Wonder if you could make one with a revolver action and single rifled barrel like an Old Army.

Yeah,mostly what Ive seen is old school type stuff,funny no one seems to make a "modern" double barrel muzzleloader.


Seems like that would be an oxymoron

Legal, and way too outdated and heavy for my personal taste!

I have a Pendersoli Kodiak side-by-side in 58 caliber. It has double, flip-up in-line sights (so you can set one for the left barrel and one for the right). The gun uses double side-hammers, one for each barrel (although they are arranged so the cap fires directly into the powder chamber instead of having to travel through an angled "pipe" like most side-hammers, hence it is virtually "in-line").

Although the over-all weight of the gun is high, that never really bothered me that much. It was the recoil that bothered me! Talk about breaking into a cold sweat just thinking of touching that cannon off! Of course, the recoil problem was my fault. I shot hand-poured lead 620 grn Civil War Minnie balls in front of 120 grns of FFg. With just a brass butt-plate on the stock, the recoil was EXTREME.

In fact, that's why I wussed out and stopped using it. A nice 50 inline is a sweet-shooter in comparison!

Here's an old picture of the gun:

BSK,

So do you have to flip a rear sight own and the other up after the 1st shot? It looks to only have 1 front sight so seems that you could only have 1 rear sight available at a time. If that's the case, you couldn't get two instant shots like yau can with a classic African double cartridge rifle.

Yep, 58 caliber full-bore bullets are going to give some serious recoil!

That is exactly right. You have one rear blade flipped up and the other down (one front post). After shooting one barrel, you flip that blade down and the other up (one is about a half inch in front of the other). For an open-sighted gun, it is amazingly accurate. I could shoot 3-inch groups at 100 yards. Anything beyond that distance and those giant Minnie balls dropped like a rock though.
