How does the Reloading Weapon Artificer Infusion affect Matt Mercer’s Gunslinger firearms?

I am creating an artificer/fighter with the gunslinger multi-class and a question has been raised. If I infuse a gun with the Repeating Weapon artificer infusion, how does that affect the reloading property of the gun?

Repeating Shot

Item: A simple or martial weapon with the ammunition property (requires attunement)

This magic weapon grants a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it when it’s used to make a ranged attack, and it ignores the loading property if it has it.

The weapon requires no ammunition; it magically produces one piece of ammunition each time you make a ranged attack with it, unless you manually load it. The ammunition produced by the weapon vanishes the instant after the it hits or misses a target.

And firearms do have the ammunition property.


The weapon can be fired a number of times equal to its Reload score before you must spend 1 attack or 1 action to reload. You must have one free hand to reload a firearm.

I am unsure of the how the rules should be interpreted, but wouldn’t the repeating weapon cause the gun to never need to reload?

I’m Looking for better Armour for my Kasatha Gunslinger [closed]

I’ve been playing a campaign with some friends and I have a nearly reached level 7 with my Kasatha Gunslinger(Pistolero) and Bard(Juggler) combo. I recently realised that I have a dex mod of +6 and so my Armour (Studded Leather) won’t really help me as much seeing as it has a maximum Dex bonus of +5. I’m looking for new Armour to replace my studded leather and am not sure what to get. Price range of up to about 20K gp Thanks in advance.
