This type of Spiller & Burr revolver is based on the Whitney revolver. Spiller & Burr had to use brass for the frame. They used iron which they twisted in an ingenious process, for the cylinder. the Whitney’s cylinder had been steel. They were only able to produce about 1,500 revolvers while Whitney produced over 30,000 during the war.
