What are the differences between .327, .38LC, .357, .41, .44 Magnum/Special/Russian, .44-40, and .45 in terms of availability, ballistics, and economics.


697e44  No.600520

>>600505

327, 38 LC, 41 Magnum, 44 Russian are relatively rare and ammunition is expensive and hard to come by, brass too. 38 Special is by far the most common and ammunition is cheap, so is brass. 44 Magnum is common but still expensive, very hot to shoot but has the advantages of great power. 45 Colt is very common and cheap, still a popular cowboy gun that never lost its presence. 44-40 is less common but the hardcore love of cowboy shooters keeps it around, especially more cowboyish stuff.

Ballistically 327 Magnums offer high velocity and flatter shooting in a light recoiling round, but small bullets and light weights make them less than ideal performers in revolvers, but perhaps a snazzy small game gun in a rifle like the 32-20 did in the past. 38 LC is even weaker than 38 Special, more like a 38 S&W, enough to puncture a man with a revolver round but not much. 357 Magnum is of course a legendary revolver man killer, not a good choice for handgun hunting; in a rifle its power typically doubles and it is a capable murder machine and an acceptable choice for deer at short range. 41 Magnum is damn close to 44 Magnum in performance, but is so close in size (.410 to .429) that it almost makes no sense to own this rarer cartridge. Hunters liked the smaller bullet at similar weights to 44 Magnum for better BC and thus flatter shooting, police thought that a mild 41 Magnum could be the bridge between 44 and 357, but it never caught on. Its a decent cartridge at least.

44 Magnum is too powerful for a combat revolver at full power, but perfect at medium loads, flat shooting, hard hitting. In the rifle its magnificent. 44 Special is typically close to 45 ACP in terms of weight/velocity/power, although proper loads can exceed it and reach near 45 Colt. 44 Special was a long living and well performing police cartridge. Plenty of power and bullet size and weight to kill very well. 44 Russian has even less power, but like the 455 Webley it had enough weight and size to be considered for non expanding bullet self defense.

44-40 is stronger than 44 Special, nothing to brag about. Suffers from loads using lighter for cartridge bullets. It has superior case capacity than the 44 Magnum even, but its wide bottleneck case leads to thinner chamber walls and lower pressures even in rifles. In the age of 44 magnum rifles there is no reason other than nostalgia to hold onto the 44-40. 45 Colt outperforms the 45 ACP at much lower pressures, can be hot loaded in certain guns, offers a very large and effective bullet that simply works well with big non expanders and expanding bullets. The rifle performance is underwhelming but offers a short range deer rifle.

The final note comes down to the final economics of it all, if you buy factory only 327, 38LC, 41, 44 Russian, are all too expensive for regular shooting. However, an interesting note is that reloading some of the rarer shorter cases for your gun can SAVE you money if you know what you are doing. If you want to shoot light target loads one can get the same performance for less gunpowder with a 32 S&W than a 327 Federal. Same performance with less powder with a 38 SC or LC than a 38 Special or 357 Magnum. 44 Russian offers the ability to throw the same weight bullet at the same low velocity with less gun powder than its two bigger brothers, ect. 45 Scofield offers cost savings over 45 Colt. Also light loads at low pressure means your brass will last dozens of firings, so even expensive less common brass might pay for itself with powder savings.

Many times light loads in large cases like 45 Colt, 44 Magnum lead to large amounts of powder being burnt for low performance. Worse it leads to poor burn dynamics meaning dirtier firing, unburnt powder, massive muzzle blast in low power rounds, general poor performance. For light cowboy fucking around the shorter cases are better and save cash in the long run.

If you cast your own bullets like a manly man there is no difference in final costs for an "exotic" cartridge. 44 Russian can be potentially shot for 4 US cents a shot, even if factory cost is rape. 38 LC can potentially save money over 38 Special if one puts in the effort. Otherwise you are best sticking with the common calibers.

Even factoring in the time I spend doing reloading and casting a 3 grain 38 special/170gr swc load it still factors at around 20 cents a shot in roobux, which is much much better than the $80/100 I get buying factory. Reloading your own is good in autoloaders, but it's absolutely golden in manual action and revolvers with rimmed cartridges since trim length is nowhere near as critical- you can get away with doing dumb shit like I do and never clean or trim your cases, saving a lot of time. My full power loads only cost 31 cents in roobux, and they are the hardest I will ever drive my 357 magnum.

Btw, here is the damage myself and another strelok who posts here did to his fucked iphone with a full house Keith 38/44 load in the first rifle in OP.

Carbon fiber cylinders. It's tougher than steel, and steel liners can prevent abrasion. It would be very light and easy to pop in/out.

You could even make polycarbonate cylinders which are supposed to be disposable, and come preloaded from the factory with steel cased ammo that is cheaper than dirt.

the Magnums are a world apart from the others, far more powerful .357 magnum/.357 Sig is IMO the perfect combat handgun load. 125 grain .357 caliber bullet at 1400+ fps is truly a man/animal stopper while still being fairly easy to shoot.

Keith designed the 44 magnum as basically an experimental load. The .357 was massively successful, and he was basically like, "what if I did the same thing with a big ass bullet?" That's the 44 magnum.

He realized that the 44 magnum was too much gun to ever be reasonably controllable in combat, but he still wanted to see if he could improve on the .357 magnum, so the 41 magnum was born. I really wish I could own one and get into reloading one day, because that's the only way you can shoot it. No one does ammo for the 41 magnum in any realistic sense, the gun world is governed particularly by memes, not rationality.

so yeah, 44 magnum isn't realistically possible as a combat handgun because there's simply too much recoil and blast, if you ever shoot one, you'll know instantly what I mean. However, it isn't really adequate as a rifle round, especially considering the options, so IMO the 44 magnum is a very, very overhyped/overrated round, I actually hate it tbh because it's really just useless. Of course, if you do conceal carry something like a 3 inch 629 and happen to hit someone will a full power 44 magnum load, they are absolutely going to die instantly, no questions asked. So I guess if you have serious anxiety about firepower, CC'ing a 3 inch 629 will certainly put your mind at ease, just get ready for a titantic fireball and ear deafening blast.

I'd go around it in a completely different way, because I'd combine the Mauser 1878 revolver with the Pancor Jackhammer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzSXvhGdfzo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VKGhqIl4Gw

The Mauser revolver's design needs a barrel sleeve for the barrel to move in around, and the operating rod needs a semi-circular extension that wraps around the barrel. Of course, you also move the barrel to the 6 o'clock position. In single-action operation the trigger is exactly the same as in any other revolvers. In double-action you will also have to deal with the weight of the barrel, therefore I suspect the trigger pull would be heavier. But if you also drill gas ports in the barrel, then this will be a semi-automatic weapon any way (or you can make it fully automatic if you are crazy enough). The weapon would be quite modular, as the barrel is not fixed, and you can make cylinders that hold more or less cartridges. The pistol grip doesn't house anything, therefore you could replace that too. E.g. it would be possible to turn a five shot .357 Magnum revolver with a 3" barrel into a six shot .327 Fedeal Magnum revolver carbine with a 12" barrel simply by replacing the barrel, cylinder and grip.

As for loading,I don't think that the Medusa's cylinder is a good solution, but it would be possible to copy that too. I believe in top-break with moonclips. The revolver would look like a modernized Webley-Fosbery, even though it wouldn't have anything common with that. If you doubt the strenght of top-breaking revolvers, let me remind you that the soviet TOZ-81 was chambered for 7.62x39mm. The hinge would have to be placed in frong of the operating rod's extension. A bit of a mechanical problem is that you shouldn't be allowed to open the revolver when the hammer is cocked, because then the barrel would be pushed back into the cylinder by its own spring, and wouldn't aling with the operating rod's extension. I think the solution is a manual safety that has an additional position that an additional position that works as a decocker. You don't want the safe position to be the decocker, because then you can't carry it cocked and safe.


f2d012  No.600815

>>600743

That's not even difficult, the reason catch systems are complicated on the revolvers is BECAUSE they're all obsessed with retaining cylinders.

If you've already decided the cylinder is expendable, it wouldn't be hard to rig up a simple push-through system. Press a lever or pull trigger to unlock, put a fresh cylinder in one end which pushes the old cylinder out, release lever to lock.


662267  No.600821

>>600815

Or you could have a top-break system that ejects the whole cylinder.


4aaa54  No.600850

>>600821

The whole reason top breaks went away in favour of solid frames is because magnum loads beat the fuck out of guns, and you need a solid frame to handle the meaty bang they make. If modern materials can take 42kpsi or even 50kpsi before 50% proofing as elmer keith intended for his .357 and 44 magnums then you will have a winner of a revolver.


662267  No.600858

>>600850

I remembered incorrectly, and the TOZ-81 was chambered for 5.45x39mm. The maximum pressure of that cartridge is 55kpsi, which is 10% more than required. Of course that is a single prototype revolver for cosmoauts, but it was made in the 1980s. I'm sure today we could make something similar.


4cebaa  No.600881

>>600850

Another big reason is that most top breaks with few exceptions were manufactured and designed in, by, and for countries that were early adopters of the gun control pill and now look more like caliphates with every passing week as a result.

The USA liked swing-out cyilnders and England liked top breaks and one of those two still makes revolvers and the other mostly just chokes on mohammad's cock for a living.

Anon, trounds take more space than usual rounds, they are basically shells with 3 additional extensions, but there is still round cylindrical space inside, where the charge and bullet are stored, so they are use more space for the same amount of rounds/capacity/etc.

>>600952

What do you want from revolvers exactly? Because if we take away their supposed reliability and ignore the capacity, then the main difference lies in the placement of the chamber, as it also functions as the magazine in revolvers. And they can potentially have lower bore axis if the barrel is at the 6 o'clock position. So let's see what options we have so far:

>autoloader with the magazine in the grip

The cartridge's maximum length is limited by the grip and most people have a hard time gripping it if the cartridge is longer than 7.62 Tokarev. The chamber has to "take away" the cartridge's length from the "working length" of the barrel. And the magazine has to be under the barrel, as such it's hard to make the bore axis low, and impossible to align it with the wrist.

>autoloader with the magazine before the trigger

Now the cartridge can be much longer, but again, the chamber is that much longer too. E.g. if you made a rimless .500 S&W for autoloaders that is 60mm long, then half of a 120mm long barrel would be the chamber. You could give such a pistol a revolver grip, even aling it with the wrist, but that will make it even longer.

>classic revolver with the cylinder forward of the grip

You get more barrel for the same overall length, and you can align it with the wrist if you place it in the 6 o'clock position. You can even have a negative bore axis if you want to.

>revolver with the cylinder over the grip

Now it's basically a semi-bullpup, you get the most barrel for a given length. The negatives are the worse bore axis and higher height.

>Dardick's nightmare

The same as the previous, but with the capacity of a box magazine. At least in theory.

All in all, I think only pocket revolvers and hunting revolvers have a future. The former is because you can make pocket revolvers firing autoloader cartridges that are both smaller and more controllable than even subcompact semi-autos chambered for the same cartridge. And the later works because you can't stuff those long hunting cartridges into the grip of a pistol, and the compactness of a revolver is even more obvious if your other option is to place the magazine forward of the grip.

>>601002

I can even illustrate that.

I doubt that you will ever meet your goals, as you have to address the weaknesses of the revolver that led to its decline.

> I have no idea how to make each sub-cylinder rotate independently of the main cylinder body to align with the barrel at the right time

Just tell a Swiss clockmaker what you want and he will design you the gearsystem without breaking a sweat. You want pic related without the ring gear, and you want to synchronize everything so that all 15 or 18 cartridges align with the barrel over the course of 3 full rotations. Now I take it will require additional gears between the sun and planet gears, so it will have lots of fiddly bits.

And you don't want to make one for every cylinder, so I think instead of a complete new cylinder you want to replace only the guts of the cylinder. Maybe you should just have the 3 rounds in their own cylinders (that has a central shaft connecting to the gear system) as a complete unit. Then you can single load a cylinder of 3 cartridges, or use moonclips or speedloaders. You can see how this is horribly overcomplicated, and how it has nothing to offer over a simple box magazine.

Everything you said sounds like an overcomplicated shitshow. There is little to no market for autorevolvers, especially burst fire ones. I could see a gas-powered revolver selling in the same sort of niche market as the Mateba, but not as a useful gun. You'll never see a police force buy them.

Inserting a new cylinder sounds like a great way to reduce reload speeds on paper until you realize that nobody wants to carry 2 ~1/2lb 8-shot cylinders. Its too heavy. You'd be better off designing a moon clip that holds the rounds parallel so they slot more easily into the cylinder.

If you want to design an exciting new revolver, design a top-break that can handle the hottest .357 you can throw at it for under/around 1200. There's no .357 magnum top-break out there. that i know of

This book exists. It's fine. Mostly you need 2 things: appropriate gear ratios (super easy) and the correct pendulum length (easily made adjustable with 3D printing). Your biggest problem will probably be efficiency loss from bearings, but the clock should still be reasonably accurate.

does anybody think that desktop 3D printers can print sufficiently strong composite plastics to make black powder revolvers? We know there are challenges with modern smokeless powder, but I'd figure the lower stresses of black powder would make it easier to make a design that works.

Like a pepperbox? Meatstorm tried to do that, they wanted to have guns which were disposable. A multi barrel pistol holding 40 rounds, made entirely of plastic and working off a simple electric button trigger and a watch battery. The pistol itself could be made for under $10, and be quite effective while the bullets last.

None of these pictures are correct by the way, they're drawn by "artists".

I might have figured out how to make a CT pistol: take the Steyr ACR's action with the annual gas piston and all, and put it into a "C96-style pistol", with the magazine forward of the trigger guard. The floating chamber would be over the trigger guard, so about the same position where it is on a traditional pistol (that has the magazine in the grip). It needs an ejector that redirects the spent case sideways, but you'd have plenty of space for that over the grip (and under the bolt). The only problem is that you can't put a light or a laser in that area, but I think you could have a laser and array of LEDs around the barrel as a single detachable unit.

Extra autism: scale it up for rimless 12 gauge shotgun shells, load said shells with gyrojets that have a starting propellant charge, and you made a bolter.

Although now that I think about it, you could alternatively put the magazine into the grip, and "push the action backward". So something like the Stealth Pistol from Deus Ex. Although that wouldn't actually make the pistol any smaller or more conceable, and a pistol is already short enough to be manoeuvrable.

Trying not to sperg out too hard here (a lost cause; I'm 84.6% autism by volume) but I feel the need to protest the use of the term "pistol" as though it didn't also describe revolvers. Revolvers are pistols. "Semiauto" or "autoloader" may be appropriate terms for what you're thinking.

Not expecting to sway you; just feeling the need to offer some resistance to this trend, and I needed something to do to keep my mind busy while I wait for the bathroom.

I will try to keep that in mind, but the problem is that revolver doesn't have the word pistol in it, so you can leave out the word(s) that describe the other kind of pistol, and people will still understand what you mean. And some unnecessary information: in Hungarian we also use revolver, but we have forgópisztoly for a more technical term. It literally means "revolving pistol". An automatic would be öntöltő pisztoly, and that means self-loading pistol. As far as I know we don't have a technical term for autorevolver, but I'd use önműködő forgópisztoly, and that would be "self-working revolving pistol". Of course, önműködő revolver is also a possibility if you want to sound a bit less autistic.

It could've been better, we can own .50 BMG and knife laws are as relaxed as it gets, but if you wanna CC a handgun legally there's only one way - bribe for shit called "a reward weapon". Basically reward handguns are direct Constitution violation + we still don't have a dedicated gun law, just the Ministry of Internal Affairs gun regulation mandate which technically isn't legal as well. So things cannot stay like this forever because of illegality, and if any proposed dedicated gun law wouldn't be liberal enough it would piss off not only gun lobby (that grows more and more powerful thanks to the newly created libertarian party) but also all those bureaucrats and politicians with bribe handguns fearing of confiscation.

I tried doing that, anon. Over the summer I designed a pepperbox revolver with 3 interchangeable cylinders. I wanted something like the Cobray Pocket Pal but with more flexibility in ammo and at a lower price point. Thing is pepperbox guns are always going to be significantly heavier than comparable guns. There is a reason why pepperbox guns fell out of favor, the same reason mine was just a summer project to keep myself occupied, never intended for mass production.

If you want true ammunition flexibility you'll need a single lower frame that can accept different upper frame assemblies. Unitize the barrel and cylinder and have it fire from the bottom position so you don't have to worry about variances in the cylinder size.

Anyone think a Ruger sp101 is good or should I save more shekles for a 1911 likely a used Springfield 1911 loaded . I already have a S&W 686+ with a 6 inch barrel and a reloading set I want to use even more than I do but I want something that's small and slimmer yet still has a grip that's fills the hand better than most J-frames.


87d845  No.609114

>>608908

My nigga, I have a 686+ 6" and an SP101 (2.25" 357 mag DAO.)

The 686 is probably my favorite handgun of all time, so it pains me to say this, but in my opinion the little SP101 handles hot 357 loads (like Buffalo Bore's 180 gr Outdoorsman) better. The recoil is more like a straight-back punch than the flip you get with the 686.

It's a great little gun for close-range work, and she'll do okay out to 25 yards with some practice. Sights are surprisingly usable.

A lot of people don't like the stock grip, but I don't mind it. They'll switch it out with a Hogue before they've even put an effort into training themselves with it. It's small but surprisingly hand-filling. Honestly, I'd get a trigger job way before I changed the grip.

tl;dr It's a great little gun once you get used to it.

Well it's still much smaller than the 686, so it still has more perceived recoil, I just prefer the characteristics of its recoil and find it more controllable.

It feels every bit as solid as the Smith though. I babied her with .38 specials for a while before I worked up the confidence to hit her with .357s, but once I did I went straight to the hot loads because she just kept choochin' along like it was her job.


697e44  No.609143

The only 357 Magnums that can't handle normal high pressure in spec SAAMI loads are the K frame Smith & Wessons that S&W didn't even want to build but were pressured into making. The frame cracks lead to the L frame which is the 586 and 686 357 Magnums, still medium but built to take the full power magnums. The Sp101 is touted as being tough, but I don't think there are any problems with the other magnum medium frames like aforementioned 586/686 or the Colt's.

I don't recommend anyone go past SAAMI pressure loads. But if you like to run em hot and safe and you are still worried about it, or you run according to the book like me and don't want to worry about max loads that might get a little warmer than usual, than you sound like the kind of guy who would go full out N frame S&W like my 27, or an old 28, or these new fangled 8 shot 27 variants, or with a Ruger Blackhawk. Then you have absolute peace of mind that your frame will handle anything, 6 shot N frame will handle high pressure loads as well. As long as you don't get stupid and blow them up with retardation they will last more than a lifetime or two of max loads.

Just don't buy into the Ruger fanboiisms that their guns are indestructable, lots of people tried to prove they could not be destroyed and failed horribly. The smartest reloader is dumber than the book.


87d845  No.609307

Dude's looking for something smaller than an L-frame but beefier than a J-frame. Pretty much leaves him with K-frames and the SP101.

I agree, I don't believe Rugers are any tougher than their competition. The SP101 is exactly as tough as it needs to be to not only survive a steady diet of maxed-out SAAMI-spec loads, but to FEEL as solid as the larger L-frame while doing it.

Funnily enough, my 686 needs some Loctite on the ejector rod to keep it from walking out and locking up the cylinder when firing hot loads. This was a common problem in older Smiths that was fixed by switching the direction of the thread, but it still happens from time-to-time for some reason.

Ball and cap revolvers, when they first came out, were vulnerable to water. That's why they needed holsters all the time. to keep rain out. Putting a rifle in a holster would have been more difficult.

And by the time we invented water resistant cartridges, the cartridge concept came with better ways to autoload a rifle.

Also gas seal has always bothered people, on stronger calibers putting your hand in the wrong place can mangle a finger. And by the time gas seal revolvers took off (Nagant) there were better ways to autoload.

tl;dr march of technology left the concept in the dust

Tbh if you stick your hands anywhere near the cylinder as you shoot you deserve what you get. I get black arm from a days shooting of high pressure .357 and little more- a cowboy back then would have worn gloves if he needed it. I do agree that more powerful cartridges in a levergun were more popular because you could just top it up when you needed, as opposed to a fixed cylinder. Have a hue-gun in my favourite caliber, 45-70- because nobody questions if it's enough gun.

You are trying to make revolvers compete in an area where they stand no chance. You should focus on their strenghts if you want to win against other types of weapons. And every time you look at a weapon you should first look at the ammunition it fires, then at the barrel. In this case you have lever guns that fire revolver ammunition, and the average lever gun has quite a long barrel and a magazine perfectly suited to handle rimmed cartridges. So, what does a revolver of the same calibre has that makes it better somehow, and how could you make it even better by imporving that something? I honestly don't know the answer, I just want you to come up with something better than a kinky cylinder that's clearly inferior to a more conventional gun with a rotary magazine.


ea61c6  No.611706

>>611700

There isn't tbh. Semi auto handguns are superior to revolvers in many ways and are not chosen only because both firearms are pretty underpowered and not very effective compared to shotguns or rifles. Recoil operated handguns have simpler mechanism, easier disassembly, better sights(interchangeable ones are a standard for handguns), more difficult reloading technique, good or decent triggers and thinner profile, as well as great capacity for even more powerful rounds. before not long ago revolvers had a great advantage over handguns called .357 magnum, while latter had expensive, long and unpopular for the public 10mm, but with the growing popularity of .357sig handguns clear the difference. Blowback operated handguns or gas delayed are just as accurate as revolver though the difference is not really that important because they are handguns.

You are better off with a semi auto in just about any situation, except maybe survival, in which i'd take a single action revolver because it'll live longer and can shoot black powder, but other than that there's not many reasons. You can use one effectively but it does not mean that you would not be more effective with a semiauto. It's mostly autism at that point.

To make it even worse, the 9mm Mauser export was developed in 1907, and it makes the .357 Magnum look like a joke. Of course, only the C96 and a few submachine guns chambered it, but now we have the technology to make it shine. It's even better than the .357 SIG, because it's based on the 7.65 Borchardt, therefore it's just as slim as 9mm Parabellum.

>You are better off with a semi auto in just about any situation, except maybe survival, in which i'd take a single action revolver because it'll live longer and can shoot black powder, but other than that there's not many reasons.

One very niche one I can think of is if you intend to fire from inside a pocket/handbag or from under a blanket. In those scenarios it's very easy for the slide to get stuck on some cloth after the first shot and jam. But in 99% of cases you're correct.

>fire from inside a pocket/handbag or from under a blanket

There is a very significant problem of the distance between barrel and a cylinder through which the gasses escape and might damage the pocket, hand, body or your cock, though tilting cylinder revolver that seal the chamber like the nagant were indeed used this way pretty often along with a suppressor. Nagant was quieter than semiautos as well.

Now you are getting it. Revolvers can compete if you concentrate on their potential compactness and modularity. But you should go full out on these aspects and ignore the capacity. E.g. 7.92x57mm Mauser has a base diameter of 11.94mm, while .500S&W has a base diameter of 13.4mm In other words you could make a revolver rifle with cylinder that holds 5 rounds of either. It would be just an overly long cylinder for the .500S&W. If you had a quick-change barrel, then you could offer a rifle that can fire either of these cartridges, or whole hosts of related cartridges. A Mauser rifle couldn't do that. But you also have to make this whole deal attractive somehow.

>>611823

>Revolvers have no minimum or maximum cartridge OAL

That's not true, they do have a maximum OAL. You can just load shorter cartridges because they are rimmed (or have a moonclip that acts as the rim). But you could make a bolt action rifle that fires revolver ammo of varying length just the same (as long as you only used rimmed ammunition). The good old Lee-Enfield showed us that you can make a very good bolt-action rifle with a detachable 10-round double-stack magazine that can be loaded with chargers, even if you use rimmed ammunition. Or there is the Mannlicher M.95 with a rotary magazine that fires 6.5x53mmR. But at this point I'm just being pedantic, and you are correct as long as we are comparing automatic pistols to revolvers.

They also have a minimum OAL, because you can't load an infinitely thin cartridge into it. Even more, the shortest one you could design would be a plate (the rim) with a volcanic projectile glued to it. But I will lay down the autism for now.

.460 rowland.

>Revolvers have no minimum or maximum cartridge OAL

Yes, but this limitation can be overcome on the design stage .357magnum = .357sig, .44magnum = .460 rowland. Handguns allow using wider or bottlenecked cartridges instead.

>you can stick specials in magnums

Yes, that's an advantage. Though it's only important for training or a larping as a police officer getting killed because .38 spl managed to not be good enough vs an autoloading nigger using. Also training is better with the same recoiling round as your main one.

>A rifle is much harder to keep out of the way whilst you need two hands, your pistol/revolver does not require either

Yes, sidearms are better at being sidearms. Not much of a point for revolvers.

>Certain revolver loads (454 casull) can actually trash intermediate rifle loads at the ranges handguns are designed for

If you hit it and kill it, you do not need to explode it. You can also carry a rifle pistol and have a shit ton more firepower. Chamber it in 50 beowulf or 458 socom and you've got yourself an even bigger hand cannon.

DMR does not need full auto capability. If revolver can be more accurate than a semi-auto battle rifle it could work, though i doubt that need to align the chamber and the barrel would grant the exceptional accuracy. You'd also have to make it single action(either only or capable) because of the trigger which is a lot more important in a DMR than in a pistol. Also, there is a problem with bottlenecked cartridges which are used in any long range rifle, can you design revolver rifle that accepts them without tilting the cylinder?

Well, i'd agree if today's service rifles were capable of doing what a DMR does - extending the range of the squad. Accurizing won't do because they are limited first and foremost not by the rifle but by the cartridge it uses, so to escape the limitation you'd have to use a different one, which is why battle rifles are often used as DMRs. Sure, full auto won't hurt but it won't be effective unless we've got a good intermediate cartridge so that you only would have to accurize the standard rifle to get range extention. You could get away with issuing m16 instead of m4s as DMRs but their effective range would extend by only about 100m.

So, to sum up, today you're looking at a rifle that fires full power cartridge like a battle rifle, it should be faster than a bolt action to be used in a squad but cheaper than an accurized semi-auto and just as accurate so that it has advantages over just a battle rifle with a scope. There's only a thin space for it to fit between sniper rifles(bolt action is cheap and accurate) and battle rifles(cheap and shooty), so that it's still cheap but more shooty than a bolt action and more accurate than a standard(not expensive accurized) battle rifle.

>gap between 5.56 and 12.7

This comparison seems a bit out of place to me though. .50 is more of a specialized cartridge, while the main ones we have are 9mm for pistols, 556 as intermediate one and .308 as full sized one. I'd prefer it differently but that's what we've got right now. For a rifle to be USED as a DMR, not CALLED it should use a .308 so you've got to design yours around that. because 556 is bad for a DMR and revolvers serve no purpose here.

>a revolving sniper rifle would be a valid choice

I'm actually not sure. Bolt action is very accurate while revolver has moving cylinder that can be improperly aligned and accurizing is costly and so is a no-go. I don't actually know how would such a rifle compare to just an average battle rifle like m14, not talking about FAL or G3.

If it is indeed more accurate than a semi auto for the same cost or is cheaper and can be accurized for the difference in cost to be more accurate then you can just call it a "an accurate DMR". If it uses different ammo it's already a no-go because logistics.

6 o'clock only helps mitigate the recoil, it does not improve accuracy of the weapon, only the shooter. It's more important for pistols than rifles due to shouldering, longer profile sights and stuff.

>Isn't a DMR an inherently accurized weapon to begin with?

DMR is a purpose of a weapon, not a comparison to another one. You can use a battle rifle like G3 both as a DMR, a service rifle and even a sniper one or SAW(?). Accurizing is increasing accuracy of a weapon so a bolt action rifle can be more accurate than an accurized lever action because bolt action is inherently more accurate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accurizing

Ok, then we still need bottlenecked cartridges to get to the ranges we need or develop something completely different. Today, we've got 45-70 as the biggest cartridge that fits a revolver and it's not that far shooting. You either need to make something like .308 but straight walled or manage to use a .308. I'm no cartridge designer and know about case engineering even less than bullet construction, so i dunno.

I think that going for a unique cartridge for a unique rifle is a road to failure unless it offers huge benefits which is not going to happen. Best thing would be to design a rifle for 7.62x54r, as it's rimmed and similar to .308, i think it could possibly be done. Nagant did use bottlenecked round so it's somehow possible, though you need to do it somehow without using trigger for any additional operations like cocking the hammer or tilting the cylinder. Maybe lock the cylinder against the barrel when cocking the hammer? I thing it would be fine with just single action so the use all these weird things could be powered by the hammer motions, not the trigger so it could be as good as one of a bolt action rifle.

It's not about revolvers, it's about people. Pump action shotgun has quite a bit more recoil than a semi auto one.

That's why you go as a team with other people. You are also screwed against a soldier with an m4 when you have a bolt action and there's only 100m between you, or a battle rifle vs SBR in close quarters.

>accurized service rifle DMR

DMR is by definition the rifle used to extend the squad effective range, i.e. range of a service rifle. Accurized service rifle DMR is a tautology.

>you need some other benefit to justify building and using a revolving rifle

Exactly, and the benefit should be followed by an affordable price, unless you want it to be an expensive gimmick like mateba revolvers. The only thing where it could be good is in being faster than lever actions but this will work only if it is ALSO at least somewhat more accurate than a standard(just a bit more expensive but not by much) battle rifle while having comparable to both cost.

/k/, how much would a nicely designed bolt action sniper rifle would cost in perfect economic conditions with similar resource prices to today's? How much would a G3 cost in similar conditions? I want to know the price limits in perfect environment to know what to compare this weird rifle to, how much it should cost to not be pointless.

>revolving flechette rifle

Flechettes do not really have anything to do with revolving/semiauto because flechette rounds can be used just as easily in a repeating rifle. The only potential that revolving thingies have is in usage of cased telescopic ammo, though this is still a moot point as cylinder is harder to lock than a single chamber.

How? If revolver can fit 12 flechette rounds because they are as thing as a .22 then a box mag can take 40.

>Why would revolvers have a better time with this than other guns?

Cased telescoping shells are pushed out of the front instead of being pulled backwards by the ejector. It's done by moving the chamber down and pushing a new round out of the magazine in it and then returning it in place to fire. That way the spent shells are ejected forward.

>missing case

It's not caseless, dude, it uses a polymer case. Stop spreading this disinfo all over the place, you're making people look bad when you say this shit. And the problem with loading into a revolver cylinder wouldn't have anything to do with a case anyway, it's the fact that cartridges in a cylinder need an external surface to headspace on. In most rounds this is a case head rim, but you can get away with using a rimless round if you ream the cylinder out to fit either a tapered cartridge (such as 9x19 Parabellum, which could headspace on the case wall since it's wider at the back) or a necked cartridge (such as 5.56 NATO, which could obviously headspace on the shoulder).

>Cased

Straight walled, rolled polymer case in place of brass. It is not caseless. It has a case. Only idiots believe it is caseless ammo.

>Telescopic

The bullet is seated flush with the case mouth instead of extended out in front of it. In other words, the case wall telescopes around the bullet.

And a box will always have more volume than the outer layer of a cylinder, even if you manage to put 2 layers of chambers in it like some of the older revolvers did. It's just easier to expand a completely hollow box rather than along the edge of the circle.

>A revolver doesn't have to eject the casing

If you want it to be usable for anything other than a DMR(that if it manages to be more accurate than a semiauto, which is doubtful) you have to refill the cylinder automatically because automatic fire with an 8(being generous) rounds is not even funny.

>A revolver would have better performance with caseless telescoping ammo if anything

Doubtful because heat sinks can be installed onto the chamber as well for the same volume and better effectiveness in managing heat. Wasn't really helpful, as we can see by the lack of usage of caseless ammo.

>Having replaceable cylinders also helps avoid cookoff

The cylinders are very close to each other so only replacing whole cylinder would be of any use. Some rifles or MGs have easily replaceable barrels which are replaced with the chamber.

Cased telescopic ammo might be of use in revolvers because they already have a separate from the barrel chamber by design but the point is moot as i said because it's easier to lock a chamber moving vertically than one going circles and locking on every one of 5 chambers. You already have box fed rifle with multiple chambers inside, no exposed hammers and basically the slightly modified mechanism of ACR at which point it's not really a revolver and there's no point in this autism.

Also, this anon >>611978 was right pointing out that CTA stands for cased telescopic ammo, not caseless, and they are different things but they are cycled/operated quite differently and so it's correct to refer as CTA only to CASED ammo. Caseless ammo does not have such a word thing i don't remember the name of because English is not my 1st language.

>you could just get a revolving sniper rifle instead

Are you drunk or stupid? In no way a revolver could be a sniper rifle because it will be less accurate than a blot action gun that is at least just as cheap, has simpler construction, uses conventional ammo and lasts longer. In long range precision shooting it stands no chance against a bolt action rifle, even a cheap shitty one. It could work only if it offered accuracy higher than a battle rifle because it would then be something like a precision rifle but is faster than a bolt action. If it would be balanced that way and overall score would be at least not much below average it could be used, even if just by hunters. By score i mean average of price, accuracy, shooting speed and maybe capacity.

>I thought of a way to improve the appearance and the balance of this gun

Make the grip straight and make a stock similar to Winchester, i dunno about balance but i think it's easily fixable because the action is pretty light and compact.

What exactly do you want from the gun? By keeping the revolver mechanism you implement disadvantages and limitations that can only be overcome by changing the mechanism like it has been done before. Want a rifle but a revolver as well? Make a bigger Nagant, add a stock and a barrel onto it and you have it. Is it not pure autism? No.

If you are going to design a rifle like that, though your knowledge does look insufficient for that, look at it like a hunting rifle. If it would do what a lever action can, it would probably live. Start with exploring some of the revolver designs, especially ones like Nagant, explore data on competing weapons, their triggers, why are they better, etc. If you come up with a single action rifle that can shoot something like 7.62x54r and has good trigger and accuracy of a standard M14, it'll work. I bet it'd even have some autistic fans. I suggested trying to make the cocking lever do the job that is now done by the trigger so it can be improved up to at least "average". It will make the rifle single action only but it is not that big of an issues for that kind of rifle and is the only option to not make it an autistic abomination that does the job poorly in any situation. That's all i can suggest to you, good luck.

unfortunately, the faith in things does not make change them towards the goal. Accuracy of a rifle is determined by multiple things such as barrel harmonics, the fitting of the parts, consistency of their motion and many others. Properly aligning the cylinder with the barrel is a difficult task in itself, making it to the point of being comparable to a fixed chamber is even harder. There's also the issue of locking bolt, or lack thereof - the cartridge can travel backwards and to the side during firing because of the distance between the back wall and the chamber so the bullet position can be not very consistent which leads to even less accuracy.

>>612069

No reason to. Bolt action is more robust and capable of withstanding the pressures while revolver has a cylinder. Could compare it to barett but i don't really see a point.

>What about putting a cartridge stopper of some kind

I think pushing the barrel backwards against the cylinder and the cylinder against the back wall would do a better jot, though moving barrel is not a very good idea, especially a rifle one. Maybe push the whole mechanism forward so that cylinder is seated between the wall and the barrel?


ea61c6  No.612100

>>612097

Maybe just have a moving back wall will do, yes, without mechanism. Then it pushes onto the cylinder which is aligned with the barrel and the circular notch that extends from the barrel is inserted into the cylinder front like it does in Nagant. It forms a seal to block gasses from escaping and helps aligning the cylinder and the barrel. Then locking the cylinder from the back with some notches on the back side and fitting it so that its wobble is minimal might give some OK accuracy. There's a problem of actually operating all this steampunk abomination but it could be locked by pulling the hammer back and reset only after the trigger is released, not pulled.


ea61c6  No.612103

Now that i think about it, i got too far into autism. The back wall will basically act as a blot and without locking it some way other than holding the trigger it'll just blow away itself and your face after detonation.

G3 is lever delayed blowback, does not lock the bolt and is more accurate than gas operated system in general. It's just i was trying to get the back wall that acts as a bolt moving and held forward only by the trigger.

>cylinder that locks is similarly required to build a revolving precision rifle

It just has to withstand the pressure effectively. Today's .50 cal revolvers can do that and have fixed back wall thing that acts like a bolt so i don't see why it cannot be done.

I think the best way would be fixed cylinder with reloading like in SAA but it's more tightly fitted to the rod it's on and to the back wall to reduce the wobbliness of the round in there. The best way to seal the thing would be a chamber or barrel extension that does not move the actual long and heavy fixed rifle barrel but seals the gasses and aligns the barrel, though latter is lacking because moving chamber extension/shroud thing is not the same as a 1 axis rotating cylinder locking onto a fixed to the frame lug, so alignment should be further improved. Reloading can also be done in a more comfortable way but something like side-opening or break opening cylinder would be devastating for either accuracy or price without some clever design i cannot think of without actually thinking about it.

G3 is not heavier than other guns of it's class. Fal is 9.5.

>The bolt also has a weird system based on its "half-locked" predecessor where instead of being a pure blowback gun, the bolt is partially held in place by friction and not just mechanical leverage and a spring.

That's what you call "delayed blowback", it allows to fire big rounds without making the bolt extremely big.There's roller delayed and lever delayed blowback with latter being simpler but both transferring the motion of the bolt onto another part first, effectively slowing the movement down.

>Would it damage the accuracy too much?

Yes, too many moving parts to just take it out. Even just side/top opening with a fixed cylinder would work better because the cylinder is fixed and causes less wear and moves less. Remember, your cylinder is the chamber and its alignment is crucial to accuracy so you want to keep it in place as tightly as possible and lock it similarly because even the slightest wobble would cause inconsistency at the very beginning of the action and so can lead to extreme loss of accuracy later.

I don't think so, plenty of weight comes from the longer barrel. If you compare it to an AR, of course it'll be heavy but comparing to an AK or HK33 it's really not that much of a difference.

>What's the lightest a precision rifle could reasonably be?

Bull barrel alone required for a "precision rifle" would probably make the rifle as heavy as a usual battle rifle.

>Friction isn't normally a big part of a delayed blowback system.

I didn't say it is so i don't really get why you said that. I just tried to explain it in case you didn't know about that.

>Although that's not a terribly big deal for a precision rifle, fortunately.

Without proper reload even the advantage of faster fire rate/simpler shooting process disappears because of the huge reduction in overall fire rate due to longer reload. Not important for a hunting rifle but still.

>That might be a good thing to look at to make a compact precision rifle, but not if it damages the precision too much.

Shorter barrel might not hurt accuracy if other things like sights and scope are built around it but generally longer barrel is important because it offers higher velocities and so flatter shooting. For long range the velocity is even more important because of increase in drop.

>Because the G3 has it.

Has what? Lack of dependence on friction? I never said anything about friction so i don't see what are you trying to correct.

>I'm going for something that works as a general precision rifle

Better start with a thing that does not blow up, throws lead in the general direction, shoots rifle round and does not gas you in the face and then work from there. If it manages to do that without being an overengineered expensive unreliable waste of tool steel then you could try to add a decent trigger, think of different reloading, modular construction, accurizing it and all other stuff. Even hunting rifle is a bit too high for the project but try to at least get to there is you're serious, even if a hunting rifle does not sound too edgy.

>So could we have the back wall slide back or rotate away instead?

Nah, it acts like the bolt and so making it move would require additional reinforcement to withstand the pressures without wear, bending, stuff like that. It's just better be as extension of the solid frame though i think it will need reinforcements anyway, though not as many as it could need be it moving. I think that barrel extension that is pulled backwards so that the cylinder is moved backwards and pressed against the back wall. That way you can align the cylinder with some notches on the back wall and holes for the notches in the cylinder and it also comes with safety because you can make the firing pin/striker touch the primer only when the cylinder is pressed against the back wall.

>You could have the cylinder lock fix the back wall in place when it's ready to fire because the cylinder is now laterally immobile.

I described the idea of pushing the back wall forward so that it locks the cylinder against the notch extension of the barrel similar to nagant but with the back wall doing pushing instead of the cylinder. I think it's a bad idea because it's moving, it has to lock somehow which introduces unnecessary complexity and it requires moving some part of the mechanism with it or some huge redesign. Bad idea overall.

I think the best way to lock to cylinder would be round notches and holes on it and the back/front(depends on what part is moving). Something similar to how ball detents work but without springs and they should just lock without moving and unlocking. I'd draw that but i only have paint now so soz.

>Gotta aim high.

Gotta get the basics first and expand from there. That way you don't have to dump the project because it got to be unsustainable or haven't given acceptable results.

>It'd be nice to be able to reload without having to move a major component

I think for the prototypes the hinge-from-the-side reloading scheme(SAA) would do the job and then you could either make it swinging out, top breaking or somehow hinging to the side at an angle by disconnecting one end of the rod from the frame, though this is not good because the rod is responsible for the position of the cylinder in all 3 axis.

>a piece that only folds back behind the stationary cylinder's 12 o'clock chamber and lets you reload from there

You're probably using rimmed or necked cartridges so they cannot be taken out of the front. It's easier to just use the reload scheme of the SAA, with lugs bing onlt in 11, 1, 5 and 7 o'clock positions, right between the chambers so that you can use the side space of the back wall for stuff like reloading hinge.

>fix all my problems with revolvers not having autofire: Underslung machine pistols

That's really very, very, autistic.You could just have a sidearm and not make it all one complicated, herd to use, hard to replace and maintain package. There's a reason nobody does this and the only things similar to this are a grenade launcher and a shotgun. First goes well with a service rifle because of explosives on the battlefield and grenades needing throwing and second is used to breech the doors with it, not actually shoot people. You have a job to do, if it's long range shooting then do your job and shoot from range - then you'll be good with a sidearm for emergency, be it a compact SMG or a pistol. If you're going to do fighting close-mid range you'll use a service rifle, maybe with a grenade launcher or something - using intermediate rounds and automatic fire, not some revolving gimmick.

Also, weight =/= accuracy so hauling stuff on your rifle won't do shit, only throw off the balance and slightly reduce recoil.

Your compact revolving rifle will never be as compact as the shittiest bullpup even tavor and revolver bullpup is even worse than just a revolver, a lot worse.

>Why bother with a full auto or burst revolver when the standard full auto isn't so damn restricted in terms of ammo

The only restriction i can think of is black powder. Other than that an adjustable gas block will fix all your problems with ammo. Still, i think that to make revolvers usable you need to go to single action.

>it has real potential to be good at: single shots with a ton of power and accuracy.

Revolvers are not more powerful by design, it's just they have .357 magnum while handguns have been stuck with 9mm for a while but it's just a historical thing and state military retardation, not a pro of the revolvers.

Revolvers are not more accurate, it's just they are compared with recoil operated guns that don't have fixed barrels, most if not all target pistols are either fixed barrel semiauto or break action single shot. For a reason.


ea61c6  No.612376

>>612365

Now that i think of it, it doesn't even have to be good or accurate or something, that's not that important for hunting because it's not done on long ranges that often. it should be comfortable, durable, reliable and, most importantly of all things - C L A S S Y. Yes, that's right, it's the reason for popularity of lever action for hunting - their style and culture. They are not very accurate, not fast to reload, have average at best triggers and cannot accept pointed bullets in their tube mags but they work, are reasonably reliable and comfortable, nicely balanced and are beautiful. So, to get there and not be dreaming but have a design of a working firearm that once can be held in hands without looking like a trenchcoat weeb with a trillby you just have to make it at least good enough for hunting and make it look great, which is not that hard with revolvers.

I think it's possible for revolver rifle to get to the accuracy level of a lever action without extreme investments and keep it cheap and simple while reloading will not be a problem even if it's SAA style(henry lever actions have the stupidest reloading mechanism i've seen, it looks like muzzleloading somewhat), followup shots are not that important but should be comparable to lever action while keeping our rifle single action. Capacity is also similar to lever actions so it passes. I'm concerned with durability but it's an issue with actual design which we don't have.

Also, 7.62x54r is good but we don't need that thing because we're not shooting that far so the best cartridge to choose would be 30-30(because king of rimmed cartridges) or maybe .357 because i love it and the combination of rifle/sidearm in the same round. Go with the former if we're striving for being really on par with lever actions or .357 if we're going to simplify the cylinder construction and engineering and expand onto other cartridges later(which i suggest).

I'd help with designing the mechanism but i'm pretty bad at engineering and shit and have never done my project 3d printer after i bought motors for it. Could probably continue it if we get to later stages of development. It'd really be cool to have such a design, have the plans for it under free license and watch not only some /k/ gunsmiths maybe starting a company and selling them but some chinks finding it out and making it spread all over the world and cause shit.

Of course, especially if we manage to add the feature of barrel/cylinder interchangeability so that you can swap them for different calibers. It wouldn't be that hard, even if a bit bulky for smaller ones, or at least design different models, it would be easier with a working gun in hand.

>Which cartridges are a good option?

I suggested 357 because it's straight walled so the cylinder is simpler to design and manufacture, though 30-30 would be a bit better if you get to production. I'd still go with the former because other calibers could be designed afterwards while complexity can prevent leaving the stage.

>There should be a great deal more interest in ultra-compact SMGs/PDWs.

If you could get .460 rowland to not beat the fuck out of the gun and make it out of better materials I'll hand you the advantage for the autoloader being the better gun for pretty much all power levels barring the .454 casull and the .460 smith and wesson tbh going past 454 is an exercise in retardation anyway.

Well, there are no guns designed for .460 rowland so it's pretty obvious that guns designed around .45 would break faster if you double the pressure bit i pointed it out as more of a proof of concept. There are few people who carry either as well.

Double actions are pretty complicated and difficult to fix though, they are not the bolt action of the sidearms, at least not double actions.

Why has no one attempted to build a gas powered revolver? Just bleed gas into a small tube running underneath the sight rail (downside, this might force a slightly taller profile above the cylinder to fit it) and have it act on a piston that impacts an extra spur on the top of the hammer. Arrange the piston in a manner that allows it to uncover a small pressure bleed port situated right above where the cylinder gap is and you can run everything from the hottest to the softest loads out there as long as the piston mass is tuned to run with with the softest load.

I'm guessing there are issues related to the shock load placed on the clockwork as this would otherwise solve all the known issues with autorevolvers. I assume that jolting the hammer rearward at a high rate of acceleration would be harsh on all the relatively tiny internals found in revolvers. That said, you might be able to eliminate the shock on the system by using a long action piston mounted under the cylinder to put its energy into a clockwork spring. Put a camming surface on the piston and have it work against a plane like an archimedes screw that winds a spring, then release the energy from that spring (which will be softer in terms od acceleration) in a way that operates the whole mechanism.

Bias. Even straight 20rd box mags are a lot better option because of reload speed and cost alone, not saying about weight and capacity.

You don't use double action because of the trigger, you don't use automatic fire because it is literally worse than just doing single shots for the capacity and semi auto is unnecessary complicated and useless for a revolver that can be operated easily manually with one hand due to rifle grip.

Have you ever seen a double action revolver's insides? This design has few pretty simple and nicely isolated and not spring loaded parts, so i see no problem with it, aside from it being in the opposite state from "finished".

>Any gun that has a locking mechanism will be more complicated than one that doesn't

You need proper locking mechanism to contain the pressures of a rifle, as delaying the bolt is not an option for revolver as you've got nothing to delay.

>worm gear

Interesting but it won't help sealing the gap and rotation is already managed by an simpler mechanism. It could work but there's not much room for improvements so it's more of an alternative to the existing function. It keeps the cylinder nicely aligned so there's no need for other complicated mechanisms to do it but my design uses an already existing function that solves our problem while allowing to use an existing rotating mechanism with slight alterations, hopefully.

>Is this system a viable method of revolver operation, or should I just abandon it now before putting any detailed work into it?

Revilver using this would probably be pretty bulky but it could work and properly designed system might be even simpler than the current one, as well as allow greater durability as the locking mechanism tends to become less solid over time and leads to reduced accuracy. I remember hearing about one manufacturer that used to make revolvers with a different or more tightly locking mechanism and got reputation for accuracy. I'd say it can be tried but it's not something that cannot be done using existing designs and is unlikely to be as compact so it's not a priority. If you like the design - give it a try but i'd take a lot of effort to master it, especially since it'd likely to require redesign of the whole revolver mechanism to be practical.

>Would it really not work to reduce recoil that much?

No. It's important for handguns because you absorb recoil with your hand and so higher axis of the recoil force creates muzzle flip which is bad. It doesn't really reduce felt recoil that much but works similar to how a compensator would helping reduce time to get sights on target. Rifles have stock and so the recoil goes into the shoulder anyway. It might do something but it would require a lot of additional engineering for an unnoticeable advantage.

>This design is a separate thing from what you're working on.

The problem is that your design does not really offer a way to solve the gap issue unless you use my mechanism but i've already thought of utilizing the mechanism for other functions as well so it would be more complex and its advantages wouldn't be utilized as well as they could be.

>I was hoping for it to be if not more compact than current revolvers then at least not significantly larger, but I like the simplicity and especially the durability.

We're talking about revolver rifles so i don't think that size would be an issue. It might be a bit thicker but other than that there are plenty of ling actions that do fine while this one does not have a bolt moving and so is by design a bit shorter.

>The idea is that the ratchet/striker assembly would work as a sort of bolt equivalent.

It's hard for me to imagine that. From my understanding, the back wall behind the cylinder works as the bolt, holding the cartridge in place and contains firing pin/striker. It's a part of the frame and so is solid which aids durability and reduces bulk required to contain the same pressure.

It pushes the cylinder back onto the lugs locking it in place and holding the shells from moving backwards. I'm pretty fond of the design.

> it shouldn't have substantially more mass than an average weapon of its role

i don't think it will. Bolt is nothing but a solid frame and so weights less and therefore compensates for the additional weight of the round lugs that lock the extension backwards.

>It should theoretically have everything it needs to be a semi-auto revolver with ease.

Ok, i didn't really get it but if you find time to make a template of it then please post it here, it would be interesting even if it doesn't fit into the rifle's design because of single-action only mechanism.


ea61c6  No.615153

Your mechanism has an advantage of not needing to lock the cylinder when firing because it's already locked with the worm gear but that's all so if my mechanism is required to seal the chamber then it's easier to use my method of locking the cylinder because it utilizes the mechanism by adding very few parts and possibly even using slightly altered parts from other models because of conventional design.

>QC issues

The only thing I've noticed is that the 'flag' that pops up to warn you that the hammer is cocked (the little red pin) tends to stick in the warning position. Most reviews I've read tend to consider it an unnecessary feature and I can't really say I'm too fussed up over it since I know what I've cocked the hammer. There's a bit of wear on the frame where the cylinder release is, but I think that's pretty normal. Mine's produced a thin line on the outer edge rather than the more general scraping you see in this picture, so it might have something to do with how you operate it.

>How do you like it?

It's a lot of fun to shoot, and I've probably taken to it with more enthusiasm than any other gun I own. As advertised, there's very little muzzle rise. I watched a friend practice some one-handed shooting with both his CZ75 and the Rhino, and noted significantly less muzzle rise with the Rhino, despite the caliber differences.

It could work and i already offered the mechanism but it has plenty of issues:

Your bolt was fixed and not it's moving

You have to add more material to it to compensate for moving parts, it would increase wear because it's still not a part of the frame, increase complexity and would require moving the whole mechanism to the back of the frame what is an aesthetic and technical issue as it'd increase bulk and might prevent usage of our reloading method. You also now have to move the bolt instead of the extension and the issue of holding it is a lot bigger because all the pressure will be directed at the bolt instead of all inner walls of the extension. Are you expecting to hold all of it by holding the trigger or something? Your bolt needs to be locking but circular lugs from my design won't work because they're too weak to prevent what is essentially blowback. Even if you manage to make a construction that can do that it'll still be weaker than the one of the lever action or especially the robust locking mechanism of bolt action.

>That's probably about as good as it's going to get for precision on a non-locking revolver rifle.

A non-locking revolver rifle is a bad idea that will never live because

These are the 2 models i'll plan to use as the basis of my own design, though the mechanism of operating revolver with not the trigger but the hammer is a bit unusual as single actions have a very simple analog of it.

If you can't factor in a spring-loaded cylinder and advancing recoil plate similar to the Nagant, I think you're bluffing and have no idea what you're doing - it's a very simple concept that doesn't require copying if you're actually serious about it.

Well, i'm not going to say i know what i'm doing but i'm still pretty serious about it and have plenty of autism and free time to back it up. It sure can be done without this but it's useful to use time-proven designs or at least help me in further understanding. I want to repurpose the mechanism so that the work to operate the gun is done by cocking it like an advanced single action. Nagant is one of the simplest double action revolvers so i thought it may be useful in adding functions to a single action. Thanks for the image.

>cylinder shroud

Maybe, though cleaning would be pretty difficult. Though designing a seal around the cylinder is easier. You'd still be stuck with the old locking mechanism though, and that's not good. Allso, i don't really like that your chambers are filled with hot gasses under pressure every time you shoot, even if cookoff is unlikely. It's still and issue of heat management. Overall, the locking mechanism would make the gun a lot cleaner and more pleasant to shoot.

>cylinder no longer has to move back and forth

That's not really a problem - it's still fixed, it only needs a little bit of complexity and only 1 additional spring.

> I have no idea why every revolver doesn't have a cylinder shroud

Unnecessary bulk. Revolvers don't have barrels long enough for the shroud to have any impact on performance, most likely.

>>616749

I've found plenty of stuff, the issue i have with it is i'm not good at drawing and so it'd end up either trying to redraw this shit in paint which is really painful or get some other software which i now cannot do.

>Sealing the cylinder removes the need for any additional locking mechanisms.

How so? You remember that you still need to align the MOVING cylinder with the barrel, even if it's shrouded?

>Maybe having only a partial shroud would be better to stop cookoff and cut down on some weight.

Doesn't really solve an issue. It probably can be done but it feels messy for me, literally and figuratively. It doesn't really matter whether it's a full shroud or only part of the cylinder is covered, the principle is the same and you still should seal the gasses from going in the gap anyway, either by bearing or some flaps/things be the seal on the cylinder or encase it entirely.

>This is true for most revolvers, but this is a revolving rifle.

You asked about why don't revolvers have cylinder shroud - that's why. We don't have revolver rifles for different reasons but we still only have short revolvers today.

Revolvers are still obsolete, but this would be great for some stylish shooting.


e404ea  No.629306

>>625760

Fixed barrel auto loaders might have better inherent accuracy than a revolver in many cases, but a revolver tends to be far more accurate inherently than standard combat auto loaders with non fixed barrels. Thus one of the greatest theoretical advantages of a high end combat revolver is extremely high reliability combined with high accuracy potential. GIGN knew of this and kept their 357 Magnums around. Sure, most handgun action is close range so its a moot point in most cases, but in some situations it can be helpful. Also makes it a better hunting gun than a combat auto loader, good revolvers can have good enough accuracy to kill animals at range, a Glock 10mm does not. Even if you take up hobby or serious bullseye shooting, an average decent combat revolver can compete far better than an off the rack combat auto loader. A $300 police surplus S&W Model 10 can shoot better than many bullseye shooters can shoot, far better than any brand new combat auto loader for $200 more.

As mentioned by another poster, easier to reload in general. Easier to keep track of brass, rim controlled headspace or even moonclip controlled headspace makes reloading a breeze. Auto loaders generally headspace ont he neck, making crimping a difficult task in many cases, not so with a revolver. Crimp light to save your brass, crimp hard to prevent bullet movement under recoil or maximize slow powder burn, its up to you. Too much, or too little crimp will cause major issues with function in an auto loader.

Revolvers can be as reliable with any load or bullet as any other load or bullet. Revolvers aren't sensitive to bullet shape because there is no feed ramp, they are as reliable with light powder puff target loads as full house maxed hot loads. Even some combat auto loaders might not like this bullet or that load, but a revolver does not care. Too much power or espeically too little power in an auto loader might cause cycling problems that can get you killed, best to stay with ammunition of the correct power/pressure to help ensure proper cycling in an auto loader. Johnny Brokedick who can't afford to practice much with his self defense ammunition doesnt' have to worry if he loads up his gun with high end self defense rounds, they will work just fine. He might have nasty surprise if he loads his magazine in his auto loader and only finds out they won't cycle his weapon in a self defense, life or death scenario.

Vietnam poster makes note that if a dud happens in a revolver, all you have to do is load the next cylinder. I'd also point out that all manual guns are meant to be cycled manually, this means they are better suited to tough cycling than any auto loader. A guy with a dirty revolver that's sticky just needs to put a little bit more pressure into pulling the double action or pulling back the hammer single action, his gummy dirty gun still works, even if we yell at him for poor maintenance later. The guy with a dirty gummy auto loader might find the gun won't cycle or go into battery at all. We don't get the chance to give him hell over a dirty gun after the fact because he's dead. Things like wrong lubrication and/or cold temperatures the revolver can be forced to work where an auto loader might not work or is far harder to force into battery and made to work with malfunctions.

Actually, the cylinder gap's main problem is not loss of pressure but inconsistency that prevents accuracy and gassing the shooter.

I've also already pointed out a few times before that automatic cycling is not necessary and might probably be a hindrance even if you could ever properly design it.

>This is the only way to completely close off the space between the chamber, the barrel and the back of the gun without relying on an automatic mechanism or a shroud.

Duh, why not just make a good single-action revolver rifle with tight tolerances around the cylinder and crisp trigger instead of messing with awful nagant trigger? Sure it won't be as good as a lever action but that's not why they are loved, aren't they? Make a rifle version with good ergonomics, tight tolerances and good cylinder locking mechanism(like one company used to do in their revolvers and so got reputation of being more accurate) and there you go, it's a manual cycling rifle that is faster than lever action and might be on par with non-bumpfire pump action. You also have all the info and technology you need and even most of the designs have already become public domain. Just keep that cylinder gap narrow and you'll get a bit more gasses in there. Might as well add some gas shield that prevents them from burning your hand and only escape from the other side. Actually, MTs-255 is a good example of a working gun that has its uses and is not a hindrance. They also seem to have started production once again, though 10kbux would probably fuck these bitches up again.

I found out that cylinder gap isn't that much of an issue and that you can shield your hand from the blast from it. My ideas are still pretty cool and do help align the cylinder as well but these things can be partially fixed by using simpler means that could also reuse current technologies. Sure, suppressors are a no-go and cleaning would take a bit more time but these things would be compensated by the cool factor so why not? Especially since the blast would be smaller if you go with carbine barrel, which you should as .357 mag is pointless from 16"+ barrel anyway.

>there isn't a rimmed cartridge made for this purpose yet

It was made long before sniper rifles did, it's called 7.62x54r aka .308 rimmed. It's bottlenecked though, so there's that. You don't need to use it though, as the purpose of the gun is not there. Better look for or design around 30-30 as it is also bottlenecked and is very popular and widespread where you're aiming. 357mag and 35-70 are good but you'll have to offer something in between, preferably without relying on rimless cartridges like 500sw.

> But shouldn't you gain the ability to use non-rimmed rounds in a revolver by using the disc?

I'm going to sleep now so i'll look into it after i wake up tomorrow. For now i've got a weird idea of having the cylinder locked "by default" and only unlock to rotate when swinging it out or rotating. Something like 1mm in the forward position against some neck that goes into the edge of the chamber. You can unlock it either by pulling it backwards or making the barrel edge/neck/extension like a ramp so that it can be rotated after falling in. I also don't like the use of locking lugs - too much machining and unneeded application. Just use some bland gas operated intermediate rifle instead for the same cost, because "bland" and "good enough" are the modern motos of the military and cucked arms manufacturers.

Ok, i'm here.

>The MTR-8 is reputedly very accurate despite the shortness of its barrel

The length of the barrel does not impact accuracy, it only decreases velocity gain and increases trajectory, but consistency of shots is still highly dependent on the barrel quality, not length.

>It seems that the cylinder disc can help the chamber retain gas pressure by forming a seal over the back of the chamber

Brass already expands and forms a seal in any revolver, but what this thing might do is reduce the space between the cartridge and back wall(bolt) akin to having tight tolerance between back side of the cylinder and back wall, so the cartridge doesn't move as much when fired and aids accuracy. I suspect that using this feature it might be easier to do that then to work with back wall directly, as it's a part of the frame and contains firing mechanism.

>Combining this with a Nagant-style moving cylinder allows both sides of the chamber to be completely sealed during the firing process

It makes the feature pointless, as you move the cylinder forward, making the tight seating of the cartridge and the cylinder disc nonexistent.

>ealing the back and the front of the chamber simultaneously

If you're going to implement moving cylinder mechanism just look at my previous design - it pushes cylinder against the back wall, securing the cartridge and seals the gasses, all while simultaneously locking the cylinder in place. All while requiring possible even less parts than some of your inspirational designs.

>You can also have the cylinder relocated and/or use a 6:00 barrel for maximum accuracy assist

I already noted a while ago that the only thing that 6:00 barrel does is lower bore axis, which only reduces felt recoil, muzzle climb and makes consecutive shots faster. It doesn't increase accuracy and may even lower it due to shifted balance and it will do nothing in a non-handgun design, as stock almost completely negates the issue of bore axis. Try to understand what a feature does instead of imagining things or at least pay more attention to others' words and corrections next time.

>you can add a set of locking lugs to this

Now this is an interesting feature. You'd have to make the cylinder disc thick enough to act as a regular bolt and locking would probably require additional actions to reload but it could work, though it won't really go well with other designs. It's additional weight that will fatigue your finder either when pulling the trigger or when cocking the hammer, as you have to not only pull the cylinder but the bolt as well, and the bolt is also required for each chamber. You could mate it with nagant system but it'd require plenty of redesign to remove problems with nagant. You could use it in a normal revolver with a cylinder gap but it won't offer much compared to a model with a tight gap between back wall and the cylinder.

>My idea was to have a powerful enough hammer to move the disc forward with the cylinder and maintain the seal.

I appreciate the unsuppressed levels of autism but even a sledgehammer is unlikely to stop blowback of a firearm. Especially if it's more powerful than 9mm. You also have to actually hit the primer instead of using the hammer as basically the bolt mover. Lol.

>Very interesting choice of words to describe my ideas there

I meant all those matebas and sheeit, they are very complex mechanically.

>I actually got the impression that a 6:00 barrel at worst does nothing for accuracy

At worst you don't get a working gun. At best, it's a fancy gimmick that would need you to raise sights more while requiring more parts and a lot more engineering.

>I can't see the harm in it even if it does nothing extra

A LOT more engineering.

>I was thinking of incorporating the locking lugs separately from the cylinder disc

My thought was that they disc locks onto the cylinder so you've basically got a locked chamber with a cartridge there. Whether the actual lugs and grooves are located on the cylinder or the disc and vice versa doesn't really matter, it's a general principle for now anyway.

>How would you go about this?

You have the same moving cylinder moving forward but now you've got a thick disc-bolt locked onto it from the other side so when the bullet leaves the chamber the case doesn't move backwards as much and helps accuracy. It would be problematic to implement the mechanism due to the whole action of moving the cylinder is operated by the trigger pull, as well as holding the cylinder in forward position, so you either get lots of stress from the cylinder pushed backwards when firing or you get your trigger forcefully pushed into its starting position, probably hurting your finger. If you can release the mechanism right after firing so the blowback happens only after combustion when the cylinder is already released you could pull this off but it's still problematic and i'm unsure if it'd actually improve anything with that setup.


ea61c6  No.635624

>>635622

The thing with nagant is that its cartridges are pushed back when firing, allowing the cylinder to hold still and maintain the seal, while if we secure them with the cylinder then blowback would move the whole construction and won't work.

>You'd do this by having a narrow piece on the face of the hammerhead that goes through a tiny hole in the disc

It'd connect with the primer before it does with the disc and starts pushing afterwards, otherwise it won't work.

>That all sounds very complicated. There has to be an easier way

I offered a solution - push the cylinder backwards instead of forward and use a barrel/chamber extension to contain the gasses. That way you won't actually have pressure pushing directly against your mechanisms all while containing the gasses in the single chamber and align the cylinder. I've already mentioned it and even drawn a schematic.

Could you use a .44 Magnum round for a semiautomatic carbine? I assume that it would find its niche there (and that trying to control a full retard spray of .44 Mag would be its own punishment). It sounds like a round that would fit that role almost perfectly, being more powerful than something you'd want to put through a pistol; but lighter, and at least potentially cheaper when compared to rifle rounds. Use it with hollowpoints or frangibles and it sounds like something that would be perfect for police/urban use (you don't need the range of a full rifle, but ideally you want to keep the one hit incapacitation potential without risking over-penetration).

My Pietta 1873 SAA 1st gen is annoying the fuck out of me. The rivet holding the firing pin into the hammer broke after a few hundred dry fires onto snapcaps before I could even take it to the range. Then I got a new rivet after waiting three weeks for it to arrive and got it into place very poorly honestly, I'm an idiot when it comes to tools and shit so I ended up only getting two thirds of it into place before it started peening like crazy so I ground the rest off and now it's fucking broken again.

I just ordered a new hammer for the damn thing so I hope that fixes it, but is there any way to just completely fix the firing pin into the hammer without using a rivet? Maybe soldering or something? Is there any reason not to do this?

Do cartridges suffer a significant decrease of performance if they are fired from a revolver that is designed for a similar, but longer one? E.g. is .45 ACP a lot worse if it's fired from a revolver chambered for .460 S&W?


7b760e  No.637745

As long as the bulletclip fits in the ammohole propper and the shooting tube can withstand the explosion, it should be fine. Probably no more so than .38 special in a revolver chambered for .357

The biggest problem is the increase in freebore before they hit the forcing cone. You get gas leaking past the bullet and you can't ensure the projectile swages into the rifling the same way each shot.

How significant is this? Fuck if I know.

That was your first mistake. If you find yourself wanting a different one, shell out for either Uberti or Cimarron.

Original 1873 revolvers had the pin integrated into the hammer, so soldering, welding, or otherwise permanently affixing it is perfectly acceptable. Pietta only rivets it in because they're cheap bastards.

>>637722

There's fairly insignificant performance loss for most practical use, issues would only be apparent at longer ranges. The most popular revolver for this is the .410 Judge using .45LC and despite being a Taurus it seems to work just fine with no negative effects.

The shape of the projectile ensures it will make it into the barrel, at the very least, despite the excess chamber length it has to clear.

That happens with normal use, to a somewhat lesser extent.

So it's only a problem if you mind the wasted material, but not a reason for sleepless nights. Now for a trickier question: what if you gave a .357 Magnum revolver a 7.62 barrel, and used moonclips to fire 7.62 Tokarev? I really can't decide if it would work just fine, or if you'd have bullet fragments flying all over the place.

That is the Pachmayr logo on the grip. The stamps on the crane are factory assembly/inspection marks (not sure which you meant).

I think the friction caused by the force exerted on the walls of the chamber from the expansion of the brass plays a part in it too. I don't know how much, but if it's enough to make it explode without support, then it must be pretty high.

Pump actions rifles use detachable magazines, lever actions have a tube - Henry has rifles with detachable magazines but they're expensive so they can get fucked.

Lever action rifles require comparatively more movement to cycle the action, and you're removing your dominant hand from the grip each time.

Case probably wouldn't have enough strength to not blow up in the gaps through which links connect. It could also cause a chain reaction, igniting other cartridges. Moonclip holds the cartridges on their rim so that doesn't happen, there's probably a reason for that.

>500 buckaroos

Depends entirely on what you want out of your prospective wheelgun. if yout want something utilitarian that you can plink, small game hunt, defend or offend with, i'd recommend either a +p rated .38 or a cheaper .357. There's quite a bit of those for under $500. Charter Arms is probably one of the best makers though. However, if you can find one i would say fuck all that noise and get you an old model 10. Old Smith and Wessons are in my opinion the greatest guns I've ever had the privilege of owning. which is why i'll say avoid new Smith and Wesson like the plague. Canted barrels, fucked up forcing cones and timing so loose you'd think it was a child prostitute in Bangkok. you don't even need a feeler gauge to tell that a new Smith is going to have a cylinder gap of over .008. Hell, Smith will tell you .012 is within acceptability when i could pull a model 10 from 60 years ago and it'll be no more than .004.

Since your budget is decent enough i won't recommend, Taurus. they work but that's about it. I did however buy an 85 a few months ago and have been very surprised with it. i'm still salty that it worked better than the the 3 different M&Ps i bought. Seriously what the fuck?

Barrel length is going to be a personal choice, but i'm partial to 4" guns, especially if i'm buying a .38. For some reason, most manufacturers market self defense ammo in the .38 special that only works well in longer barrels. If you absolutely need something that'll fit into your gym shorts, carry semi wadcutters. Preferably FBI load semi wadcutters.

If you think you're a big boy and need to go big bore, for the last 10 or so years .44 special has made a bit of a comeback, it's the precursor to .44 mag. Charter arms has a line of under 500 guns chambered in it.

>Smith & Wesson so shitty ecks dee

I have an S&W 686 with a few years on it, no internal lock. It's the nicest revolver I've ever handled and was willing to actually abuse. I buy Underwood 125gr bonded JHP for defensive and hunting ammo, 1700-1750 ft/s, and I haven't noticed any abnormal gas blow-by with it. The timing is better than some Rugers and pretty much any non-grandpa Colt I've handled, very little wiggle room at all. If I cock back the hammer for single action I can keep an inch group at 10 meters. Where are you getting your information from? Is this just shilling?

Also, .38 Special is literally inferior to 9mm Parabellum, why would you ever recommend this? The only way to achieve similar or better performance is to run it through a dedicated .357 Magnum pistol so you don't damage the gun, and even then you're spending a lot of money and pushing the limits for no reason when you should really just be using something that isn't a 120 year old black powder cartridge. I'm seriously questioning your experience, man.

>.44 Special

That's even weaker than the .38, you fucking mongoloid. At the very least use .44-40 Winchester if you want to LARP as a cowboy or a 1920s detective, because that round actually has higher loading tolerances than .44 Magnum.

Congrats, you found a working gun. want a cookie?

>Where are you getting your information from? Is this just shilling?

Personal experience bub, as previously mentioned, i had 3 separate M&Ps spit lead within the first 200 rounds. Shitty fucking RIA's don't even do this. but I've also rejected a gun at the dealer because of a crack in the forcing cone. Go ahead and try to rationalize this but 4 fucked guns in a row is enough for me to never go near your hot garbage again.

>Also, .38 Special is literally inferior to 9mm Parabellum, why would you ever recommend this?

Yes, it is the same size and (generally) same weight bullet going a little slower depending on the load, but if you seriously think .38 special is anemic by any metric you're functionally retarded. more men have been put in the dirt with a .38 than dicks you've sucked this week. It is a perfectly usable cartridge. to say otherwise tells me you don't actually know as much as you think you do. i also don't think you actually read what i posted, i only made one specific recommendation and that's for the older Model 10. because it's one of the best made guns i've ever owned. the only reputable double action .357s under 500 are the previously mentioned charter arms. .357 rugers, smiths, dan wessons and colts. are all 600 and up. get off your fucking shill horse and read nigger.

>the "+P will blow up your gun" meme

if your gun is rated for it, it will have no problems using it. it only has the risk of slightly lowering overall round count before needing servicing if you only shoot +p through it. but it's the difference between a gun shooting 4000 rounds before getting a rework to a gun to going 5000 rounds before a rework. +P is not for plinking. if you only shoot it for training and defensive use you will be fine. but i can tell you've never put more than 1000 through a gun.

>That's even weaker than the .38, you fucking mongoloid

In what fucking universe you cum swilling faggot? any of the defensive loads are throwing a 180gr bullet at 1000 fps + or - 50 depending on weather and chronograph variability. that's a larger heavier bullet going faster than any standard weight .38 special +p. only the retardedly anorexic 90 to 110 grain loads go faster but they still don't keep up in the energy department.

I swear to fucking god you armchair faggots who are married to your pet brand are the worst

Looking at kikepedia, the standard loaf of a .45-70 can propel a 300 grain projectile with a velocity of 2,069 ft/s, and the .460 S&W can do 2,060 ft/s with the same weight. But the test barrel for the .45-70 is 24" long, and for the .460 it's just 8.375". Is the .460 superior then? There is also a strong load for the .45-70 with a velocity of 2,275 ft/s; but I suspect that the .460 would do just as well with a 24" barrel, even without changing the amount of powder in it.


f31b89  No.664672

>>664604

.460 S&W is loaded with fast burning pistol powders that will offer little benefit at long barrel lengths in comparison to slower burning powders with lower peak pressures. .45-70 also has much greater case capacity, meaning that in a rifle that can take it, it can be loaded much hotter without exceeding the pressure limits of the case. .45-70 is also typically loaded with a 405 grain bullet and 450 is not uncommon, offering penetration and hydrostatic shock potential that are unmatched due to the heavier bullet's much greater momentum.

Look up load data from real shooters. .45-70 is capable of far more than what the mainstream ammo producers make of it, because they're paranoid about fudds blowing up ancient Springfield Trapdoors with smokeless powder loads. 3500 ft-lbs is well within achievable range with a strong rifle.

f28de6  No.665935

If you're comparing them with a bolt action with a stripper clip guide, they are absolutely slower to load. I shot lever guns a few times, and found them awkward to cycle, but I think someone experienced could cycle them as fast as you could a bolt action.


ea61c6  No.665939

>>665932

You can cycle lever actions faster than bolt actions, for sure, as well as not lose the sight picture in the process. Pump action would be even faster still, but it's heavier, bulkier and is also more front-heavy.

In terms of reloading mags go first, stripper clips go second, then revolver clips, than manual loading, with revolvers, being a bit faster than bolt actions and lever(pump) actions which are somewhat similar.

A lever action is by no means an optimal choice and a bolt action is cheaper, a lot longer range and versatility but i'd take a lever action or pump action for shorter ranges over it, with the former one if i was going to carry it around and shoot for fun as well, while the latter if we'd be going full tactical for manual action.

It's a matter of experience. Someone who doesn't use a lever action rifle much will always pussyfoot the lever and stuggle with it. It's the same with autofags who ride the slide instead of just letting it go. once you gain confidence with one you can cycle them retardedly fast.

What is the relationship between the diameter of the cylinder and the amount of cartridges it can hold? Or to be more direct, how many .347 Magnum cartridges can a cylinder "sized for" .45 Colt hold? Six? I've also read about revolvers that originally came out as six-shooters, but later got seven-shot variants. Do they usually use a bigger cylinder, or it has the same diameter but made of a stronger steel?

And for shit and giggles: how gigantic would be a 10-shot .357 Magnum cylinder, and how many .45 cartridges could it hold?


697e44  No.667088

>>666949

The original 357 Magnum revolver was the N frame S&W, also known then as the 44 frame because it was purposely built for the 44 Special, it was also used for the 45 ACP in World War One as their version of the 1917 revolver, and later the Model 25 was introduced as a 6 shot 45 Colt variation of the N frame. My M27, like the original 357 magnum, only holds 6 rounds. BUT, the same 6 shot 45 Long Colt cylinder is now used to make specialty 8 shot 357 magnum cylinders. So, the answer is 8.
