The most popular multi-shot pistol prior to the introduction of a reliable and safe revolver, the pepperbox pistol uses rotating barrels for each bullet. Due to such rotation, it takes a longer time for a pepperbox pistol to become fouled. With the advent of the revolver the pepperbox still remains popular due to its double-action firing method, but the invention of the double-action revolver ultimately renders the pepperbox moot.
