In the original, it was a large-caliber percussion rifle for outdoor use. It underwent a conversion to a 5mm peace shell with gunpowderless shells. All the throwing power came from the fuse. Such a weapon was used to shoot a target in windless rooms at a distance of up to several meters. The usable barrel is only the last 20 cm. The rifle is loaded from the bottom through a specially made hole.
