Revolver's Detachable Buttstock Doubles as a Canteen

revolver

This unusual pistol is a Colt 1851 Navy Revolver. That model was made in massive quantities for two decades and used long afterward. What makes this particular variant unusual is that it comes with a detachable hollow pewter buttstock. There's a plug on the top that you can open to fill it with water.
