Interesting 19th Century Percussion Revolver

5 charge holes, 10 shot pocket revolver!

They also made a 6-holer that shot 12….so yeah in the mid 19th century they were making “Assault Weapons”. Further you could get off two quick shots with one cocking of the hammer….but a long trigger pull would drop both hammers sequentially….so was this cap-and-ball a high-capacity machine gun???
