Dwarven Multibarreled Revolver by Imperator-Zor Dwarven Multibarreled Revolver by Imperator-Zor
The Empire of Allergorn is home to some 18 Dwarven Cities (subterranean settlements with a population of more than 20,000) and some 1.82 million Dwarves (about 60% of which live in said cities and smaller enclaves and 40% living among the human population) which play a major role in the Empire's economy. Relations between the Dwarven and Human populations of the Empire have been good since it's creation a thousand years ago. They provide the bulk of the Empire's miners and a large percentage of it's metalworkers, masons, stonecutters, shipwrights, dyers, potters, ceramicists, other such artisans, engineers and merchants. Many of those who live in human cities like Enperisburg or Norgensport has found employment in the rapidly expanding industries that have expanding with Infrastructure, such as expanding armories. Those in Dwaven cities are also interested in Infrastructural technology and often make weapon such as Yorigsov/Ulricson rifles and revolvers, usually producing higher quality versions of them. However the Dwarves are also keen on experimentation and persuing their own projects. This weapon is the product of such a venture.

This pistol has two barrels, the first of which is a 2/5th inch caliber firing lathed brass cartridged ammunition (though varients exist which can accept paper cartridges) and is hooked up to a six shot cylinder loading via break action. The second larger barrel is single shot, has a hinged breechblock loading a 3/5th inch shell, either solid or buckshot. the hammer has a simple toggle system to let the user select which. It's makers advertise it as being quick to reload than Imperial cap-and-ball pistols and that it is a flexible design that's particularly useful against orcs.

This gun, like most dwaven firearms is well made, robust and mechanically reliable. However, this design is also expensive, costing more than three times what a Pattern 1402 revolver would cost as does it's ammunition. Moreover it's heavy, weighing in at 1.78 kilograms and is somewhat awkward to handle. It's ammunition is also currently expensive due to the cost of lathing out brass casings but their are efforts to simplify that process. Mostly these guns have been has been sold to officers in the new Imperial Army using money out of their own pocket as well as knights and town watchmen doing the same.

When in doubt, add another barrel (LOLZ)

Essentially, a centerfire LeMat revolver that works properly.  It's a bit bulky for tunnel rat work and the 20 gauge is probably bad for the firer's eardrums and night vision, though.

Dwarves are not above selling showy things that, while well made and mechanically reliable, are rather impractical. Especially when they ask for such things themselves with a heavy bag of marks.

When there is not enough firepower add more barrels.
