Transitional Revolver








Kinda' a mixed bag but interesting and a bit scary.



It is a transitional piece between a bar hammer double action pepperbox revolver and standard percussion revolvers.
The design essentially consists of a traditional bar hammer pepperbox with a short cylinder and a barrel threaded on the cylinder pin. Like a pepperbox, there is no cylinder stop which could result in disaster if the gun fired with the cylinder improperly aligned with the barrel.
