So why didn’t it work? Two Rs: recoil and reloading. Seven half-inch pistol balls produce a lot of recoils – even sailors who hauled ropes and cannon about all day found their shoulders broken by the force. Not good when you’re firing from a precarious “fighting top”; a wooden platform on a warship’s mast. Secondly, it took forever to reload. To put things in perspective, an infantryman of the era was considered good if he could fire three shots a minute from his weapon. Now image having to reload the Nock. Additionally, the thing produced a lot of sparks. Sailors were worried about setting linen sails on fire when firing from the rigging.
