Treeby Chain Gun

    The Treeby gun was a muzzleloader with 14 chambers in a chain. The create a seal between the chamber and the barrel, the barrel was rotated forward and back.

    It is not hard to see why only two were made. It looks like the gun could easily have been fired without the barrel closed.
