Mayall Revolving Cannon (1860s)

Would you believe … imagine a cannon that was like a giant six chambered revolving pistol and you have the Mayall Revolving Cannon.  This one caught my eye on an online art site – several of which are selling large prints of the patent drawing of the gun – perfect if you are going for a outlandish weaponry vibe in you home …,M1

One has to wonder if the Mayall Gun suffered the same issues as Colt Revolving Rifles early on – think you are firing one, and you get all of them at once.

Here is a link to a short bio of Mayall.

As time permits, the Mayall gun is interesting enough for a closer look!
