In [[firearm]]s, the '''chamber''' is the portion of the [[Gun barrel|barrel]] or firing [[Cylinder (firearms)|cylinder]] in which the [[Cartridge (firearms)|cartridge]] is inserted prior to being fired. [[Rifle]]s and [[pistol]]s generally have a single chamber in their barrels, while [[revolver]]s have multiple chambers in their cylinders and no chamber in their barrel. Thus rifles and pistols can be fired even with a detached [[Magazine (firearms)|magazine]], while a revolver cannot be fired with its cylinder [[Cylinder (firearms)#Swing out cylinder|swung out]].
