the reload takes only 3 seconds longer than reloading a normal double barrel, and you can use the smokeless black powder substitute from Hodgdon, Triple seven, it is called. So you can see live or clay birds after your shot.

preop,

The first one that comes to mind is a Confederate version of the Sharp's carbine. Black powder was loaded via the breech wrapped in a paper "cartridge" with the .58 miniball paper patched at the front. As the breech block was raised, it would sheer off the twisted paper end and allow the powder to spill inside the chamber. A percussion cap was then placed on the nipple (on the right side) and the hammer would be cocked to full. There's a picture of one on Dixie Gun Works which is available without FFL transfer. Don't confuse this with the Yankee brass cartridge version which does require an FFL Both are ridiculously expensive.

Does that answer your question ?

Can't remember ever seeing a shotgun of similar design.

umm, this may sound ignorant -but why would you want one? double barrels can be found all day used and cheap - and if you really wanted to you could just go muzzle suffer black powder or something?
I mean if I am going to take the time to breech load just use a modern cartridge and fire arm and make it simple.
