"Not so well since the Griffons started enchanting THEIR bullets to punch through OUR enchantments. Guess we had this coming when we were so smug about having that spell and acting like it was perf-" [Is cut off by headshot]
"Not very well - the Griffons had caught on our tricks. They sprayed the whole area with magic-disrupting Nth-metal chaff using mortars five-minutes ago..." [Falls over with a few bullet holes in the chest]
Such a badass pic! Definitely going on my list of "pictures I will look at over and over for the rest of my life" Pictures like these make a huge grin on my face. Cassandra (Cassie) will make a worthy ally on the battlefield.
Awesome picture, but that gun can't work. The cylinder gap between the revolver cylinder and the barrel leaves room for hot gasses from the powder to escape, this will either seriously burn her arm that holds the fore end or blow it right off depending on the charge she is using.
Easily fixable by adding a cylinder guard to prevent that.
Yes, there WERE repeating rifles that used the design in the past. They were all terrible. That's why we don't make them anymore with the exception of the circuit judge that has a built in feature to protect against this problem.
If they were of sound design we would still use them as they would almost never jam or fail to funtion. But apparently picking lead shrapnel out of your wrist was enough to cause buyers to choose a different style off repeating rifle. Namely the lever action.
Perfect example: colt 1855
Revolvers with buttstocks do not count as both hands are still held behind the cylinder gap.
The real problem with the design is that it can leak powder, which can be set off by firing the weapon, resulting in ALL the shots firing at once. Notice where here left claw is? There you go, it's RIGHT SMACK BANG in the path of all those rounds!
True, this was another large problem along with the lead shavings that wrong with the design. If I recall the quick fix was generals forced their men to clean the heck out of the thing. Which was pointless because in a sustained firefight it would re-cake itself with powder.
The difference between your reason and mine was your problem is a malfunction that could be avoided if the user (albeit stupidly) cleaned the gun after each shot. My problem occurs when the gun is functioning as designed. However, both are excellent reasons to not use this style of rifle!
A cylinder guard is a small piece of metal that is placed on the opposite side of the cylinder on each side that servers as a shield to prevent the hot gas and tiny bits of shaved lead that escape when the weapon is fired from tearing apart your arm that would hold the fore end.
The lack of this is why the revolver style rifle failed to become popular.
Rossi's recently Circuit Judge has one to protect its users.
I have not, but did go to amorer school for the navy. But the problem with this design flaw is well known and why we don't have revolving rifles. Just youtube what happens when you hold a carrot next the S&W 500 cylinder.
However, if you look at the Circuit judge manufactured by rossi, a gun I actually own, you will see they created this design with a small plate that protects you from the gases.
i seen thos there very geart i wish that can make one with a 38spl/357 meg cylinder for is.
i love revolvers becasue they never jumed up, puls if the cylinder don't turn gusse what i can only replace one or two parts of the gun to fix it i mostly like single acton revolvers becasue you don't have to replace anything at all just clean you gun and you be fun, sure i love the 1911 but like i say wean it jamed on you wean you really need it will i hope you make good with your gods
I also love guns wean i was 6 right now 19 becasue i see guns as a tool for who ever use it. I just wish gun laws in CA are not fucked up, i mean just a few weeks back they ban open curry guns now and a to get a ak now is a pain.
True, revolvers falling out of time is not at all common, and I like them for them for the same reason that they are realiable. However, if your take time a practice with your auto-loader malfunctions(hang-fire, misfire, stove-pipe, and what not) you'll be fine.
LOL, you think CA has it bad...I was born in raised in Chicago! But now I'm in the navy and sit behind the M2HB .50 cal machine gun!
eeehh now i feel sorry for you, but ya CA is a wild sate can't make up it's made at all.
btw i wish people could see its not the gun that call people is moslty the ammo, if you want people to back off but not get tham call theres a thing call rubber bullte and for shotguns beanbag shots.
Also i love guns that are easy to use but can go thorw hell and make it out alive and working i Love aks for that. a along side the bolt action rilfe.
btw i just wish people get over the taboo about guns, beivle it or not in the wild west days there are very lttlie to no muders if you loook at today and give the some # you se it gone up so high that it's not a joke anymore
