English large frame Wilkinson Tranter M.1868 Trade Pattern revolver.
Many such commercial revolvers were purchased by the British War Department as an expediency measure during the Zulu War.
Variant with the swivel type extractor rod and the latter release lever located on the left side of the frame. Single and double action. The octagonal barrel housing displays following markings, "Wilkinson & Son, Pall Mall, London".
English proofs and caliber designation, "450" are stamped on the octagonal barrel. The same proof marks are stamped on the wall of every chamber of the cylinder. Some light engraving on the frame.
Many thanks to "COLLECTIBLEFIREARMS" for the pictures.
