This is a Cochran Patent, turret revolver made by C.B. Allen, of Springfield, Massachusetts, in the late 1830s. There were probably less than 150 of this type of revolver produced. The model was patented April 29, 1837. It is an under hammer, single action, seven shot, revolver. The top strap lifts up to remove the turret like cylinder for loading. The arm was impractical because of the possibility of the shooter being shot by a multiple discharge.
