As Old Cop said, many of these older breaktops "freewheel" until the trigger is pulled, then they lock up.

I have an old H&R that will rotate and lock when the trigger is pulled, but if its empty the cylinder will roll back the way it came from when the trigger is released. I thought it was broken but once its loaded it stops that nonsense and works fine. The weight of the rounds or their rims or some other magic happens and it churns out the rounds.

These old timers are fun to shoot and I'm always on the lookout for them.
