Default Idea for a new gun...

I had an idea for a new gun a few days ago, and I really think its possible if someone puts some effort into. It might not be cost effective, or useful, but I think it would be cool.

A self-loading revolver (a semi-auto/revolver hybrid).

Basically my idea is its a revolver on the outside, but you can insert a magazine into the pistol grip. You also load the chambers like normal. So after three shot have been fired, and there are now empty chambers, the gun automatically starts feeding rounds from the magazine (in the pistol grip) into the empty chambers.

You could have a... I don't know, 15 round capacity revoler?

Obviously I'm not an engineer, so I won't be designing this. But if any of you want to go ahead and try, be my guest. I expect 10% royalties on all sales, though.

Get a Webley Fosbery and a Dardick. Put them in a dark room with some soft music and the gentle
perfume of Hoppe's #9. Wait.

The offspring should be all you want. Semi-auto revolver with the ammo in the grip.

How would the empties self eject?

That's old news too. The Austrian Sederl patent of 1879 was for a self
ejecting revolver, Gasser and a few others played around with the
system. Basically the hammer fall hit a lever that pushed out the previously
fired round.

The Dardick took another approach---triangular "tround" ammunition, with
a open outer cylinder. Neat concept W-A-Y before it's time.

Not quite C3. I'm talking about new rounds getting loaded into the chambers, from a magazine contained in the grip.

I like it. So there's a lever of some sort that pushes the old case out, utilizing a rod that comes into the front of the cylinder. The cartridge comes out one of the sides, when you (as the shooter) can see the chamber. This could be the flaw in the whole operation, though. If the case isn't extracted fully the whole operation would get hung up. Therefore, you would need an extraction rod a fair bit longer than the cylinder.

That's an idea too.

JW- Click on the link ABOVE the Webley-Fosberry- THAT link is to the Dardick Automatic Revolver, which DID eject empties.
