Thank you, Charlie. 
Very interesting gun. I would love to shoot it. 
I watched the video hoping he would mention the weight of it. He said he guessed it would weigh about the same as a Nock Volley Gun. I did a search but couldn’t find much regarding the weight of a volley gun except for one that was a 42” .32 caliber volley gun that weighed 12 pounds. 
 

If I could afford to own something like this I would definitely want to fire it, but I would never want to damage a beautiful piece of history so I wouldn’t. Still, it is fascinating.

Wow! 468 grains of fine BP in the initial recommended load! No wonder they cut it darn near in half. Dislocated shoulders indeed! That’s 66 grains of powder in each barrel pushing a .32 caliber bullet. Wow!

 

And I thought a 7 lb .300 Winchester Magnum really kicked! :D
 

I would still like to pull the trigger on one. With the reduced load of course. ;)
