gunsmith, I don't remember ever seeing one that takes metallic cartridges, but maybe someone else here has. I'd be afraid to fire it for fear the barrel/cylinder gap would allow escaping gas burn my arm. That's probably an exaggeration, but it's a bugaboo with me.

Kiesler's Wholesale, one of the advertisers in Shotgun News, is selling a Mateba revolving carbine in .357 Magnum for $799.
1-888-Kiesler or www.kieslersonline.com.
Happy revolving!

I was interested in one myself-until I learned these interesting weapons put the barrel/cylinder gap pretty close to your ears: meaning you really HEAR these babies fire - the first time, anyway.

After that, you're likely to have a pretty good excuse when your spouse says : "You never LISTEN to me ! ":D

I think Dixie Gun Works has a carbine based on the Remington 1875 SA revolver. I thinkl it's .357, but might be just .38 special.

Comes with a bonus hook on the trigger guard for the offhand support so you stay behind the flashgap. IIRC, they're available for a pretty good price, $325 or so, but no promises.

Check at EMF (http://emf-company.com) also.

Here you go. I believe they are being imported by Benelli, but I might be wrong.

I think I'd rather keep my revolvers out at an outstretched arm's length away from my face. I've had some powder and lead spitting with some of my revolvers, when it bites a supporting hand it's one thing but I would rather not bring my face any closer to those expanding gasses around the barrel/cylinder gap.


Atleast with modern revolvers and cartridges you can eliminate the chance of having a chain fire if a spark jumped to a cylinder not in line with the barrel like the old black powder percussion cap revolvers. So from that aspect I suppose it would be a bit safer to make a revolver style rifle/carbine.


Only one of the revolver rifles I would like to have would be a Knights R2 suppressed sniper rifle.

It was the always my understanding that erant sparks on the old cap and ball models could cause all the cylinders to let go effectively ruining your support hand.
