American Free Enterprise System.
You want one, I say start it out in the street.  It shows some traffic, the Town Fathers will quickly direct you to a vacant lot where you can put up a real building.

I'd be interested in learning about Walch.

Primarily, because I never heard of one.
You got a Walch? One you can take pix of and post and discuss? If so, I'd be happy to set you up.

Why should there be. They're pretty rare. Only 4,700 made all told and only 200 of those were 12 shot .36 caliber. The rest were 3,000 iron frame .31's and 1,500 brass frame 31's.

There's also no forum for Joslyn, Freeman, Manhattan and a host of other revolvers.

I figured this forum had a section for every revolver/make except this one, so I asked hahaha

There's not enough room to list every revolver made, especially if you get into foreign guns. Maybe we need a forum titled "other". (^h

Don't hold your breath. You could probably buy a working original for what a repro would cost.

Looks like a cocking lever-ring below the trigger?
Does the shootist pull both at the same time, or first the ring, then the trigger?

Nope!

A Lemat costs right at 1000. If somebody tooled up to make a Savage you can bet they would run 1,500 to start out with. Gunbroker is not the best place to get a deal on hard to find stuff.

The ring cocks the hammer and turns the cylinder. The trigger fires it.

Classanr

The ring trigger when pulled back moves the cylinder back from where it seals against the barrel, rotates the cylinder, and cocks the hammer. when the ring trigger is moved back forward the cylinder is snugged up against the barrel to form a gas seal. The upper trigger is then used to fire the gun.
