You'd have a have fairly good excuse not to be quick on the draw with this gun.

Built by Poland's Ryszard Tobys, this super-sized replica of a Remington 1859 holds the world record for being the world's largest revolver.

Weighing 45 kg (99.2 lb), it has a length of 1.26 m (4 ft 1.5 in) and a height of 40 cm (15.75 in).

Fully working, the gun holds six bullets, each weighing 136 g (4.7 oz), with a calibre of 28 mm (1.1 in).

First test-fired in July 2002, Ryszard shows just what the record-breaking weapon is capable of in the recently filmed clip below.
