    Great!

    How fast can the rifle shoot 12 bullets?
    Did each bullet hit the same enemy or it is possible to shoot
    12 enemies in a row?

    Wonderful rifle.

    Definitely it’s hard to believe this rifle is not some sci-fi movie accessory. It reminds me of flute or saxophon.

    Nice find, Mope.

    Seems something taken from a steampunk styled game.
