Looks like a cross between a cane, gas regulator and a gun barrel. Never seen anything like that. Strange.

looks like one of the old blackpowder wheelguns, basically a springloaded wheel that scrapes the flint and sets off the charge..

I thought it was an odd looking thing when I came across it and I thought maybe one of you would have seen something like this before. here it is.

Leveraction revolvers
P.W. Porter
One of the earliest was the P.W. Porter Turret Revolver. Made in very limited numbers during the early 1850's, this .41 caliber 9-shot revolver featured a revolving turret that was actuated by working the finger lever. This also cocked the hammer. Priming was automatic and used the pill lock system Barrel length was 5 1/4". This is one of the most unusual revolvers ever made. The problem with it was the same one that plagued Porter's Turret Rifle ... the loaded turret pointed directly at the shooters face! Not a good thing if there happened to be a chain-fire.

I wanted to see if someone new what it was before I gave up all my info. Very Happy But you were right george, it is a gun.
It doesn't look like a very safe operating hangun. It was probably as dangerous behind it as in front of it. Shocked

It looks like something that was around during our civil war days. I have a book somewhere that shows antique weaponry, just can't remember where I put it... Confused

Here's a picture of the rifle version. It looks pretty crude. There are more pics on the link.
