    ~ c1855 Second Model Tranter Double Trigger Revolver with an Adams Patent Frame ~


    The action works perfectly.

    It was retailed by Garden & Son of 200 Piccadilly, London.

    The serial number is 20228Y.

    The case and accessories are not original to the firearm. Please note there is no bullet mold.

    The barrel is marked with the owners initials - C.V.O. of the 66th regiment who were on Indian service at the time.

    William Tranter and Adams were the main competitors to Samuel Colt in Great Britain in the early 1850's. The first competitive revolvers to Colt's revolver in Europe were designed as 'self cocking pistols'. For close quarter combat the ability to shoot double action quickly was a great idea and beat cocking and locking a single action revolver. The downside of double action shooting was lack of accuracy over distance as the fairly heavy trigger pull of the day would tend to influence the point of aim. Tranter's idea was revolutionary, he produced a locking mechanism that allowed the shooter to draw back the hammer and hold it at full cock, take deliberate aim and then fire with a second trigger which had an exceptionally light trigger pull for the day. This is a smart mechanism and advanced for its time.
