CSOLD SOLD (12/02) , W.H. Monk Chester, Victorian C1860 Large Frame, Tranter’s Patent 54 Bore Five Shot Double Action Percussion Revolver With Octagonal Barrel Retailed By Lowe Chester With Accessories Including A Tranter Patent Bullet Mould. Sn 15971 - 15971
Until the arrival of Samuel Colt at the Great Exhibition of 1851 with his display of percussion revolvers, British gun makers had largely neglected this style of weapon except for pepperbox revolvers. The arrival of Colt with his American methods of promoting business caused much resentment in the British gun trade. The outcome was a surge in quality revolver design and production by British makers including William Tranter (1816–1890). The Tranter revolver was a double-action cap & ball revolver invented around 1856 by William Tranter. This is an excellent, original, cased Tranter Patent 5 shot revolver. The weapon's double action firing mechanism works as it should in both single & double action. It has a 6” long octagonal barrel (13” overall length ). The bore has well defined rifling and just light staining consistent with age. The barrel has a blade fore sight & notched frame rear sight. The top of the frame is crisply marked by the retailer ‘W. Lowe Chester’ . It has foliate engraving to the frame & trigger guard. The frame is engraved ‘No. 7328T’ and is stamped ‘Tranter’s Patent’. The cylinder has small Victorian black powder proofs. It’s finely chequered walnut grip is in excellent undamaged condition. The pistol's metal work is undamaged with original finish which has even patina. The pistol is contained in its original wood case with hinged lid. The top of the lid is inlaid with a void central brass plate. The case has a brass lock (key absent) and 2 brass carry handles. The case is lined with green felt and has compartments which contain accessories including an empty ‘Joyce & Co London’ labelled percussion cap tin, a brass and steel double bullet mould which is marked ‘Tranter’s No 50 Patent’ cartouche, a brass black powder flask which signed by the manufacturer James Dixon & Sons Sheffield, a wood cleaning rod with ball top and threaded brass cap, a small horse hair brush with wood handle and polished horn ferrule, a steel tool numbered ‘52’ and a small, empty glass jar. The inside of the lid has a ‘W.H. Monk Gunmaker, Chester’ trade label. The price for this cased pistol with original accessories includes UK delivery.
