Collier 1818 Patent revolving carbine

Designed by Elisha H. Collier in Boston, manufactured c.1818-1827.
.50 caliber, 5-shot self-priming cylinder, flintlock machanism, removable stock.

A carbine version of one of the first -relatively- widely manufactured revolver. Collier patent revolvers are not self-indexing, like the single-action designs of Samuel Colt, but they are self-priming. This system works with powder being released from a hollow frizzen everytime it is flipped down onto the pan, leaving only the hammer to be released for the gun to fire.

Note the fancy frizzen.

You will have to pray to
Saint Arquebus to get more than three discharges!
