Description

Offered for Sale is this Antique, nice quality, clean example, of what was a very popular design of Percussion Revolver, manufactured during the 1850s. Tranter percussion Revolvers were divided into two types, the Double Trigger, and the later Single Trigger Models. This 2nd Model, [ of three], has a detachable rammer, fitted to the RHS. This type was so successful, it was still popular even after the more “advanced” single trigger came into use. This particular example has a standard 6 inch Octagonal barrel, with a good grade rifled bore. This is built into a solid frame. The frame has inscribed scrolls to the rear and front aspects. Stamped to the top flat of the Frame, is “R.D.Rodda & Co London & Calcutta”. faintly stamped to the RHS lower frame is No1 655. The Cylinder is plain, with 5 chambers, and original intact percussion nipples. There is a classical 2nd Model “Split” safety mechanism to the LHS rear frame. The Double trigger mechanism is in working order. Stamped to the rammer is “Tranter’s Patent”. All the metal work is in vg condition. Now to a smooth blue/plumb patina.The one piece Walnut Grip is finely chequered, with a short rear scrolled metal back strap, and Butt Cap. The Grip is intact and in excellent original condition. This type of revolver was widely used by English Officers during the Crimean War, and Indian Mutiny.
