it would do with all three barrels charged with buckshot?

Lets test your theory:

You stand in front of it and I pull the trigger...

OK, and I'll be carrying my M14. Or AR, or Garand, or my .454 casull, or 870 or my 1911 ad nausium.

Could this count as a machine gun since it fires more than one round per trigger pull?

I think it's protected as being a "Curio or Relic" or something to that affect.

Still won't matter if you're standing in front of it when someone pulls the trigger.

First prototype of the Glock 18?

It's that spray-fire gun from Contra.

I don't think so, because it's not a cartridge firearm.

It's a muzzle loader, not many regulations of them. You can even ship them through the mail and no one needs to be a FFL type.
Maybe take it to a three gun match, as long as the first three targets are in the right spot you can set a record time!

No, it doesn't fall under the definition of "firearm" since it doesn't use fixed ammunition and cannot be easily converted to use fixed ammunition.

Looks like a kit one. they used to go for like $20 to $25. off $10 if you are interested
