Guycot 40-Shot Chain Pistol

Hide the anti-gunners as this old 40 shot pistol will blow their minds.

This 40-shot pistol dates way back to 1878.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons checks out the incredibly high capacity Guycot 40-Shot Chain Pistol.

Question of the day: in how many states or areas is this pistol, made way back in 1878, illegal to own currently?

With a total of 40 shots the French Invented Guycot Chain Pistol was quite ahead of it’s time. The black powder cartridges were loaded into a chain and forwarded until 40 rounds are loaded. Think about the modern day Glock 17 9mm pistol only holds 17 rounds. With 10-round magazine restrictions or worse in some areas today this antique weapon could easily outclass a modern pistol in firepower.

Great job Ian from Forgotten Weapons for finding such an unusual weapon. Thank you for keeping firearm history alive.
