Design in 19th Century Indian, this “Novelty weapon” harkened back to the Age of Armor. Two Flintlock .69 caliber pistols were incorporated into an extended piece of molded arm armored plate. Held in place by leather straps, the triggers were place retracted into the upper portion of the wrist of the armor (where the firer's finger could reach). The obvious drawback was the rigid construction allowed for no natural arm or hand movements. The weapon was also known to have been used in Turkey as well.
