At first, this short-barreled rifle appears to be a blunderbuss or long rifle. Only on closer inspection does one realize it has five barrels instead of one large barrel. A clockwork crank and rotating clockwork action act as the trigger for this reciprocating long arm. The dwarven reciprocator is a brutal and intimidating weapon designed for use against charging opponents at close range. This weapon has proven ideal for dwarven tunnel delvers as well, since it can fill a hallway with enough lead to poison any pursuer permanently.
Turning the crank once fires a single shot. Winding the clockwork crank around several times fires all five barrels in rapid succession. The dwarven reciprocator fires rifle bullets. Each shot consumes one ounce of gunpowder.
