The Pre-2nd Amendment File


Recommended Posts

Since anti-gunners love to say "The founding fathers meant 'muskets' when they said 'arms and had no idea about repeating firearms," this is the place to put all the pre-1792 repeating firearms/weapons.

Use this for your resource.  Post on facebook or whatever else you post onto.

16 to 1 advantage makes a difference.

Yeah it does.  I've handled the Italian replicas of the old iron and brass Henry.

Slide the magazine follower up to the muzzle end to full compression, twist about 90° (IIRC), then drop the rounds in until the magazine is full.  Twist the end back over and the follower snaps in behind that last round.

An enterprising soldier with a tube could have reloaded that magazine uber fast.

The Girandoni air rifle, equipped by the Austrian army in 1790, this 22-shot .46 caliber bad boy would blast through a 1" pine board at 100 yards.
