    Having seen the 329PD, I found myself wondering today just how many .22 LR/.22 WMR holes could be bored in a titanium N-frame cylinder.

    11? 12? 13?

    Uber Kit Gun, anyone? :uhoh:

    So would this be an N-Framed gun ? Or just an N-Frame cylinder ?

    Oh, an N-frame gun, to minimize tooling changes. Just use a thicker aluminum barrel shroud with a smaller-diameter steel barrel sleeve.

    Tamara,
    If you can get them to build one, push for another chambered for the new .17 and an 8 3/8ths barrel, would ya?

    Is Delmar planning to use a revolver for Prarie Dog hunting ;)

    Tamara, you should be able to figger it out with calipers and tracing paper. You wouldn't need a whole lot of cylinder wall between chambers for .22LR. Maybe a bit more for WMR.

    I wonder if N-frame owners would buy 'em as practice guns? Keep your N-frame skills up for pennies a session...

    I'd much rather have a .22 mag autoloader, but that's just me. :cool:

    But then, .22 mags are so ridiculously overpriced, what's the point? :rolleyes:

    I clicked on this link half expecting Tamara to be proposing an auto-revolver based on Bender's power supply.

    Same here. I was actually wondering how the hell you'd get Beer to touch off well enough to propel bullets....

    And who'd want to waste good beer doing that? Unless you used crap like Mad Dog and King Cobra / Natural ice....

    Still, beer and guns make for good discussions.

    I also beleive most of the better ideas of the last 500 years were originated over a good beer.

    Drink another Tamara, let's see what other good ideas you have!

    The N frame cylinder is probably large enough for two rings of chamber holes. You would have an upper barrel and a lower barrel. I figure you could get about 20 rounds that way

    I was kinda expecting that myself.

    It has been done before. I think it was some belgian outfit. The gun mounted to your wrist with a strap and the trigger was this big lever with a ring on it. Had two barrel and held alot of ammo. I think the frame hinged upward for loading.

    This is fueled by red bull, not beer:D

    How about 3 smaller cylinders clustered together around a central axis, & each cylinder rotating independently.

    Or a large ring shaped cylinder that works like a belt?

    each can be a modular assembly that can be attached to the N frame.

    Got the red bull shakes, gotta go...

    I would love to see a K frame along the lines of "Ti PD" finish. Standard 6 rounds or heck to make it more slim 5 rounds. 9mm, 10mm, or .45. I think it would be more controllable on the larger frame, and still be nice to tote around.:)

    Ok, Tamara, ante up...

    What brand of beer have you been drinking, exactly?:D

    OT though it may be, some of us are interested.

    Owen has described a thing that actually did exist- a two barreled small bore revolver with two rows of cylinder chambers.

    how about salvo-fire six-tree gun? take one in .45 or .454 (maybe you'll need a .480) and make chamber inserts each holding 3 .22LR rounds in parralel. make barrel insert with 3 parallel .22 caliber bores. make triple-head firing pin.

    now you got youself a SPIWvom sidearm (comment: in Russian, Beer = Pivo, "S Pivom" means "with beer" :cool: )

    just imagine firing 3 .22 caliber rounds in a salvo... Not teh completely original, but weird enough for fun :p

    How about a 7 shot .410 caliber built into the new .500 Smith frame with a 6-8" barrel. It could fire both .41 magnum and .410 shot.

    Is this the answer to a question absolutely no one asked, or is it something brilliant?

    You could hunt both whitetail deer and grouse in the same day, without changing your gun, or even the cylinder.

    Jeff,
    Change your .41 mag to .45 Colt and it just might work.
