Four-Shot Superposed Ratchet Pistol

Today’s item in the upcoming Rock Island Premier Auction is a rather unusual percussion pistol. It began life as an underhammer gun, and was rebuilt by an unknown gunsmith as a percussion gun that fired four superposed charges with a creative repeating action. Hammer price for this pistol was a rather surprising $10,000.
