Product Information

This is a rare plated Tranter Third model .54 Bore double action percussion revolver. This actual revolver, serial number 18124T appears in the book " William Tranter, Birmingham 1849 -1890 by Wolfgang Berk. William Tranter is considered to be one of the most important manufactures of firearms during the second half of the 19th century, with his designs and patents being used by countless other gun manufactures. In comparision to the more traditional blued finish, chrome plated Tranter revolvers are far less common and were often undertaken as special orders by the factory at the request of private individuals. The original recipient of this revolver would have been a gentleman of considerable wealth.

This historic revolver can be owned live without any form of license. It has a full working action and can be cocked, stripped and dry fired. The bore is very good order and the action works smoothly indexing after each cycle.

It is not deactivated in any way and is being sold as a collectors piece only.
