    Clone of a non-existant gun...

    Twaits directed us to a French Forum for some naughty photos:

    Nouveauté PIETTA : le Colt 1851 Pepperbox.

    All I see is a cover sheet for a website. Any clue which page contains your treasure?

    I found the page and must say I have no interest whatsoever in the pistol depicted. I'll try to post the link. Nouveauté PIETTA : le Colt 1851 Pepperbox.

    Nope. My computer won't go to the actual page just the table of contents.

    Dang it! Where are the 'naughty' photos Bob Wright alluded to? All I see is a solution to a non-existent problem seeing how pepperboxes were common affordable. Just doesn't look right somehow, especially since you see 'Colt Navy', but the long cylinder throws it off. They should grind the alignment pins off and smooth/round that area a bit to make it look better.

    Click on the string below or paste into your address bar & you can see it. Makes me try to think up a name for it but haven't decided yet -- such as 'Bad Dream', 'Miscarriage', 'Prank', etc. come to mind - beauty being in the eye of the beholder.

    Either of those would be OK. Actually it could be almost believable with a little more work, like birdhead butt & lower that hammer spur - not that it would be an improvement on the 'back in the day' pre-Paterson pepperbox, only cheaper to make using now-available parts.

    OTOH - deja vu -- I'll just show my DIY .22RF pepperbox again ----




    ------------- never pass up a 'show & tell' op --
