  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

More unusually, the cylinder was actually flat, with only two chambers:

Pic - Landstad cylinder mid-rotation. Note how it is flat, with only two chambers.

The firing cycle went like this: a round from the magazine would be loaded into the bottom chamber of the cylinder. Pulling the trigger would rotate the cylinder (like a DA revolver), moving the round up to the top, in line with the barrel. The hammer would fall, fire the round, and the recoil energy would cycle the slide assembly at the top rear, extracting and ejecting the empty case.

I’m unsure on a few points, like whether it could be fired single-action as well, and how the mechanism controlled loading of cartridges from the mag into the cylinder. Here are some photos of the Landstad disassembled:

The gun never went into production, because of its dismal performance in trials. But it appears that the inventor kept the prototype gun, and brought it with him when he emigrated to the UK, living in Middlesex until his death in 1955. It was donated to the British NRA and kept in their museum at Bisley until 1977, when it was sold at auction.

The Landstad 1900 differs fundamentally from the more commonly known auto-revolvers like the Webley-Fosbery and Mateba in that it actually ejects cases when empty. The other guns are more accurately described as “self-cocking revolvers”, since they must be loaded and unloaded just like typical revolvers. Not a tremendously important distinction, but a valid one all the same.

Landstad 1900 Autorevolver Disassembly: You may recall seeing my post about the Landstad model 1900 semiauto revolver a while back…
Well, the gun (only one was ever made) was in a British collections for a hundred years, but recently was purchased by a Norwegian collector, and has now returned to its homeland. Thanks to Lars, a reader who happens to be a Norwegian gunsmith, we have a series of photos showing disassembly of this unique firearm. Thanks, Lars! https://www.forgottenweapons.com/landstad-1900-autorevolver-disassembly/

Eon: The Landstad loading system from magazine to “cylinder” closely resembles the British Needham rifle patent, circa 1868. (Not to be confused with the Needham conversion breechloader Ian covered here a while back.)
It fed its “two-chambered” cylinder from a Winchester-type tubular magazine under the barrel, was worked by a lever-action similar to a Bullard, and used cartridges very like the Colt Thuer conversion revolvers, which were fed in from the front and ejected out the front as well.
The Landstad reverses this procedure, because obviously there’s no room for a tubular magazine out front due to the gas piston assembly, and the rimmed Nagant revolver round had to be fed from the rear anyway.
There were also four-shot “Bar” pistols, manually operated, with double over-under barrels that had a cylinder setup like this. Most of them were in .22, .25 ACP, or even .32.
All of which goes back to the old saying, “In engineering, if nobody does it ‘that way’, there’s usually a very good reason.”

Did the thumb bandage have anything to do with the 1897 bolt?

I'm jealous! Would love to have a Webley–Fosbery Self-Cocking Automatic Revolver (aka the Zardoz Zapper).
Fun watching those .455 slugs travel so... slowly down range to the targets. The .455 Webley has such a heavy solid lead bullet (265 grain or 17.2 g) traveling at such relatively low velocity of 650 ft/s (190 m/s), backed with enough burning cordite to bring down even the fiercest Fuzzy-Wuzzy.

Condition is excellent with some thinning to finish and minor toning. Small lanyard ring is present. Est.: $800-$1,200.

Although $1300 for a speedloader is a bit expensive for a bit of tactical gear, the Colonial collector heeds no cautions of fiscal restraint.

Another interesting Webley accessory is the Pritchard-Greener bayonet (this one made about 1916).
The designer of this bayonet was Captain Arthur Pritchard born in 1898 he enlisted into the Royal Berkshire regiment in early 1915. He returned to Britain in 1916, and approached Wilkinson Sword, with the idea for a bayonet for the Webley Mark VI service revolver. His idea was to create a small bayonet, made from the tip of the 1897 Infantry Officer's sword. The problem Wilkinson Sword had at that time was that it was already producing the 1907 bayonet for the SMLE rifle as well as the 1908 Cavalry Trooper's sword. It was seen as quite impractical for them to cut down existing swords not to mention the cost of labour involved in assembling these bayonets. Pritchard's idea was too difficult for them to achieve at this time.

Pritchard's bayonet instead was produced at Greener's, a rival of Wilkinson Sword. Much of their business was reconditioning obsolete weapons. The company had a surplus amount of Model 1874 Gras bayonets, which were used in place of the 1897 sword tip. Although the manufacture of the bayonet was labour intensive the cost was cut by recycling the Gras bayonets. Two patterns of this bayonet were produced, the common gunmetal hilted version and the rarer steel hilted version. Both of the same form, it is likely that change to gunmetal might have been for economic reasons rather than practical reasons. https://collections.royalarmouries.org/first-world-war/type/rac-narrative-138.html

The Pritchard-Greener bayonet was never a standard issue of the British Army. It could be purchased privately, by officers and would probably have been a useful addition to trench raiders, to use in close-quarter combat. Few were made and no evidence exists to prove they were used in the trenches. However, one can imagine the psychological boost it would have provided men leaping into enemy trenches from No-Man's Land. It would also have served as a potentially useful backup weapon, if the revolver misfired or ran out of ammunition.
