Scottish entrepreneur George Kynoch, a manufacturer of ammunition, ventured into firearms manufacturing by leasing the arms factory of William Tranter in 1885 following the latter's retirement. Kynoch’ associate and works manager Henry A. Schlund was granted British patents (9084 in 1885 and 11900 of 1886) for safety revolvers with enclosed hammer and dual triggers.
Calibers were .380, .450 and .476., only around 600 of both types were produced before the factory ceased production.
There were two types of Kynoch revolvers. The Type 1 had the cocking portion of the trigger below the guard. The above pictured revolvers are the Type 2. Pictured below is a Type 1.
