    I was watching TCM today about 3:00 and there was a western on there was a man with with what at first appeared to be double barrel coach gun. I soon realised that it was a 4 barrel coach :what:gun SxS over SxS when he fired it he would break it open reload then twist the barrel around until the bottom 2 barrels were on top and reload them. It appeared to be a .410 or 20ga. I was wondering if this was actually possible or if it was just another hollywood prop gun.

    Saw a picture of a 4-barrel breach loader of some type once. It had been turned in at an English gun amnesty.

    I can't tell you the action type, as the shot only showed the muzzle... for all I know, the breach was held shut with hex-headed bolts.

    I saw that movie to, it was called " The Stranger Returns". They showed two movies with the Stranger character that day, "The Stanger in Town" then "The Stranger Returns". The actor was named Tony Anthony, and the films seemed to be in the spaghetti western style. They remminded me of some early Clint Eastwood movies, but apparently the Stranger character never took off like Clint's the man with no name character.

    Both movies had the same plot: Guy enters town to find gold, encouters bandits, they take is pistol and beat the crap out of him, he escapes, then kills all the bandits with a shotgun.

    Here's a picture.

    There was one guy around here that had a quad-barrel shotgun. He made it from two Rossi O/U I believe.

    I have seen them in 4 barrel and 6. sharps made a 4 barrel derringer in 22 cal. I have a 6 barrel 32 that is actually quiet light with it's 5 inch barrel it is double action as it cocks the hammer back but you have to rotate the barrel by hand it was made in 1836 by Allen and Thurber and was meant to be used as a club if you didn't want to shoot or was out of bullets

    I once saw a four-barrel (vierlung) .410 at the range. It had two horizontal stacks of barrel-pairs, and was a break-action with exposed hammers. (Can't recall whether there were only exposed hammers for the top barrels, though.) It was pretty darn cool, I have to admit.

    Many moons ago I was amazed by a 7 barreled gun in .22 Hornet. I asked what it was for- the answer: long range goose gun. Obviously it wasn't cheap, and I imagine regulating a 7 barreled gun was a chore requiring great skill.
