As mentioned by de Judge, that was double action. The trigger cocked it and rotated the cylinder simultaneously then the hammer fell on the same pull of the trigger. You can see the linkage in the picture Twait posted. So double action was about as old as single action for handguns.
Thanks, yes I was trying to figure the 'innards' Didn't realize that double and single action (handgun) were about the same age, sort of.
