Crimean War Issue, WD Beaumont Adams Percussion Revolver, c.1853
A genuine Ordnance contract 54 bore Beaumont Adams percussion revolver, made and signed by the London Armoury Company. Only around 5000 of these revolvers were made by the LAC, with the majority of them converted to take the .442 centre fire cartridge. So, to find one that has not been adapted or refurbished, is rare.
With about 75% of its original finish remaining, this Beaumont Adams revolver has crisp WD and broad arrow marks, as well as a crown inspector's stamp on the butt. Basically this revolver is in a very good state of preservation for an ordnance issue weapon. Tight lock up and smooth indexing, working in both single and double action and all springs are strong. Even the bore, nipples and chambers show little sign of actual use and the grips are undamaged - complete with the military specified lanyard hole. All inscriptions and proof stamps are visible, with some overall service and storage wear being evident.
It is of course unusual to find any British martially marked revolvers from this period, as officers were expected to purchase their own. However, it was the NCO's that were supplied with these, brought in for the Crimean War.
Difficult to improve upon.
