If the revolver does not work, you can always stab them with it
To paraphrase Boris the Blade, these heavy duty mid-19th Century handguns brought a certain reliability to the fight.
Sold at a recent Rock Island Auction for $2,500, these two wheel guns abound with personality.
The top is a .45 caliber copy of a Smith & Wesson top break cartridge revolver with an integral and non-detachable knife. The bottom gun is a nickel finished Deane, Adams & Deane W. Tranter’s patent double trigger percussion revolver with a six-inch octagonal barrel in .44 caliber.
Either way, they look right out of a steampunk graphic novel. Perhaps the new owner will box them for display alongside a monocle and some vintage mustache wax.
