Very interesting video, amazing that they had the machining capabilities back then to produce a gun so intricate

If they would have had something sturdier than the soldered air tanks and leather seals the technology would have caught on better in regards to warfare.No telltale BP smoke to betray the shooters location and the volume of fire say 100 trained men could lay down would have been devastating...I like the simplicity of the 22 shot magazine, gravity fed no less,reminds me of tilting a BB gun to load a projectile when I was a kid....when Napoleon's troops caught an enemy soldier with an air rifle they were shot PDQ and labeled an assassin.....Harold
