Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Walch Navy .36 - twelve shot six-shooter

I was studying some Louis L'Amour this morning ( Lando - only takes a few hours to read one of his novels) and the hero had a 12 shot Walch Navy revolver in .36 caliber.

I just could not visualize the two-trigger, two hammer blackpowder revolver, so had to look it up -- interesting firearm, to say the least.

That is interesting.I had thought the Lemat was the only revolver that had more then 6 shots.

Well now we know where Glunk got their idea for triggers.

You can't see the other hammer in the pics, but it has two hammers and triggers. I just can't visualize how it works.

It had two triggers and two hammers. You'd load each chamber with two balls and charges, one atop the other for a total of 12 loads in six chambers. The nipples were staggered in two concentric rings, one ring per hammer/trigger. A channel in the cylinder would direct the outer cap's discharge to the forward charge. The idea was that the ball behind the forward charge would block the rear charge from igniting.

Apparently, with the revolver fully loaded, cocking the hammer and pulling the front trigger allowed the hammer to fall firing the front loading of each chamber.
once exhausted on the front loading, the trigger was pulled further rearward, engaging the second trigger, allowing the hammer to hit the cap on the second loading of the chamber.

Believe it or not, the idea of stacked charges is being used today. The ignition is electrical and the company is called Metal Storm.

Relying on a ball to seal would be questionable IMO

Maybe they used bacon grease

there were a lot of tinkering done before and still today. it is surprising how many ideas get tried then forgotten only to be used again a few year latter.

That sounds very much like an idea whose time has not come to me. I'll stick with 6 and a speed loader.
