It is commonly thought that Samuel Colt invented the revolver in the mid-1800s. Whilst Colt certainly made the weapon popular and practical, the concept of multiple shots delivered by a revolving cylinder goes back much further in time. Here are two versions of the same gun, one authentic, the other a 20th-century copy. The original (top) was made by the London gunmaker J. Annely in the early 1700s, during the reign of Queen Anne.

Developed in Paris and patented in the U.S. in 1862, Alphone Jarre's "breech-bar" system used a horizontal arrangement of pinfire chambers to supply repeating fire, which could be put to use on pistols, rifles, and even cannons. In operation, the bar is pre-loaded with 10 pinfire cartridges, all secured in place with a spring-retained bar, and is then advanced from chamber to chamber left to right by a push arm connected to the double action trigger.

Petersen Pepperbox-This eighteen-shot pepperbox pistol, by Giles Mariette, created what would be widely called the “cluster revolver” in Cheratte, Belgium around 1840. Period accounts of multiple barrels discharging on lesser capacity pepperboxes are common, but just remember that this handgun is the equivalent of three Allen pepperboxes in capacity. This Mariette .32 caliber pepperbox from the Petersen Gallery’s coffee table of curiosa might just have been too much of a good thing.
