    ~ Model 1851 .50 Cal Dean and Adams Double Action Percussion Revolver ~


    This is a rare piece produced only between 1851 and 1854.

    The revolver uses a percussion cap firing mechanism and has a cylinder with 5 chambers.

    The Adams revolver was the first one with a solid frame, a spurless hammer and a double-action only system.

    This made it possible to fire the gun much more rapidly than contemporary single-action revolvers, such as the Colt, which had to be cocked prior to each shot.

    The revolver has a chequered walnut butt fitted with a steel pommel and a trapdoor for the storage of the percussion caps.

    The trigger-guard is scroll-engraved.

    All the engravings and marks are quite worn except for the Victorian proof mark and the serial number ‘12480R’ on the cylinder.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel length is 7.5 inches (19 cm) and the overall length of the revolver is 13 inches (33 cm).

    It weighs 1.13 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The revolver is in fair condition for its age.

    The engravings are worn and there is some amount of pitting on the metalwork, as seen in the images.

    The trigger cocks and releases well but the indexing is poor.

    The grooves still look fine but some amount of pitting can be seen inside the cylinder.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
