Hahaha that thing is AWESOME. Now lets figure out how to rig it to blast all 16 barrels at once, that'd be a beast of a shotgun pistol!

"All The Information You Need On The Pepperbox Pistol"

The Pepper-box revolver or simply pepperbox (also "pepper-pot", from its resemblance to the household pepper grinder) is a repeating firearm that has three or more barrels grouped around a central axis. It mostly appears in the form of a multi-shot handheld firearm. Pepperboxes exist in all ammunition systems: matchlock, wheellock, flintlock, percussion, pinfire, rimfire and centerfire.

The pepperbox should not be confused with a volley gun (like the seven-barrel longgun made by Nock), a firearm that fires multiple projectiles simultaneously by use of multiple barrels. The difference is that a volleygun fires all the barrels simultaneously while the pepperbox is a repeater. Also a firearm with multiple barrels next to each other (like the Jarre) is not a pepperbox: It is called a "Harmonica gun"......[More]

The following come from a page with 66 images on it that can take a few minutes to load.
It shows side profiles revealing some of the many nipples.

PEPPERBOX, the collection:

[And there's even a flintlock version]
