WARNING!click here for important Safety Information
The revolving cylinder rifle was a cap-and-ball repeating rifle based on the system used so sucessfully for their pistols of the period. This military rifle was not produced in great numbers (about 9,00 pieces between 1856 and 1864) but it saw service in the Civil War and in the Indian Wars that followed. Used by troops, particularly Union troops in The American Civil War, once loaded, its rate of fire was considerably faster than that of muzzle loaders. The gun was produced in .44 and .56 calibers and the revolving cylinder would hold 6 cartridges for the .44 caliber model and 5 shots in the case of the .56 model.
