A Firearm Of Questionable Provenance





Hmpfff.

Never seen a side hinge gun before. It's an elegant piece to be sure - but of questionable utility to me personally...

  1. Yeah, utility. For one thing it only holds two shots instead of the 8 that you're used to - although just why anyone would need more than a box of 25 to clear a round of skeet is somewhat beyond me.

    I think the model shown here is a French make, although I've never seen it before, the French had the idea that breaking the gun open sideways was somehow beneficial.

  4. Interesting Glen. I had heard of them but never seen one.

  5. Maybe it is meant to be fired ghetto-style.
