Colt Revolving Carbine

The Colt Revolving Carbine wasn't a very popular gun in the civil war. Though it did have an interesting concept it did more harm than good. It is like a pistol revolver but with an extended bore and rifle stock. The loading techniqe is the same as a revolver. It tended to fire all five chambers at once blowing the fingers and hands of the the soldier.
