You only need enough barrel to get your powder burned all the way up. Your rifling has your bullet stabilized within the first few inches. Extra length can make you more accurate with iron sights, though. A longer sight radius = easier to shoot precisely.

The length of the barrel actually makes it easier to aim; the added mass gives it a lot more inertia, reducing wobble, and the long sight radius makes it very very easy to hit small targets.

That's pretty nasty considering its both a smoothbore and rattling a ball down that big tube. The few times I got to shoot off some blackpowder guns, its entertaining for all the smoke, fuckhuge recoil and explosions, but realistically even for a 'decent-ish' shot (with conventional modern guns) it was fairly hard for me to hit much beyond 50-60m with them.

Very real, it's from the early 18th century in Germany. The first revolving guns were Snaphaunce, and the cylinder was invented long before Sam Colt; his big innovation was designing a way to rotate the cylinder, cock the hammer, and keep the primer seated on the other chambers without a 30# trigger pull. Cylinder revolvers were pretty impractical up to that point, leading to the inline guns (like the pistol I posted earlier), Pepperboxes, and these "Dockfoot" guns.

Let me introduce you fags to the Kalthoff repeater - 17th century rapid fire wheelflintlock:

>The Kalthoff had two magazines, one for powder and one for balls (some had a third for priming powder).
>A single forward-and-back motion on the trigger guard powered a mechanism that deposited a ball and load of powder in the breech and cocked the gun.
>Within one or two seconds, it was ready to fire again.
>A small carrier took the powder from the magazine to the breech, so there was no risk of an accidental ignition in the reserve.
>Early Kalthoff guns were wheellocks, later they became flintlocks.
>Some carried six shots, one claims in an inscription on its barrel to have thirty.

Obviously, it was a complicated mess to make in pre-mass production days and had a lot of moving parts that could fuck up and if ANY of them did the entire gun became useless.
