1851 Patent Deane Adams & Deane London .400 Calibre Five Shot Double Action Percussion Revolver With Spurless Hammer & Octagonal Barrel. Sn 16466 - 16466
The famous English gunsmith's Deane Adams and Deane had premises at 30 King William Street, London Bridge, London. Until the arrival of Samuel Colt at the Great Exhibition of 1851 with his display of percussion revolvers, British gun makers had largely neglected this style of weapon except for pepperbox revolvers. The arrival of Colt with his American methods of promoting business caused much resentment in the British gun trade. The outcome was a surge in quality revolver design and production by British makers including Deane Adams & Deane. This is an excellent, original, Deane Adams & Deane 5 shot percussion revolver made under licence by the Liege gunmaker Auguste Francotte. The weapon's double action firing mechanism works as it should. It has a 6” octagonal barrel (12” overall). The pistol’s bore is clean with crisp well defined rifling. The barrel has a small blade fore sight & notched plate rear sight. The top of the frame and barrel is crisply marked 'Manfd By A. Francotte Licensed By Deane Adams & Deane London'. It has foliate engraving to the frame & trigger guard. The frame is engraved ‘Adams Patent No.12160’ together with Francotte’s ‘Crown AF’ mark. It's finely chequered walnut grip is in great undamaged condition and it has a steel butt plate with trap. The pistol's metal work is undamaged. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion revolver no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16466
