Salt Lake Queen - better lit by Shendorion Salt Lake Queen - better lit by Shendorion
Two more shots of the Salt Lake Queen, this time on a neutral backdrop with better lighting.

The stock was an oak stair riser, the plating was a brass kick plate, the rear chamber was a cast brass seedling vase. The muzzle was a doorbell face plate, and the forward chambers are a couple of bits off a lamp and some 1/2" ID copper pipe.

Tools used: band saw, Dremel, hand drill and pinning vise, a miniature fret saw, various files and rasps and sandpapers, and steel wool to smooth the plate edges and take the lacquer off the brass so it'll tarnish.

Each magazine drum would have its own integral barrel.  When the drum is locked into place, the barrel (which would have a port on one side to receive ammunition from one magazine at a time) would engage with the firing mechanism.  Then as the weapon is discharged, the mags would rotate so that a fresh one is aligned with the barrel's inner port after each shot.  A round would then be pushed into the barrel by the action of a spring located at the front of each mag, and the weapon would be ready to fire again.

i think this is a bit too much complex for my little mind to understand

An incredible piece that is for sure! It looks so solid, like it could actually fire. Great work!
