Early revolvers were one of the most important breakthroughs in firearms history.

The problem of how to launch projectiles faster has plagued ranged warfare since the dawn of time; were you to go back to the time of David, you might find two Israelites sitting around discussing how to sling their catapults faster. The problem has always been there, only the device changes.

Antique Revolvers

Percussion revolvers heralded a new era in firearms technology. They may seem laborious to load and use now, but they were at the forefront of technological development in the early-mid 19th century. The ability to fire five or six shots in quick succession gave the user a distinct advantage over his enemy, who may only be armed with a single shot percussion or flintlock pistol.

Makers such as Colt, Remington, and others brought the revolving pistol to the masses and cemented its place in firearms history.
