for about $600, stainless steel, 3" barrel, about 24 ozs,, .44, 5 shot. I am looking at market response, before I go to the manufacturer's with my prototype. A pair of them, in skilled hands, can get 20 hits per second, on a man's chest at 10 ft. That is, with such a cap and ball revolver in each hand.

With today's machinery/tolerances, a spare cylinder will be available, and the revolver will group 6" at 25 yds, or better, for all 5 shots, using any cylinder, and better than 4" with the one sent with the gun. The cylinder swap takes about 10 seconds. I haven't really practiced it all that much and I can make that time frame, usually.

It will stand up to smokeless powder pressures, and nothing says you can't use such, unless you are an ex felon, at least. So real power can be had with this gun. The primers won't come off of the nipples when fired, either. We now have non-corrosive BP primers, which WILL reliably ignite smokeless powders, guys. The primers and bulletss can be sealed against moisture, making the first 5 shots as reliable as any cartridge revolver.

Durability will be at least as good as a Rossi or a Charter Arms, or such a company won't be making my design, I promise you! At that price, guys deserve a fine revolver and will get it.

That's damn good shooting! Faster rate of fire than any GPMG on the market, and that is with a belt fed weapon!

Love to see a video!

Why go with old primers? Why not use the more reliable 209 shotgun primer? Or go with electric ignition?

because at least half the potential market aint allowed to have any modern primer, and there's no room in revolvers for shotgun primers. you don't understand 3 things, 2 guns are being fired at the same time, and the first shot is not part of the 'timed event. So each cycle is taking .25 second, which is nothning special. the 3rd thing is that TWO bullets can be seated in each chamber. :) Yes, I really AM that far ahead of everyone else's thinking, in the gun field. I have many other ideas, soon to be marketed.

So where is the demonstration?

We're all waiting to see it.

You're already marketing it. Have you made one yet?

I'm waiting on seeing how you contain smokeless powder pressures with a revolver cylinder that uses nipples. I haven't seen any nipples that use primers either, only percussion caps. I don't want to be standing behind or beside it when it goes off.

All I know is I got dibbs on making a Mag uplula type loader for that bad boy!! he-he-he, that should be a big seller!
I beleive that Thompson Center makes a nipple that was designed to use a shotgun primer, seems it was more weather resistant and hotter than the regular cap, course now I ain't a black powder guy but think i saw one.

There are a lot of muzzleloading rifles that use 209 primers but I haven't seen a revolver that did. I know some guys that just couldn't be satisfied with Black Powder or Pryodex so they started using smokeless as a primer for the percussion caps and 209's then started using blends of smokeless powder along with Black and Pryo. It didn't take long before one had a nipple let go on his inline. He is one of the luckiest men I know but he now had a nice long scar just behind his right eye.

So by your statement that half the prospective market can't have any modern primer, I am guessing you plan to sell them to felons? 20 hits in one second is about the rate of fire of an MG 42, typo? Also compressed loads of smokeless powders can develope explosive pressures capable of detonating any gun light enough to hold in your hand unless there is some way to control the amount they are compressed consistently.
