What's that bayonet? Could be a good bayonet for the new Kel-Tec shotgun, if it is what it appears to be (a rail-mount bayonet longer than a pistol bayonet). Shooty-stabby club unite!

Yeah I saw it and immediately said "WTF" so I though posting it here was appropriate.

Thanks to Tineye, I now know that is a Dickson Triple-barrel 16-guage side-lever.
Kilrymont Ian wrote:Dickson triple barrel 16 gauge sidelever

This is an exceedingly rare shotgun by John Dickson of Edinburgh. It is a side by side by side.

It's a sixteen bore weapon, built as a one off for the director of Dickson's in 1882.

God alone knows what it would cost to have this built nowadays. You'd have to be boss of a medium sized oil producing country to afford it.

Dickson guns were (are still) easily the equal of anything produced in London, normally thought of as the home of "best" quality guns; normally sidelock ejector double side by sides by top names like Purdeys, Boss, Holland & Holland, Churchill.

Edinburgh had John Dickson, Glasgow had Alex Martin. Both made slightly different versions of the "Round Action" gun.

However the unique gun illustrated in these half dozen shots does not use the "ordinary Round Action" action. It's a sidelever a bit like some of the best Steven Grant back action sidelocks.

Here is some text from another source on this gun -

"Dickson & Murray's patent No. 2, action patent No. 50, sidelever action with quadruple-bolts engaging two pairs of lumps in parallel, three-trigger round-action non-ejector mechanism, with articulation, gold cocking-indicator pins, automatic safe, each fence carved with a lobate bolster, best foliate-scroll engraving with traces of hardening-colour, well-figured stock (inserts at the head) with ornate border chequering and extension, lever-latch forend with horn tip, the browned fine damascus barrels arranged in line, with twin sunken ribs and central small muzzle-bead
Weight 7lb. 3oz., 14¾in. pull, 28in. barrels, choke approx. cyl. (right), I.C. (mid) and 5/8 (left), 2½in. chambers, Black Powder proof."

I was privileged to be allowed to handle this gun at a game fair perhaps four or five years ago in the show premises of one of the major dealers there. Aside from its rather odd handling and feeling strangely broad above the fore-end, also having it point of balance a bit further forward than many Round Actions, it handled very nicely.

The fit of the stock to the action was up to the usual standard expected of guns of this order, the engraving was a delight.

For some reason it was made a sixteen bore. Possibly the makers advised it could be a little sluggish handling if made up to twelve bore size? As the two calibres are so similar it can't surely have been because of the stature of the user? It's just guesswork really, and completely unimportant anyway.

Okay... a side-by-side-by-side shotgun...

That's not WTF. That's a symphony of metal and wood, a real, ye olde-style, 100% honest-to-FSM GUNGASM.
Do most certainly want, my good sir.

I'd buy one in .410 just to have a side-by-side-by-side. Who cares how practical it is, the looks alone are pure unadulterated win. Maybe one day someone will buy my patents (all two of them) and I'll be able to have one of those custom-built, but until then...

I'm not sure I see how it would even work.

Look at the outermost barrels and how far offset they are. Look where their firing pins would need to be. How would there be a spring and firing pin, let alone a sear, behind them? I am betting that gun is a nonfunctioning piece.

I ever win the lottery, one of the first things I'm doing is ordering a triple barrel 12 gauge shotgun. :D

Now where'd I leave those lottery numbers ?

Here's your lotto numbers:
4 8 15 16 23 42

Well Jeriah my google-fu has failed me and I couldn't find anything about rail mounted bayonets. So Iwent back to the photo and noticed something I didn't before, look on the top rail and follow it to just beyond the front b.u.i.s. That looks like some sort of quick detach mount on the top there. what if the knife is held in place by some sort of offset mount much like the flashlight ones we see out there?

Firing pins don't have to move in line with the bore axis.

I spent days trying to find out. The gun was built up by a bloke on The High Road forums but the thread was a long time gone and all I could deduce was the piece that connected the knife to the ARMS base was custom made.

bingo, they can come in at an angle, or even come in straight and the pin can be bent so all 3 are in the center of the action. one pin is straight, on bend right then straightens, one bends left then straightens
No one has a sense for the dramatic.

Slightly. I've only played with a deactivated Bren Gun, but your FoV is blanked out from about 1 o' clock to 2:30. The Owens should be better, at least from pics it looks as though tha mag would be farther away from your eyes than that of the Bren Gun
Have you ever seen how fast they could run mags through a Bren?

Vertical mags make sense with a lot of weapons especialy LMGs, they are no more constrictive of field of view than using an optic.
