Twice the chance to fire properly?
I *might* be wrong but I'm pretty sure they are a matched set of dueling pistols. A "Civilized Weapon" for a more civilized era Obi-Wan Kenobi
what micharl said makes sense, better chance at ignition
You load two balls and powder, looks like the left hammer fires the first round.
No ramrod and only one trigger too. Odd got me stumped.
that was me stumped btw...
To fancy for my safe
Could be set up roman candle style. 2 loads on top of each other. First hammer fires the front load, second fires the one in back. Like a 19th century "Metalstorm".
Second flint/powder chamber so all you have to do is ram the second ball down the barrel for aa quicker second shot?
Lindsay double shot pistol. There was also a musket. Two stacked loads as guessed.
Sounds dangerous... might need a bunch of grease and a second patch to be sure the front shot didn't touch off the rear.... if it does.... will the barrel survive?
If it is double stacked in on tube wouldn't that present a huge cook off problem?
Seems that it worked most of the time. I am sure you had many cookoffs.
There was a revolver with a similar action, the WalshSee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf10DTtvirg
My 2c - early experiment on two shot single barrel pistol. insert powder, wad and bullet, second wad, charge, wad and bullet.First hammer fall sends the fire to the forward "chamber" zone and the second to the rear :"chamber". zone Might work, might not if any spark reaches back from front.

Possibly an attempt to make an ambidextrous pistol? Use either hammer based on handedness?
When you absolutely require ignition
