Revolver ancestor

The oldest known revolver, here it is. Gone back to 1650, unknown craftsman, it is now with the museum of Tower in London.

Completely out of brass, 6 blows, and when the hammer is armed, the cylinder turns and is blocked when the following room is alignedů as in the patent of Colt gone back to 1835.

Formal proof that Colt did not invent the revolver.
