A revolver is a type of handgun distinguished from pistols by the presence of a revolving cylindrical chamber that holds cartridges.

History

Revolvers were first invented in the 1800s. Today, they have been widely replaced in military and law enforcement by semi-automatic handguns due to their larger ammo capacity and increased safety, among other features, but are still popular among civilians. Revolvers typically feature a cylinder with 5 or 6 chambers for bullets, although there are models with as many as 10 chambers, depending on their caliber.
