Is the cylinder release on the Korths that thing behind the hammer?

That is correct.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

And that release works also ambidextrous but needs some getting used to.

In several pictures above the Korth revolver appears to have something that looks like a stainless collar at the muzzle. What on earth is that?

After Willi Korth sold his company, the new owners went to sleeved barrels to cut cost. The old Korth facility in Ratzeburg was not a factory by any means but rather a very small custom shop that had outsourced some of the labour, like the bluing which was done by a company in Hamburg, a good 60 miles away.
