Pietta: Starr 1858 Double Action .44
The Starr revolver was a revolutionary design well ahead of its time. Named after its inventor, Ebanezer Townsend Starr, the Starr percussion revolver featured a unique trigger which, unlike the double action revolvers designed much later, only served to rotate the cylinder and cock the hammer. Once this was accomplished, the trigger pressed a second actuator located at the rear of the trigger guard – thereby cocking and firing the revolver with a single pull of the trigger.
