Tranter factory in Birmingham was acquired by Kynoch upon William Tranter’s
retirement, and managed for them by Harry Schlund, who was granted British
patents # 9084 in 1885 and # 11900 in 1886 for safety revolvers with enclosed
hammer and dual triggers, the lower for cocking the hammer, the upper to trip
the sear and fire the weapon. This is an example of the first patent type with
the cocking portion of the trigger below the guard. Only around 600 of both
types in all calibers (.380, .450 and .476) were produced before the factory
ceased production. This very early Schlund revolver has a checkered thumb latch
at rear of the frame that releases the top strap to tip the barrel down for
loading and unloading. Complete with matching numbered, bayonet fitting, wire

long. A holster, compartmentalized to hold revolver with a separate tube for the
shoulder stock, has six cartridge loops and a flap closure. This holstered
