Description

This 120 bore "Pepper Box" revolver is in excellent condition with good timing and strong action.

Each of the 2.5" barrels is proof marked and the revolver is graced with foliate engraving on the frame, trigger guard, hammer and butt. The hammer is neatly finished with an escalloped head.

Thomas Conway was an English Gunsmith with premises in Manchester at 179 Chapel Street, 3 Market Street & 43 Blackfriars Street, Deansgate between 1803-1852) This revolver was manufactured circa 1845 slightly predating Colt's emergence in the UK market with his new patented revolver.

The revolver is contained in a refinished Victorian Case with a contemporary powder flask, powder measure and cleaning rod.

The quality of workmanship of this revolver is excellent and an interesting artefact of a transitional period in English gun making.
