What is that unusual revolver that Ed Harris’ character is carrying in the new HBO show “Westworld”? It’s a modern cartridge conversion of a Confederate LeMat grapeshot revolver. Pretty cool!

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
