They Make All Kinds

If you're looking for a time-waster, here's an interesting website.

He reviews obscure and historically interesting firearms. His write-ups include detailed pictures.

The latest post is a .54 caliber 1840s Plains rifle with some beautiful engraving.


Here's a prototype semi-automatic Springfield 1903.



Or an 8 shot repeating rifle from Colt-Patterson circa 1838 .

And so on. A lot of history and a lot of firearms you will never have heard of.

Beautiful work, but I'd be afraid to touch it!

The clockwork self-cocking percussion revolver is awesome:
