The story that Martin told was that it took three generations to produce the original order for the Army, the guns were that labor intensive to produce. The air reservoir was soldered brass and took 3000 pump stokes to charge! The reservoirs were also prone to burst occasionally, usually killing whomever was unfortunate enough to be doing the pumping!
