This device is a long, iron tube that fires extremely

Of superior mechanical design, the mechanical rifle
is a relatively new and exotic device that can fire
many shots before needing to be reloaded. Ammunition

Bulkier, but more reliable than the dueling arm, the
side arm is a well known back up weapon in many armies

two hands to reload a side arm.
A marvel of mechanical design, the six gun holds up
to six shots in a rotating drum for rapid firing. Ammunition
is sold in special speed loading containers to aid in
swift reloads. It takes one hand to rotate the drum,

Reloading a single bullet or six bullets from a speed
loader into a six gun is a move action.
