Lot 3265: A Cochran turret revolver
27 October 2016
Munich, Bavaria, GermanyLive Auction
Description: Cal. .40 percussion, no number. Octagonal then round barrel, length 5", total length 307 mm. Seven-shot radial cylinder ("turret"), manual ignition, under hammer, single action. Version with percussion cap nipples inserted into the reinforced cylinder. No inscriptions. Constructed and patented by J.W. Cochran (1837), manufactured by C.B. Allen, Springfield, Massachusetts. Complete, original patination. Smooth walnut grip. The term "turret" refers to the resemblance to the flat, round gun turrets of older battle ships and coastal artillery. In the early years, this type of handgun competed with Colt revolvers, but the radially arranged chambers made the use dangerous due to the increased risk of row ignition. Unusual, rare collector's piece in very good condition. Erlaubnispflichtig
