It is a mid 19 century SHOT flask.
I'm surprised at this one how quickly it was picked out.

Not much is known about this break-open single-shot shotgun pistol. It’s supposedly Chinese and presumed to be homemade.

Burrhead, even your web site called alloutdoor says its Chinese.

Looks like a harpoon launching device. But, you said it had nothing to do with water.

Good one burrhead
It was actually called the Willams rapid firing machine gun and was from 1861.
The machine gun from what I read had nothing to do with full auto but the fact if acted more like a machine.
Here is a video of one being fired

GarandTd I thought that one would be harder than that. Way to go.
The attached photo is a photo of the Billinghurst Requa battery gun.
It was a 52 cal with 25 heavy barrels.

Mike Irwin, correct sir.
It was invented by Chief of ordnance Major General Gen Josian Gorgas.
The caliber was 1.25 inches. There were 18 copper lined muzzle chambers on the out side ring and 18 corresponding procession cap nipples on the inner.
As the crank was rotated the chambers rotated to line up with the barrel and an inner cam would cause the hammer to hit the percussion cap setting the gun off.

GarandTd, Very good sir.
The Salvator Dormus was a heavy machine gun also known as the Skoda M1893. It was Austro Hungarian in origin.
I was patented by Archduke Kral Salvator of Austria and Count von Dormus.
It was chambered in the 8X50mmR round and fed from an over head magazine. There was a pendulum adjustment in the trigger mechanism that allowed the operator to select the cycle rate of fire, anywhere from 180 to 250 rounds per minute
