Antique Revolvers Of All Kinds

Antique Revolvers Of All Kinds
By Tom Metcalf-Jackson 1 years ago 272 Views No comments

A huge selection of antique revolvers available at Henry Krank now.

Early revolvers were one of the most important breakthroughs in firearms history. The problem of how to launch projectiles faster has plagued ranged warfare since the dawn of time; were you to go back to the time of David, you might find two Israelites sitting around discussing how to sling their catapults faster. The problem has always been there, only the device changes.



Percussion revolvers heralded a new era in firearms technology. They may seem laborious to load and use now but were at the forefront of technological development in the early-mid 19th century. The ability to fire five or six shots in quick succession gave the user a distinct advantage over his enemy, who may only be armed with a single shot percussion or flintlock pistol.

Makers such as Colt, Remington and others brought the revolving pistol to the masses and cemented its place in firearms history.


Here at Henry Krank & Co, we have a comprehensive range of antique percussion revolvers, from early transitional revolvers and pepperboxes, popular ‘Old West’ makers, and even later conversions, pinfire and centrefire antique revolvers.
