@Exhibitionshooterhamza

Brother, I had pointed it out earlier also that the position of crescent on the Pakistani flag shown in your avatar is upside down. The crescent in your avatar is facing 5 o'clock (indicative of downfall or "Zawal") whereas the correct position of the crescent is facing 2 o'clock approximately (indicative of a take off, "Urooj").

You are once again requested to correct the Pakistani flag on your avatar. (I assume that it is a mistake)

thanks

admitting one's mistake and taking immediate corrective measures is the true mark of a gentleman, which you've just demonstrated. Thank you Sir.

Seems like its been made out of a martini henry RIFLE used by the british...

the one shot capacity and the ejection mechanism also supports my statement, though not sure cent percent.

the pathan brothers probably converted a rifle to a hand gun.... may be for assaination weapon in the early days...

any expert out there to confirm?

As pointed out, its adapted from Martini henry which was made in like 1885. they are Victorian guns with VR and crown sign on them. its 450 cal. huge bullet therefore. later this gun came in 303. i just wonder the recoil of this thing, cause i have a real Martini VR made in 1896, as a collection piece. i dont think a person can easily shoot 450 cal or even 303 they have massive recoil on rifles. a local handgun.!! not sure

I wouldn't mind having one of those in my collection either!

Rifle cartridges in a pistol aren't a problem. The short barrel means the bullet leaves the barrel before most of the powder is burned, so recoil is much less than a rifle.

There single shot pistol called the "Thompson Contender", which is basically a break-open single shot shotgun. The Contender's fame is that the barrels are easily removed and Thompson makes them in a wide range of calibers, plus there are other companies making them. You can put together a Contender in anything from .22 Long Rifle to .45-70.

I have shot a bolt-action Remington XP-100 in .308 Winchester; even with a 10" barrel it wasn't bad.
