If the hidden gun were Apple-influenced it would have...
- cost 7 times as much
- had a reload time of 60 secons

and daVinci would've worn a turtleneck.

I didn't actually "mistake" it for the brand, it was intentional.
But maybe that didn't really get across.

A simple explanation would be that Da Vinci's gun is smoothbore, and the pistol is rifled, making sense in terms of the reloading times and historical period.

Being rifled or smoothbore has nothing to do with it. It all just depends on how its loaded, be it muzzle loaded or some other way, which is completely irrelevant since the first non-muzzle loaded firearms weren't introduced until the 1800s.

are you ******* retarded? That has nothing to do with any sort of reloading times.
It takes a long time to load a black powder rifle/pistol, it being rifled or not has nothing to do with it.

yeah it does, you have to force the ball down a rifled barrel

no, the bullet has smooth sides, so it just slides in like a ball.

Not only does bore type have nothing to do with it, almost all firearms in the 1700s where smoothbore, rifling didn't become "standard" instill a few more years

Bore type has everything to do with it. Rifled barrels were much more precisely made, and would have been almost exactly the diameter of the bullet; a smoothbore, on the other hand, would have been much less precisely made, with the barrel being large enough for the bullet to bounce around a bit in the barrel. This is the reason that rifled barrels are more accurate, the bullet doesn't have room to bounce around, and so it always exits in the same manner (among other reasons).
Anyways, you are somewhat correct. While rifling was invented in the 15th century, it wasn't used often until the 19th century. In the 1700's you would have found many rifled weapons, but they wouldn't have been the average footsoldier's weapon. They'd be sharpshooter or hunters, since early black powders clogged up the rifling too much for the average soldier.

(Different anon than this frustrated individual) I just wanted to say that the whole point of rifling isn't to make the barrel tighter to hug the bullet. While it's true that it's a tighter fit, that isn't the reason why rifling is used for more accuracy. A rifled barrel causes the bullet to rotate around the axis of the barrel. Since it's rotating, it's gyroscopically stabilized, which prevents/resists change in the direction and spin of the bullet. As far as reloading goes, if it's being reloaded down the muzzle, smoothbore would be much quicker.

No argument here. I didn't mean to imply that rifling was developed specifically to make the bullet fit tighter in the barrel; only that the precision was a side-effect of rifling.

Maybe because Connors' gun wasn't made by Leonard Da ******* Vinci.
