A good candidate may be the Starr Model 1858. This was a ball and cap revolver. With cartridge firearms, Forehand & Wadsworth made a .32 revolver inn what we would today recognize as a "double action: revolver. However, there were earlier "double action only" pepper box pistols.
You are probably thinking of an externally powered machine gun, such as the 25mm autocannon on the M3 Bradley. However, manually powered chain guns, such as the Josselyn Revolver were patented in 1866.
