Throughout all of recorded human history people have been killing each other. Each and every period of our existence is marked by bloody battles between people whose perceived differences motivate them to continually advance weapons technology in an effort to preserve their way of life and avoid subjugation. This has resulted in some pretty interesting and terrifying tools of destruction being collected over the centuries, and now we’d like to share with you a few of the more unique ones.
12. The Enouy Revolver
Rather than featuring the standard six bullet capacity we’ve all come to associate with revolvers, the Enouy revolver let gunslingers fire an incredible 48 shots without having to reload. The gun was created by Joseph Enouy in England in 1855. Its enlarged revolving chambers earned it the nickname the “Ferris Wheel” and, while its impressive bullet count was revolutionary at the time, its actual functionality was less than impressive. For starters, the handgun was extremely heavy which made aiming much more difficult. And, on top of that, it was more or less impossible to holster which meant if you wanted to take it into action, you pretty much had to carry it wherever you went. Unsurprisingly, the Enouy revolver never went into mass production and was soon forgotten.http://firearmshistory.blogspot.ca/2014/03/the-enouy-revolver.html Source: Firearmshistory.blogspot.ca
