breech that would swing out of the way. I wonder how many were ever built. The only one I have seen was built for the C.S. navy in Ga.
There were a number and we've had previous discussions on this board, which you can still find. with photos of the real things. Usually only one full-scale firing example was built, but a number are still around today. Someone find that discussion, maybe about a year back, and give us a link please.
The one I'm thinking of concerned Kabar's gun in NY, he mentioned it, and a friend of mine found it and took pix. The big one looks exactly like the patent drawing, remember the spear-point-shaped take-up nuts ahead of the trunnions?
