This was the first revolver made under what was called the "Rollin White Patent" in which the cylinder was bored through from end to end to take a cartridge with a rim.

The Model 1, First Issue was a .22 Rimfire Short, single action, 7-shot revolver with a non-fluted cylinder, a 3-3/16" octagonal barrel, and a spur trigger. The barrel was hinged to the forward end of the topstrap and pivoted upwards to load. Frames were usually silver-plated brass. The barrel and cylinder were blued and grips were rosewood. Pearl or ivory grips could be specially ordered.
