New Army and Navy Mechanics

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:
