Sorry guys...I should have done a search to see if anyone had posted this before. Turns out they did.

This is a pretty neat tool especially for the late 18th century!! I'm impressed they could get and maintain that kind of pressure, and the magazine tube is a huge innovation.

I knew they had it. American Rifleman did an article on it about 20 or 25 years ago but I didn't remember it being a repeater.
