What is a 'Revolver'

A revolver (also called a wheel gun) is a repeating handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers and at least one barrel for firing. Revolvers are a subset of handguns, distinct from pistols, which are defined as handguns with an integral chamber-barrel assembly. The revolver allows the user to fire multiple rounds without reloading .

Any chance of a picture? B Parts interchangeability on many old pre Spanish pistols is poor. They basically put a gun together, then filed away on it until it pretty much worked. The degree of "pretty much" varied with how much they cared about making a good product. If you can find a modern firing pin you can shape to fit, it might not be any more work, and will probably be better steel. This is just my opinion. I am a collector, and not a gunsmith.

The firing pins are easy, but tedious, to make out of any piece of steel of suitable thickness. Some used a separate rebound lever and mainspring, like Colt, others used a single part which combined the rebound lever with the mainspring, a simple-looking lockwork that required close fitting, not a problem in a manual-labor society.

The Federal Reserve reports on revolving and non-revolving credit balances monthly in their G. As of December total revolving credit in the U.

A revolver has established credit terms that allow them to have an open line of credit through either a credit card or line of credit account. Revolving lines of credit can be issued to both consumers and businesses. It is a common type of funding that provides the borrower with a specified level of credit that they can draw from over time. Revolving and non-revolving credit both have advantages.

A revolving credit line allows the borrower to maintain an open credit line up to a specified limit. A non-revolving credit loan issues a one time payout loan balance to a borrower. Both types of loans require the borrower to make monthly payments that include principal and interest. Borrowers typically use these products for ongoing purchases and expenses. Revolving credit cards can also offer the advantage of reward incentives.

Non-revolving credit loans are often obtained by businesses seeking to make significant capital expenditures in new projects.

Consumers will often look to mortgage loans or auto loans for non-revolving financing for specific purchases that they seek to repay over time. May 5, 6.

Assuming your gun is a top-break type like first pic in this string, it was made in period If you want a more exact date, copy the serial number stamped on frame under left grip, which may have a letter prefix, and also state if it's a hammer or hammerless model.
