Credit line
While the early history of this revolver is currently unknown the markings on it indicate it was retailed by Henry Challener of Sydney. The hole in the grip is also an indication that it was used by the Armed Constabulary at some point. One possible explanation is that the revolver was bought by a settler in Sydney, who then took it with him to New Zealand and ended up in the Armed Constabulary.
