Multishot Flintlocks of the Joe Wanenmacher Collection

When it came to producing more firepower in the 16th – 19th centuries, all ideas were on the table. Two notions that appeared in numerous forms were superposed loads and the use of multiple barrels.

These solutions were adept given the absence of self-contained ammunition, and both achieved their goal of firing more shots in less time. Thankfully, the Collection of Joe Wanenmacher gives us ample opportunities to examine the multi shot flintlocks, matchlocks, and wheellocks from a variety of nations, eras, and makers.
