G&A Vault


While working at Winchester, Hugo Borchardt was told to design a double-action revolver to offer the Russian Czar in 1876. He produced two designs: one with a fixed cylinder and thumb extractor and the other with a swing-out cylinder with pin extraction. Only a few swing-out cylinder revolvers remain today and only one of the fixed-cylinder revolvers exists in the Winchester museum.
