Pilot if I am correct the cylinder latch, and crane are on the left side of the revolver. If it is a Colt type the latch releases by being moved rearward. If not then it would be like the Smith & Wesson forward push type.
Oh and it is a nice looking revolver as well. I think it looks neat.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
