There is nothing old about the cva wolf blackpowder muzzle loaders but they arent guns according to the batfe.

Im not talking about converting an m16.

True the reciever was made for a muzzleloader application to begin with. Had the reciever been made for a cartridge and converted to a muzzleloader you are getting to the NFA question. The NFA rules are not logical in any way. For instance the SBR ruling. This was put in by some senator who said Americans did not need shoulder stocks on handguns. In 1934 the country was very antieuro. The senator said Americans did not want this stupid Euro trend. There was no crime issue. Thanks to this you can not stock your vintage P-35 Inglass made for a stock without a cost of $500.

thats what im wondering about. designing a full auto blackpowder gun from the ground up to function as such. designed solely to use loose black powder cap and ball. no metallic cartridges.

the point of this thread i guess is my simple curiosity of just how far you can go theoritically

J. Browning made his first machine gun from a 94 Winchester 30-30. He used a paddle to catch the gas from the muzzle blast. The paddle mounted to a pivot attached to a simple OP rod worked the lever. This was his first machinegun.

Why couldn't you design a multi-barrel muzzle loader like a Gatling system. Use the Browning Paddle system to a OP rod to activate and fire a full auto muzzle loader.

Bear in mind that this would then be an NFA class weapon and illegal.
