U.S.A M1850 Revolving Cylinder Rifle
The revolving cylinder rifle was a cap-and-ball repeating rifle based on the system used so successfully by manufacturers for their pistols of the period. This military rifle was not produced in great numbers (about 9,000 pieces between 1856 and 1864) but it saw service in the Civil War and in the Indian Wars that followed. The gun was produced in .44 and .56 calibers and the revolving cylinder would hold 6 shots for the .44 caliber model and 5 shots in the case of the .56 model. This non-firing version clearly demonstrates the revolving cylinder system.
