steamy.

Cinch up your corset, fluff up your petticoats and polish your brass buttons because we're headed to the range with some steampunk guns! Don't forget your goggles!

Maybe it's me, but when I think "firearms from the Age of Steam", I think Colt Single Action Army and Sharps repeater.

I know - I'm pretty boring.

Imagine an aliens discovering our planet and having this post being the first thing that pops up on their form of google..

LOL- Flights of fantasy at it's finest!

The guns are really interesting, some even look steam powered. The ads on the link have viruses attached. Be careful.

The real question is what optic to mount on your Shagnasty M-101?

Did you send the link to Bobby X?

It's cute but I always think back to Hiram Maxim and real Victorian guns like the Gurkha Bira machine-gun in Martini-Henry .455/577 caliber.
If real, nasty Victorian-chewing tribal hillsmen can make something like *that* up in godforsaken Nepal - a far-flung real outpost of a real Empire, why can't the effete offspring of late 20th Century weenies go to the trouble of at least making it shoot .22LR's?
I'm sorry I find Steampunk and pseudo Victoriana frustrating.

Never-mind me, I just don't do dress-up and fantasy well. Of course you can't have Steamers running around with real ray-guns.

Those are cute, but I have to side with some other folks here and say I prefer the actual weapons of the 19th-century. Function trumps form every time.
