    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 1632. A rare Australian double trigger Tranter's patent .38 cal Percussion Revolver. Circa 1855. Retailed by H. & J. Vincent. 59 Collins St, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, circa 1861-1862. The octagonal barrel approx 4 inches in length. Finely chequered brown grips. The rammer stamped W. Tranters Patent. The retailers name J. H. VINCENT MELBOURNE engraved on the top strap. Decorative engraving to the frame and cylinder which retains most of it's original finish. Tranter revolvers were favoured by those who appreciated reliable well made arms whichever side of the law they happened to be on. In Australia Tranter revolvers are associated with some of the most well known names in Australian folklore including the bushranger (outlaw) Ben Hall. An incident involving Ben Hall occurred on 3rd October 1863. Ben Hall and the four members of his gang went to the town of Bathurst in New South Wales and visited the gunshop of Bartolomeo Pedrotta. Pedrotta recognised who his visiting customers were and was in fear for his life. Ben Hall’s gang demanded to see his stock of revolvers. All Bartolomeo Pedrotta had to show them were a new shipment of Colts. The Hall gang refused those saying the Tranters they already had were the best. But even in Australia Tranter revolvers were not solely the pride and joy of the lawless, but also of the police and those on the right side of the law. Just over a year after the Hall gang had visited the Pedrotta gunshop the gang attempted to rob William Macleay the member of parliament for Murrumbidgee. William Macleay was armed with both a Tranter revolver and a Tranter revolving carbine with which he was able to persuade the Hall gang to depart just as rapidly as they were able. Action in working order. Small patch of rust to the top strap, otherwise in very good condition retaining much original finish. (please see photos). These unique revolvers are also known to have been carried by soldiers of the South during the American Civil War. Circa 1861-1865. Overall length approx 10 inches. Ref 1632. This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
