The Pistola Con Caricato Revolver
A break-action weapon, the Pistola con Caricato features three barrels, complimented by a very high capacity 18-shot cylinder, which is reloaded via two-piece moon clip-type loading devices. They sandwich the 18 rounds between a holding plate and a firing access plate, through which the firing pins strike the cartridges.
The weapon has five operational settings, and the selector allows the shooter to choose which firing pin and barrel would be used to fire the gun. It also has the option to fire from all three barrels at once with one pull of the trigger. It also features a mechanical safety that prevents the hammer from hitting any of the firing pins.
Is it Good Enough to Use? Plenty of people hate on the .25 ACP, claiming its anemic power makes it worthless as a self-defense cartridge. To that, I simply say, I've never met anyone who's volunteered to stroll downrange and catch one, let alone 18 of them. Read the rest of wheel gun.
I would want to own it just for the uniqueness value.
(?) Well... If you got a good lathe and a drill press, some time on your hands, why not... :)
Sledge Hammer should have had one of those.

Why not post it here? You didn’t write it and FR donors provided you this space for free.
Thanks for the Post.
PING of Oddness ?!
This could be effective if a bad guy is staring down the barrels of that pistol. Either he’ll be intimidated by all the barrels (and convinced that it might somehow work) or confused as hell by all the barrels (”what the hell is that?”). Either way, he is probably at least momentarily paralyzed into inaction.
***Plenty of people hate on the .25 ACP, ***
I had a backstop made of steel, and at 30 feet shot a .25 ACP cal it it. The bullet fragmented and a piece bounced back hitting me in the neck. Thankfully no serious damage but a bruise and a blister, but I realized then the .25 has far more power than people think it does.
But, is it legal in Cali, NY, Mass, and Ct? Magazine limits you know...
now that’s a real hogleg...
I want one in 44 Magnum. And an IV Pole to mount it on with double wrist/elbow braces to help buffer the recoil.
I wonder how well the Rollowalker would hold up with one mounted to the top center crossbar ?
