Seems like a bad idea & looks horrible. What more could you not ask for?

In just about every SA rifle I can think of, the action of chambering the first dound also cocks the hammer. What would the purpose of having a DA rifle be, to eliminate a manual safety, like a Glock pistol?

There was a double action shotgun briefly offered. I think to guard against ADs by lightly trained personnel who could not be counted on to "remember" a safety.

Seems like a bad idea & looks horrible. What more could you not ask for?I rather like it, though it is near purposeless (and I doubt that I will even bother with .410 shells), and plan to purchase one in the near future. Are they out yet?

there have been a few posts lately talking about how they don't make the old double barrel rifle/shotguns anymore. This could be similar in purpose. You just better remember how you loaded the shells.

Half-sumthin', two parts sumthin' else. Ugly as a cross between a raccoon & a timber rattler. A waste of the steel and wood its put together with. :)

A waste of the steel and wood its put together with.That's your opinion, I like it (I bet there is at least one other guy out there that does too) and will probably end up with one.

reminds me of an old colt root revolving rifle. I also tend to think it looks pretty cool, but i am planing on getting a revolving carbine C&B (remmington style) from Uberti first. May be it will be a later purchse.

Silly. Personally, I never want "all that" going on so close to my face. I love revolvers and own over three dozen of them but will never understand the desire to put a shoulder stock on one.

. . . and don't forget the sheet-metal shield they had to put on to prevent your support arm from getting burned by the b/c gap . . .

Mossberg had a DA pump gun for a while.

i put a staple in a mini 14 to see how fast i could dump a mag once. Not double action. but bang when you pull the trig & bang when you release the trig. & yes its fast

. . . and don't forget the sheet-metal shield they had to put on to prevent your support arm from getting burned by the b/c gapI see nothing wrong with it, in fact that is the only reason that I am considering buying one, the "Cattleman's Carbines" are deficient in this respect.

So basically its just a double action revolver with a big stock/barrel.?

The revolving carbine pictured may be ugly but you gotta give it respect for it's sheer versatility. In that if moderately accurate it could take deer sized game at 100yds and with a load change shoot rabbits on the run or birds on the wing.
What an awesome survival rifle

A brazilian arms company tried it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAPA_FA-03 . Neat idea, but I don't think it'd ever get off the ground for a rifle designed for civilians.

A brazilian arms company tried it.That looks like a cheap copy of an M17 to me. Not sure I like it, then again, not sure that I don't...need to fire it FA to make an complete and accurate assessment. :D

Here is a Russian Revolving Shotgun. I would like one, but unfortuately they are illegal here in the UK.

No. I respect having two guns that look good and do a specific job, not one ugly gun that does neither job very well. :)

I've never seen anything like that, very cool!
I like the circuit Judge, I think it looks cool, and is a little different compared to most modern rifles today. I own a regular judge, and its accurate enough for me. If I had the $, I would buy one of these.
July 12, 2010, 01:14 PM
Yeah that shotgun is also unobtainable here.
July 12, 2010, 03:57 PM
I'd like see (and have plans one day build) a modern revolving rifle. In 45-70.

Has a semi-automatic double action ever been made? Its something popular for handguns but I've never seen a rifle that uses this action.
The only ones shown are revolver mechanisms.
What advantages does a double action provide to a rifle mechanism?
I can think of more negatives than positives.
