how do you select what chamber to fire or they all go off together?

From Wiki:
"it uses the ratcheting/rotating striker, which is completely internal, to fire each chamber in sequence"

You're kind of a derringer guy, arent ya CSA? :)

Give us a range report please after you shoot it if you'd be so kind. I've handled them many years ago when they were new and I worked a gun shop but I've not fired one. They're definitely unique and an interesting firearm design although I found it a bit unwieldly.

Have you fired one before? I had one when they 1st came out, lots of fun and an interesting little pistol but a heavy as heck pull. Not quite as bad as the High Standards.

Remington 125 JHPs out to be quite the flash producers.

My dad had one. .357 Magnums out of it will definitely clear the sinuses.

Shot one years ago, thinking it might be a good off-duty pistol. The hard-as-rocks trigger pull and 4 independent POIs discouraged that. It is an unusual find these days, though - congratulations!

You'd be kinda stupid to carry it, it's more of a collectors/conversation piece. The worst trigger I've ever pulled. Still glad I own one, though.

Interesting video. Very simple operation, revolver w/o a cylinder.

The basic design has been around for over 130 years. I have a Uburti copy of a Sharps in .22short which operates on the same principle. My Mossberg Brownie is a 90ish tear old example of the same thing.

If it's the seller I'm thinking about, he's a great guy. I scored an unfired AMT Back-up (Irwindale made) in .45 acp with box from him about 6 months ago.

COP's are cool guns.

Definately a cool seller! If it wasn't for gas prices, I would have driven my Power Wagon up just because it's a mopar. I took my beater Surbaru instead. BTW, the last handgun I bought was from you, for less than $100. This one was almost 10 times more. I can't make heads or tales of my likes, dislikes and buying habits.

Yep, it was here for a couple weeks.

the reason it was here for so long was because $850 for a COP was too much.

I haven't seen one cheaper than that in years.

i remember, when those came out, and "gun tests" magazine, "tested" it out, and had problems, with their specimen. as i recall, it had ejection problems, in one of the chambers.

Me too. I think that means we are not collectors, we are accumulators!

When I worked for Knights Armament we modified one (actually machined a new upper) to shoot a flechette with a sabot piston pushing it. The piston never left the gun so it contained 100% of the gas and was completely silent, acording to ATF it was not considered to be a silenced weapon but I think they changed their mind on it later.

We were working on a design to build the entire gun and projectiles out of plastic and composites for government use the only metal would be the primer.

Man why didi I sell guns for the old prices back in the day... lol Last one I sold was for around $300 ...
