I'd like to have one as well. It goes along nicely with DWAS. Hell I want one of every caliber in blue and stainless. :)

 

At this guys price point though it's just good for a laugh.

Since that is a custom job, it's going to be hard to determine a value. Personally, I wouldn't pay the $1200 asking price, but I would entertain a price in the $700-800 range.

Judging by the nicks on the side cover, whoever has been shooting that sure has a problem letting go of the ejector rod before he closes the cylinder.lol2 Since this is technically the area for photos of unique DW's, I'm posting a few pics from the auction.

Someone clearly put some time and effort into making this gun. Just shows that anything is possible!

I want one too some day. Longer forearm though. I posted on introductions a caution on using a 15" barrel with a shoulder stock.

As long as the barrel is 16 inches or over and it was built originally made as a Pistol. You can go to rifle and back to Pistol. Just make sure you remove the stock before putting a short barrel back on it. Otherwise you will have created a SBR and would need to register it with the ATF.

Regarding flash gaps & forearms.

The old cap & ball "Revolving Rifles" had a similar (& much worse) issue! In the event of a flash over (Chain Fire) where several, or all, the chambers fired the shooters forearm was at serious risk. Although the velocity was comparatively low from chambers discharging to open air, not a barrel it was still a risky proposition.

 

The problem was solved by not holding as we think of holding a modern rifle, but with the butt on the upper arm, not the shoulder & the off hand grasping around the stock wrist. That's why they all have those fancy curlicues in the extra bit at the back of the trigger guard!
