This breech-loading arm has a fixed chamber closed by a movable breech-block, which rotates about a horizontal axis at 90 degrees to the axis of the barrel, lying below the axis of the barrel and in frontóbeing moved from below by a lever.
This piece is a modification of the well-known Spencer repeating-rifle, containing in an unwieldy stock-butt, six magazine tubes.
