Dirty Harry's portable cannon was a .44 Magnum, a bigger weapon than the antique Colt .45 by an order of magnitude. --Old Dickens 02:02, 9 February 2008 (CET)

Fixed the article. Although the argument that the .44 Magnum is a bigger weapon than the antique Colt .45 can be put into question (see Ned Buntline Special) it certainly is far more powerful. I sorted the Dirty Harry reference into a separate space and referred the part concerning the .45 Colt to the Wild West. FlakBait 21:18, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I say 4-5 times the muzzle energy of the modern Colt .45 Revolver is definitely bigger, but I defer to anyone who's been shot with both. --Old Dickens 00:42, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Piecemaker Mark IV

Who originally invented the Piecemaker? The books seem to say it was Detritus (out of a 'renovated siege engine', if memory serves) but if we take the title 'Burleigh & Stronginthearm Piecemake Mark IV' it suggests that the company took Detritus' design and mass-marketed it, which seems unlikely, as there was no previous mention. just a little niggle.--Stanley Howler 18:51, 16 May 2012 (CEST)

I don't know if it's recorded that Detritus thought up the name. Whoever it was probably neglected to copyright it. Old Dickens 05:10, 18 May 2012 (CEST)
