European Ten Shot Harmonica Pistol - In Europe, the popularity of the pinfire cartridge, combined with the harmonica concept, resulted in this ten-shot repeater. The rectangular magazine had to be shifted by hand for each shot, but the detachable magazine assembly could be quickly unhinged to clear spent cases and then reloaded with new cartridges. While the maker is unknown, the caliber on this rare item is 9mm. NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
