Default Revolver Trivia

What was the 4th best-selling brand of American revolvers in the 19th Century (behind Smith & Wesson, Colt, and Remington in that order)?

By many experts’ agreement, it was the most sophisticated revolver of it's time and surprisingly forgotten today.

History of Merwin Hulbert and Company

I had no idea. Never heard of them, but google is a useful tool. So give it to c3 for the win.
