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.12


Revolvers are an evolution of the pistol and pepperbox.3

On Golarion

The revolver is 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, such as the Nagant M1895, have a more refined design that makes them deadlier and more reliable.4
