    The screw heads are moderately distressed but serviceable. Overall, this handgun rates in about Very Good condition as an antique. Mechanics: The action functions correctly in when fired as a double action, but the hammer will not lock back into the full cock position when cocked by the lower trigger. There is a hammer block safety on the left side of the frame, which can be pushed in to prevent the hammer from contacting the caps. When the hammer is cocked, the safety springs out of the way.

    The loading lever is attached to a post and can be easily removed when rotated into the correct position. The loading lever pivots upward to press the ball into the cylinder. It is held in place by a spring loaded clasp. We did not fire this handgun.

The accessories are in Fine condition. Also in the box is a powder flask with an adjustable nozzle calibrated in drams. The flask does not appear to be original because of the fit to the case. Handling marks are present on the brass and copper surfaces of flask including a large mar on the copper and finish thinning on the seam.

    The flask functions properly and is in Good condition. A cache of approximately 30 heavily oxidized. Minnie balls resides in a covered compartment to the right of the box. The cover is adorned with an imprinted boarder and the black plastic knob is broken. A 2nd Model was introduced in with minor improvements such as a detachable loading lever, still on the original Adams frame. Tranter soon moved the 2nd Model pistols onto his own frame design.

    The Tranter double trigger, double action mechanism was an interesting innovation. The bottom trigger cocked the hammer and rotated the cylinder, and the gun was fired by a light touch of the top trigger. Pulling both triggers enabled the gun to be fired in one motion as a double action revolver. As nifty as the idea was at the time, the two trigger design was inconvenient and in July Tranter patented a single trigger, double action pistol, some of which found their way to Confederate soldiers during the Civil War and notably into the employ of Allan Pinkerton, founder of the Pinkerton Detective Agency.

    The pistol comes in a black lacquered case with custom fit compartments and includes tools as well a cache of heavily oxidized Minnie balls. The case is in Good condition, the tools are in Fine condition and the pistol itself is in Very good condition.

    This is a unique and interesting piece of the evolution of the repeating pistol. RARE Cased.

    Various British gunmakers made revolvers for this cartridge including Webley, the Bland-Pryse, and Tranter. To ensure the cartridge case was fully supported to avoid this fault the Tranter design incorporates a removable backing plate that fits at the rear of the cylinder. In this picture the removable backing plate that mounts to the rear of the cylinder can be clearly seen.

    Unloading required the removal of the cylinder and backing plate so it was a slow and fiddly operation. The use of a removable backing plate made the process of reloading the Tranter. First the cylinder had to be removed from the revolver and then the backing plate from the cylinder, and then the cartridge cases were pushed out one-by-one before new cartridges could be loaded, the backing plate reassembled onto the cylinder, and the whole assembly fitted back into the revolver.
