Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverUsed£ 1,600
This is a very decent and rare Tranter revolver with British proof marks in 32 lip fire calibre.
Lip fire cartridges were short lived and quickly replaced with the conventional rimfire cartridges that can be recognised today.
The majority of lip fire revolvers were converted by milling the rear of the cylinder to remove the indentations that were necessary to house the "lip" of the lip fire cartridge to house either conventional rim fire cartridges or centre fire cartridges.
