Regarding the earlier question, wasn't the Rogers and Spencer a .44? I thought we were looking for a .45??
But requires a cylinder conversion to .45 https://www.taylorsfirearms.com/han...ions/rogers-spencer-conversion-cylinders.html
I believe it predates the M&H but works on nearly the exact same principle. But the Galand & Somerville is just about the same time period, so I congratulate you on that thought. It is not an Enfield.So I am now confused.
It is not the twist/ pull Merwin Hulbert because now you say it is Brit.
It is not a Webley because even though that might be described as a twist pull it isn’t really. And you said it isn’t.
It is solid frame, which pretty well precludes a twist pull type design unless it is a copy of the M&H.
The only other weird design I have seen before is the Galan/ Somerville design which was also used by the Russians in another form. But this is open top so it doesn’t fit either.
It can’t be one of the weird Belgian guns because it is British.
The only other one that I can think of that might fit is the Bland Pryse stopping revolver I saw a while ago, but it is break action, not really twist and pull.
Googling is research. Research has to be allowed or we'll get even more stuff pulled out of peoples asses.Why is Den Helder unique in military history?
(for those new to this googling not allowed. Also trying to resurrect this thread)
Correct. French cavalry captured Dutch ships.Googling is research. Research has to be allowed or we'll get even more stuff pulled out of peoples asses.
The only thing I see is that corrected (85) ships were captured in the Anglo-Russian invasion of the Netherlands (Dutch). The ships were frozen in harbor and they were captured by cavalry troops. The other thing is the water between Den Helder and the next piece of land is fast and treacherous. A lot of ships have wrecked there.

This is JFK at the Nevada Test Site inspecting the tower that was used to test nuclear rocket engines in the 1960’s — project Kiwi. The project was later shut down.
What was the tower behind him subsequently used for?
