    ]Legend of Ben Hall

    I just saw a great movie last night on Rubi, I believe (Roku channels). Legend of Ben Hall is a movie about Ben Hall, John Gilbert and John Dunn, the first declared outlaws in New South Wales Australia in the early/mid-1860's. Guy who played Gilbert was an awesome character. Several government officials had Colt repeater rifles that just looked beautiful. Hall also had revolvers he mentioned were the best quality made. Anyone, please let me know the manufacturer and model. Couldn't make out what Hall said after multiple rewinds.

    Thanks, Eric.

    I'll search online for the tranter and watch the movie again to take plenty of photos of the weapons.

    Tranter revolver indeed - captured patent stamps and he stated Tranters were hand made.
