Here's a very nice percussion smoothbore 54 caliber single shot pistol with folding 'snap' bayonet! The pistol itself measuers about 9 3/4 inches long but when the bayonet is extended out the entire piece measures 13 3/8 inches long! The pistol works and looks flawless having no halfcock so when it's cocked it's ready to fire!!! . The bayonet snaps out strongly and snaps securly into place by hand. The barrel has a kind of mottled brown patina on it while there is still a ton of original color on the hammer, triggerguard and folding bayonet. The hardwood grip looks great as well with loats of checkering and metal pin decorations, There are half 'shell' decorations on each side of the grips and a nice 'rope' border design running down the center of the grip. You can tell this piece was used by a right handed person as there is some slight wear on the grip where the owner would have wrapped his or her fingers. The grip is in excellent condition with a nice patina and no chips, cracks or breaks. This is one great antique pistol! There are simple bird engravings on the sideplates but I can find no makers marks on it. I have a feeling it is Belgian but I don't know for sure. Take a look at the pics! $1,450.00

The M15A Fortress gun motor carriage was a WWII era design for an anti-infantry vehicle. Apparently the idea was it could fire in all directions without having to take the time to traverse a turret. I haven't been able to find much else about it, aside from the fact that only one prototype was ever built. Tacticool

Neat find! As an old tanker myself, I can appreciate the difficulties that vehicle would present to the crew inside

I really don't see where the hell you would store much ammo.

Both are questions I had along with how the hell would you avoid all of the recoiling cannons on the inside. A cannon breach hits you and its going to break body parts.

Actually, I think they look cool. A .454 is a big round I suspect, but with a grenade launcher. Even better.
Would this be considered an AK-47 but the media? Lol.

I really hoped I could find out more about this revolver. Seems like a interesting idea. And I would think it would go big time. A guy that worked for H&R came up with it originally. But thats all I could find

Beginning in 1937, the Imperial Japanese Army used the semi-automatic Kawamura Type 97 20×124mm anti-tank rifle. The Type 97 was 120 to150 pounds, had a crew of four and with no muzzle brake had horrendous recoil. It did not have any optics, just open sights so it was used mainly against light armor, from fixed defensive positions, and could fire full-auto 2,083-grain High Explosive Incendiary at 2,500 feet per second (fps) from its 7-round magazine. With the advent of the next generation of armor, both the M39 and Type 97 went the way of the horse cavalry and biplane — still used in combat, but not on the winning side.

I'm running out of pictures. They are getting harder to find. If anybody has some throw them up here.. Thanks

The LeMat revolver was a .42 or .36 caliber cap & ball black powder revolver invented by Dr. Jean Alexandre LeMat of New Orleans, which featured a rather unusual secondary 16 gauge smoothbore barrel capable of firing buckshot, and saw service with the armed forces of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War of 1861–65.

ETA-It was a 9 shot revolver.
