I wasn't aware of the Shawk and McLanahan revolver. Apparently from the video, Shawk is the same as the Abel Shawk I listed earlier. Samuel Shawk is more like the assembler of the gun. He must have southern roots so I'll have to check the other books once I get home.

Shawk and McLanahan made less than 100 .36 caliber brass frame revolvers in 1858.

I have an old rifle that is stamped 'J.E. Willis', it is said he could have made 16 rifles, I believed he repaired rifle and then stamped them with his name.
