Tacticool is not a modern creation - people have been making arms that are impractical but cool looking for centuries. As a case in point, I present this Model 1864 Milanese style saber-revolver. Several different variations on this theme were made in the mid 1800s, but this one closely follows the type made by one Carlo Maria Colombo in Milan. It is a 6-shot, 7mm pinfire revolver built into the hilt of a saber. Of course, it is a difficult way to aim the revolver, and the saber blade has no tang...
Thanks to Ader of Paris for the chance to film this very cool piece of firearms curiosa!

About Forgotten Weapons
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work.
