Revolver

From PathfinderWiki
Ytharia Vulane wields two revolvers.

A revolver is an advanced firearm with five or six chambers that spin as the wielder cocks its hammer, aligning the next chamber to the barrel. Each chamber can hold one metal cartridge consisting of a bullet and wad of guncotton. Because the mechanics are so complex, revolvers are prone to misfiring.[1][2]

Variants

Revolvers are an evolution of the pistol and pepperbox.[3]

On Golarion

Revolvers are one of the few firearms on Golarion with a five-round capacity, and is one of the most technologically advanced firearms. It is also the most expensive one-handed firearm, with a base model's price ranging from 2,600 to 4,000 gp on the open market.[1]

On distant worlds

On the distant, technologically advanced planet of Earth, revolvers have a more refined design that make them more reliable and deadlier.[4]
