The rough riders dynamite gun

Post by King carp »

Looking through a 1922 bannermans catalog i came across this dynamite gun. along with their Krags, sidearms and colt potato digger machine guns Teddy and the boys had one of these. It fired a finned shell full of dynamite with compressed air. After some research it seems it had mixed reviews. While effective it seemed to be fragile and prone to breaking down. One of these was also captured from the cubans after the fighting there.
