  1. “…up to 800 rounds per minute(depending on how fast you can crank the handle.)”

    With 45-70 wouldn’t it be more correct to say “…depending on how fast you can AFFORD to crank the handle”? :-)

    I have no idea what 45-70 costs but it’s probably more than ‘modern’ calibres.

    Looks fantastic, do they have it in 22LR? (more affordable fun).
