I don't think I would attempt to shoot it.

Relatively safe? HELL NO! One of the big reasons these never caught on. A jet of hot gas blowing back past the bullet behind would light up the next round- anddanextanddanextanddanextanddanext, etc.

BTW, here is an illustration and discussion about a couple of the Walch revolvers- 10 and 12-shot Walch Navy Model Revolver

Very probable a gap would do it. One way to find out.

I guess you'd have to make dang sure you fired the front load first, very interesting idea never heard of anything like this before.

I'll tell y'all what, if I ever come across some good bar stock I'll take a few measurements, drill a few holes, & let y'all know how well/crappy it does.

I found my old homemade piece, this is a .52 caliber smooth bore that can launch a soft lead ball through a fence post. The grips are long gone. I figure I'd add another touch hole & port fire it a little.
