William Tranter was one of Robert Adams’ most important frame suppliers. Tranter also patented and manufactured double-action revolvers based on the Adams frame. The 1853 model had a double trigger. Pressure on the longer trigger cocked the gun and rotated the chamber, while pressing on the shorter trigger released the hammer and fired the weapon. This gun, therefore, had two methods (actions) of firing. Pulling both triggers together would cock and fire in one motion – very useful for close range firing. For accurate longer range shooting, the hammer is cocked with the longer trigger, and then after taking aim, slight pressure on the shorter trigger releases the hammer.
Hi, I’m Rob, otherwise known as VBBSMYT.
I create the animations on my iMac using Cinema 4D, which I find very intuitive, and allows me to add smoke and flames, and then send the model to my trusty Render farm.
I make my models as accurate as possible through reference books and particularly good drawings. You may have seen my animations of early torpedoes and machine guns on YouTube. I enjoy finding out how things work and it has been fascinating to track the development from the late Victorian period up to World War 1.
