Very cool.........I am related to the Montigue’s. My 9th great grandfather was the viscount of Montigue. He came to the new world in the 1650’s when his property was confiscated by the parliamentarians after the British Civil war. Others stayed in England. They are from the royal family the Plantagenet’s that took over England in 1066. Great gun that reconfirms my knowledge that humans have always been very clever. Predates Sam Colt’s revolver design by over 100 years.

It's real easy to look at the Puckle Gun and think you turn the crank and the gun fires repeatedly, but it's more like a gigantic revolving shotgun - a well designed piece of kit, actually. As an early CIWS it looks like what I would want to have at that time. Looks like it worked well, but just didn't catch on.
