10 and 12-shot Walch Navy Model Revolver
« on: May 19, 2010, 05:34:37 PM »
The 12-shot version, caliber .36 by Walch Firearms & Co., New York patent , feb.8, 1859



Superimposed loads with 12 nipples in the rear cylinder.



Has two triggers and two hammers, hammers are cocked together and a right handed guy
should press the front trigger which should fire the fron chanrge and so on.



To make things worse a total lack of rear sight (but brass front sight).
Apparently, less than 200 made between 1859 and 1862.

Messy.


--------------


The second is a 10-shot pocket revolver in .31 caliber
made in 1859 by the New Haven Repeating Arms Company for Walsh, 10 shot superimposed load

Again, no rear sight...and how are you supposed to discriminatingly pull a double trigger? I can't imagine anyone to be dexterous enough to make anything of it.

I was being hypothetical. I live in guncontrolia, far too hard and annoying and expensive to get a gun - any kind of gun - here  :)

Well , i know of some places, that gradually went guncontrolia.
Maybe is a good place to live, despite that fact, or maybe not.
Thing is, you never know, anything can happen, and if you look quick enough, you might be able to take a trip
to wherever you think really home is.

Am getting too honey-sticky soapie shit, huh?  :P

Many a time i packed all my stuff and left for somewhere else.
Seems home wasn't there after all,  8-) but was great anyway, and did worth the toil

only a little idea came to my head:
reloading in battle would be a mess (in time), dont you agree?

I mean, if you're going to bother with reloading in BATTLE...why not use a rifle instead?

granted, however, sometimes i went into battle with some other gun
you know when battle is really thick and no time for reloading among the crazoed enemies...
i guess a 12 shot revolver should do  :wink:
