Gilles Mariette, a Nineteenth Century Belgian gunmaker, designed pepperbox pistols. Working from the principle that you can never have too much ammunition, he designed handguns with increasingly large numbers of barrels. This double action percussion cap model contained 18, but Mariette appears to have gone as high as 24.
