was not a shotgun but a "smooth bore rifle", see the iron sights. it may work well for a boy to shoot at 25 meter on a target. I will try to press a spitzer bullet from airgun pellets and shoot it with a berdan primer in the hollow base but without powder.




Will turn it into an 'air'gun then mate!




not realy, still hot air. such loaded bullets were common for indoor shooting in the 1850s/60s.
the bullets were fired by a needle but I think why not starting with a common primer from outside.



left is a 4,5 mm airgun pellet for comparison

another system had a screw you turn out and set a primer in a paper hull into
