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.

this actually made me laugh, I never thought anyone would mistake it for the brand apple today but thats alright we all do those things

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

Maybe because Connors' gun wasn't made by Leonard Da ******* Vinci.
#12 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
People are forgetting that Ezio was inspired by Altaïr's Codex, and had Leonardo da Vinci to build his things.
Connor didn't have such priviliges, he got the firearms the common had invented.

Thats very fast reloading for a firearm of that era.

Maybe Ezio is just better than Connor

But Connor is clearly better than the other assassins.

That's because the 1700's pistol is a regular pistol from that era (that should take at very least 20 seconds to load if you're very skilled with it), where as Ezio's is some kind of magic contraption that shouldn't even exist within said time period.

I always assumed it was because Ezio's used a smalled caliber (.22) while Conner used the guns of the time (which fired quite literal hunks of metal) which would need more material, and preparation to fire.

Another is that Ezio and Leonardo had access to the codex, so maybe he wasn't using primitive technology. Maybe he had actual cartriges that you could just feed in to a firing pin system, but were single fed, similar to how the spy guns you always hear about built into rings and earings and **** worked.

The reason why it was lost before the 1700's could simply be from the assassin guild hoarding it from everyone else. Why Connor didn't get it as an asassin though I'm not sure...

...maybe it eventually became lost even to the assassins.
...maybe it's because Conner and his mentor (the black guy) were filthy non-whites, so they didn't get to play with the good **** .

...we may never know.

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.

User avatar #21 to #1 - justbeinabrony (03/30/2013) [-]
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.
#22 to #1 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
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
User avatar #30 to #22 - wheresthefudge (03/30/2013) [-]
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.

Finally, one person in this thread that has a clue what they are talking about instead of using google.
#133 to #30 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
(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.
User avatar #144 to #133 - wheresthefudge (03/31/2013) [-]
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.
#11 to #1 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #24 to #11 - ihaveakeyboard (03/30/2013) [-]
yeah it does, you have to force the ball down a rifled barrel
User avatar #64 to #24 - lieutenantderp (03/30/2013) [-]
no, the bullet has smooth sides, so it just slides in like a ball.
