View Full Version : Volley Gun

November 4, 2001, 02:29 PM
Anyone out there ever encounter a French rifle called a "Buffalo-Mitraille"?
It's a single barreled rifle with three (3) bores for .22LR, like a small drilling, the action is tricked to fire the 3 rounds simultaneously with a single pull of the trigger. The use was apparently for long range wing shooting.
I doubt that Federal and State game wardens would look on one of these things with a kind eye, but I'd like to get a good look at one, action, barrel arrangement, overall.
Anyone know of a source for pictures? Ever actually seen one?:confused:

I've seen a number of volley guns on the gunshow circuit, a couple of rifles, and a pistol. I never looked real close at them, usually the owners didn't want you handling their goods, so I didn't bother.
