    Another one of those (I don't have a photo, unfortunately) was the LeMat revolver. He enlarged the cylinder to 9 rounds and had it rotate not on a solid axle, but on a 12 gauge shotgun barrel. Unfortunately he lived in the Southern States and went broke with the Civil War, and no one ever took the design up again, as far as I know.

    The true functionality of a multi barreled gun is readily found in Europe. The drilling (three barrel) and vierling (four barrel) are the most practical choice for the type of year round multi species hunting that is common to countries like Germany. The utility of a small rifle caliber insert for fox and varmints, paired with a deer caliber and shotgun barrel, all selectable at the trigger just makes sense when the huntable game is multi species at the same time.
