Howdy!

No real way of knowing whether it made it to America... but a number of British C & B revolvers made their way over during the Civil War as well as for sale.

Here is an ugly one, a Tranter. Part of a family of kinda/sorta similar revolvers made by Adams/Beaumont/Deane/Tranter/Kerr. All we have is the repro Starr revolvers.

Some of the folks who liked Tranters.... Alan Pinkerton, JEB Stuart, Richard Gatling, and Sherlock Holmes. Also, in movies...Lord John Clayton (played by Paul Geoffrey) in the 1984 "Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan."
