A single action revolver. That's as far as I can get and that may not even be right. It's a very interesting revolver, though.

Actually, a double action. Cylinder release looks S&W. Large frame.

See the amount of travel for the trigger? A single action revolver (Colt Peacemaker sort of gun) only has a short distance for trigger to move- it is dropping a hammer that was cocked with the thumb.

A double action (pull trigger, hammer rises and drops) has a much longer movement (to use mechanical advantage- leverage) otherwise trigger pull would be 25 lbs.

Oh. I was looking at the position of the hammer. It seems low to me for a double action. I always thought double action hammers where higher and single action hammers sat a little lower.

I love learning something new. I hope you all don't think I'm incredibly stupid.
