There were a few Revolvers specially made with zero cylinder gap and a simple maxim type silencer. These had to be so closely fitted that cylinder drag jammed them up after only a few shots.
I'd think the original Nagant revolver would be perfect for this. From what I remember, the cylinder rotates and then pushes forward to engage a gas seal around the barrel, and eliminate/reduce the gap between cylinder/barrel.
