Jacob’s rifle

Designed by brigadier general John Jacob c.1859 and manufactured by Swinburn&Sons c.1862 for Jacob’s own Indian rifleman regiment – serial number 370.
.524 caliber bullet with four .585 notches that fit the gun’s rifling, fitted with a copper-cased fulminate mercury insert, percussion lock, side-by-side twin barrels, express and ladder sights. Side-mounted saber bayonet.
Nothing like a high-precision antimateriel to fight in the 1860′s.
