World's biggest revolver

Many of you have probably seen this revolver before, but I had not. The gigantic wheel gun measures four feet in length!

It was build by Ryszard Tobys and was modeled after the Remington Model 1859 revolver. It is 28mm in caliber (1.1″)!

Thanks to Sven for the link.

    It's a 28mm blackpowder cap-and-ball revolver. You can see the caps and balls next to the smaller pistol in one of the photos. 28mm=1.1 inches, like the comments said.
