Someone made/makes a variation of the COP in .45ACP.

In the mid/late 1800s a number of multi (more than two) barrel handguns were made, with the Sharps four barrel single action spur trigger most common. The Sharps has been replicated by several manufacturers in the 20th century.

In the early part of the 20th century, Mossberg made its "Brownie" a DAO four barrel .22LR. It has been replicated a number of times in Europe and the USA, and in fact the COP may be based on it.
