The ingenuity that enabled various gun manufacturers to compete against the Smith and Wesson patent on the bored-through cylinder spawned a fascinating class of revolvers that circumvented that restriction during its seventeen year period of existence. Some just chose to simply ignore the patent, often with disastrous legal consequences. This monograph chronicles that story and provides a comprehensive gallery of those weapons and the often unique cartridges that they used.
