Can someone explain which notches in the cylinder of the New Army and Navy revolvers did what and when?
I'm guessing that the rear notches were engaged by a projection on the trigger only when the trigger was to the rear, like a Webley Mk VI. But when did the bolt rise to engage the front notches? Trigger forward only? While trigger was moving rearward?
Also, did these double-notch left-wheelers have the "vault" lockup between the hand and the notches like the later right-wheelers?
I used to own a left-wheeler but never paid any attention to how it worked. :bang_wall:
