Apache Revolver - 7mm

The Apache revolver is a 19th century multi-purpose pepperbox revolver that incorporates fold-over knuckle duster and a foldout knife, allowing it to be used as either of the three weapons (the trigger also folds up when not in use). The knuckle duster serves as the gun's grip when it is unfolded, and the cylinder and the brass knuckles acts as the handle for the knife when the blade is unfolded. The gun lacks a barrel, giving it an abysmal effective range, but because of its concealed nature, the weapon was popular with some criminal gangs of the time, especially French hoodlums known as Les Apaches, hence the name of the revolver.
