Many consider the Tranter to the the most precise best over all made Percussion revolvers ever made. Too bad that the Replica makers do not make any working copies of the British Percussion Revolvers.

Greetings

I agree especially in England where I understand many use percussion revolvers for self defense you think the Tranter would be a good seller. Plus a lot of them were imported by the Confederacy during the Civil War so you think they would find a good market here as well. Just the thing for a Confederate officer impression.

I wonder, based on the amount of hand work the originals had, if they are harder to produce?

From what I gather The UK is very Tolitarian   and people who lawfully own Percussion revolver would have lots of legal problems if they defend themselves. The UK is far from what is said in the Magna Cartera.
