Loading chamber and firing pin, as you can see the trigger button close to the bottom is charged.

Here is the discharged firing pin. There does not appear to be a return spring which makes me think. It may have been a single shot weapon, however it may be the pressure in the air storage vessel may have effectively worked as a return spring. Advice gents please.

I think it may have been a single shot. It appears as though it could be a mechanism where you insert the .36 ball, pump/cock/pull something, and fire.

Should be able to pick one up at your local Cabelas or Bass Pro. I wonder where you can find the dart/ball/projectile that this thing was designed to fire?

Hey Davy, was curious, is the barrel steel or brass? It almost looks like it might be brass but I am on my phone and can't see it all that well.
