When this revolver was originally retailed it would have been purchased by a "gentleman" of considerable wealth and standing within the community. As a private purchase, they were used by British officers during the Crimean War (1853 to 1856).

Chambered in an obsolete calibre it can be owned live without any form of license. It has a full working action and can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.
