What could be cooler than a 6-barreled flintlock musket?
xIan from Forgotten Weapons shows off this intriguing Nock 6-Barrel Flintlock Musket.
A British gunsmith named Henry Nock was well known for his musket building. This 6-barrel flintlock musket is one of his very remarkable creations.
This self-priming flintlock musket is manually rotated, allowing for six shots to be fired before reloading. This would allow the shooter to be many times faster in firing than a common single shot musket. Now, that was the “assault musket” of the day, for certain.
