List of Pistol


Most often seen types of pistol are the single shot, revolver and semi-automatic.

Single shot pistol were mainly seen during the era of flintlock and musket weaponry where the pistol was loaded with a lead ball and fired by a percussion cap. However, as technology improved, so did the single shot pistol. New operating mechanisms were created, and due to this, they are still made today. They are often used to hunt game.

Multi barreled pistol were common during the same time as single shot pistols. As designers looked for ways to increase fire rates, multiple barrels were added to all guns including pistols. Some examples of multi-barreled pistols are Derringers and Duck's foot pistols.

The evolution of handguns between the rotating-barrel and the semi-automatic is defined as a revolver, with a rotating cylinder most often seen with 5 or 6 round capacities. These pistols are very common to be seen in "Old Western" movies (e.g., the Colt Single Action Army) and are known for reliability and accuracy if properly maintained.

A type of revolver requiring the hammer to be drawn back manually to rotate the cylinder and bring a fresh cartridge into battery for each shot. The Colt Paterson Revolver, the Walker Colt, the Colt's Dragoon and the Colt Single Action Army pistol of the American Frontier era are all good examples of this system

A type of revolver that can be used as a single action, but also one in which the pulling of the trigger cocks the hammer, rotates the cylinder, and releases the hammer to strike the cartridge directly in older designs; or to impact a striker which fires the cartridge in newer designs. Examples of the system include the Colt Model of 1917 Substitute Standard Revolver, the Smith & Wesson Model 10 (aka the S&W Military & Police Pistol), and the Smith & Wesson Model 29 made famous by the Dirty Harry films.

A type of revolver in which the pulling of the trigger cocks the hammer, rotates the cylinder to bring a new round into battery, and releases the hammer to strike the cartridge directly in older designs or to impact a striker which fires the cartridge in newer designs. In many cases, such as the Smith & Wesson Ladysmith, the hammer is contained within a shroud and cannot be accessed by the shooter. The advantages to this system are the speed of cycling and simplicity of use, as there is no safety to disengage. The disadvantage of shooting doube-action-only is the much heaver trigger pull required to cycle the action, which results in decreased accuracy on the part of the shooter.

Semi automatic pistol was next development of the pistol. Instead of using multiple barrels which all needed to be reloaded individually, semi-automatic pistols could deliver greater fire rate and only require a few seconds to reload depending on the skill of the shooter. They work by the fired cartridge generating enough kinetic energy to force the bolt back to allow the magazine spring to push another round into the chamber. This also includes certain types of revolvers.

A Machine Pistol is a fully automatic pistol. It utilises the same functions as a semi automatic pistol, similar gas reaction pushed the hammer back continuously until the magazine is emptied. This usually requires the fitting of a longer magazine or drum magazine.
