A co-worker once showed me an odd .22 revolver, H&R make I think it was. It looked much like the revolver shown in the thread starter.
The revolver I examined was odd because it had a cylinder latch mounted in the hammer. To open the cylinder with hammer down you would press a spring loaded steel plate just under the thumb piece. The shafts conected to the plate passed through the hammer and acted on the spring loaded cylinder pin.
If you look closely at the photo it appears that McQueen's revolver has that same sort of hammer mounted cylinder latch.
In an old interview (available on youtube) Bruce Lee said that Steve McQueen was the only actor he'd met that he would not want to fight in real life. He said he could tell by looking at him that he'd never quit and that he would kill.
