GR79-1021-5219, Original British Victorian Officer’s Tranter. Model 1863 Tranter Cartridge Revolver. BLOWOUT
GR79-1021-5219, Original British Victorian Officer’s Tranter. Model 1863 Tranter Cartridge Revolver. .442 Rimfire Revolver Retailed by T. W. MURRAY, CORK. With original owners name inscribed on lever, F. B. Lane, 53rd Regt. I could not find much information about F. B. Lane with a quick search but he may be someone of importance or a nobody. Further research needs to be done. Here is a very good example, purchased by an Officer going overseas to one of the many parts of the empire where a military presence was needed. This is a truly up market example of Tranter’s patent Revolver, with the retailer information engraved on the top of the barrel and officers name on the lever. Mottled gray with crisp action, clear markings, fine checkered grips. Light bumps, dings and use marks, functional in both DA and SA. The bore is bright and rifling is crisp. There is fine surface residue scattered in bore. I soaked and scrubbed the bore a little and the bore cleaned a lot. It looks like it will clean out to a fine condition bore.
Traditionally British Officers, all Gentlemen and from an affluent background, were expected to pay for their own sidearms, both revolver and Sword. Back in the 1600s and early 1700s The Colonel of the Regiment was often expected to provide ALL weapons and Uniforms for the entire Regiment. During Queen Victoria’s “LITTLE WARS” after the Crimean Campaign, all over the empire like India, Canada and South Africa, the Private Purchase system was still in full force for Officers.
