Repeater Rifle

This weapon can fire six rounds before requiring a reload. Reloading is a full-round action. Repeater rifles are fairly uncommon. A repeater rifle requires two hands to load and fire. One could attempt to fire, but not load, the weapon in one hand at a –4 penalty. Such a character could even fire a repeater rifle in each hand, using the rules for two-weapon fighting as if attacking with two one-handed weapons. The penalty for doing so stacks with the penalty for firing the rifle in one hand. For a cost of 100 gp, the repeater rifle can be refitted with a larger trigger mechanism that allows a character one size bigger than the weapon’s normal size to fire it in one hand at no penalty.
