Not really good for carrying around as a concealed weapon.

I'm more interested in a handgun (possibly 2) and a rifle.
I meant the carbine along with your handgun.. two guns, one caliber. There are take-down marlin levers in handgun calibers as well, The trappers are small. But I know you said you didnt want a lever gun

Medusa Model 47

The Medusa is a very unusual revolver produced by Phillips & Rodgers that have the ability to chamber multiple calibers in the same revolver. The Medusa chambers, fires, and extracts 25 different cartridges in the .38/9mm/.357 ammunition range. The obvious advantage of this is that the person can use the revolver for targeting shooting with a lighter and less expensive caliber and switch to a heavier caliber for self defense.

The reason why the revolver can use multiple calivers is because of its special cylinder. The Medusa six shot cylinder design originally was designed by Jonathan Phillips. He was also a computer specialist for NASA and a competition shooter and he regularly carried multiple guns of different calibers to the range every time he went to shoot. The Medusa was an attempt to solve this because most of the weapons he carried were in the 9 mm /.38 range. This does not include the .357 sig because the round is a .40 caliber cartridge that necks down to .357. To withstand the varying pressures involved in the various rounds, the revolvers cylinder is made with mil spec 4330 modified vanadium steel (the same alloy used in the Gatling gun barrels of F-16 Falcon fighters) and is specially hardened. This cylinder is about twice as stong as any other revolver cylinder on the market. The Medusa uses special rims and springs to hold rimless (automatic pistol) cartridges.

The Medusa Model 47 is patterned after the Smith & Wesson K-Frame pistols. The Medusa's frame constructed from 8620 steel which has been spacially hardened. The match grade barrel is constructed from 4150 chromemoly steel with available barrel lengths of 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 inches. The barrel has 9 rifle grooves instead of the normal 6 to 8 for revolvers. The revolver has a matte blue finish. The grips are rubber. The weapon comes standard with adjustable rear sights and changeable front sights.

hmm....i mean i'm thinking of getting a glock or a beretta with my black hawk. both are 9mm (except the blackhawk has the .357 cylinder). I did want the 2000 with my glock, but i'd rather have a 9mm, .357 & .38sp

its pretty much the same as a ruger blackhawk. Except the ruger blackhawk you can actually find on stores or online at gunbroker.com.

i cant fund the medusa for sale....must be an old gun or rare.

AND IT COST TWICE AS MUCH AS THE BLACKHAWK

Well, it basically is 25 different calibers. If you think about it......pretty much anything you run into within the popular range of cartridges would be good to go with that firearm. Its not old, but it is rare and worth it IMO if you can find one.
