A cowboy's dream

a unique gun - Henry Josselyn's 20 shot revolver.
scanned from an old Am Heritage.

A 20 shot revolver. I found Henry Josselyn's patent online issued Jan 1866.

Surprisingly, the patent doesn't mention that, once you ran out of ammo, you could swing it at someone like a chain.

There might be some issues fitting it in a holster.

It turns out not to be the only high capacity revolver. See here and here.
