This is really a very interesting pistol certainly made as a one off in the style of the first wooden made revolver prototypes of Samuel Colt. I have never seen such a system before. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree, a one and only prototype; certainly (a little ) unsafe to fire ... but a rather valuable piece in collecting terms. Congrats for its finding .
