The Cochran turret revolver is not your typical revolver! The 7-shot, .36 caliber, utilizes a disc shaped cylinder with its chambers oriented outward like the spokes of a wheel. Despite this design earning him some success with cannons in the Ottoman Empire, as a pistol in the U.S. it was competing directly with Samuel Colt and his Paterson revolver.
Today, these simple and well-made turret revolvers are one of the most desirable pieces of firearms curiosa, and they have the pre-auction estimates to prove it.
