Cased, Victorian C1850's Deane Adams & Deane London Bridge, 54 Bore Five Shot Double Action Percussion Revolver With Spurless Hammer & Octagonal Barrel With Accessories Including An Adams Marked Bullet Mould. Sn 15969 - 15969
The famous English gunsmith's Deane Adams and Deane had premises at 30 King William Street, London Bridge, London in 1852. 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, cased, Deane Adams & Deane 5 shot percussion revolver. The weapon's double action only firing mechanism works as it should. It has a 6 ½” octagonal barrel (12 ½” overall). The bore has well defined rifling and just light staining consistent with age. The barrel has a blade fore sight & notched plate rear sight. The top of the frame and top barrel flat are crisply marked 'Deane Adams & Deane 30 King William Street, London Bridge' . It has foliate engraving to the frame & trigger guard. The frame is engraved ‘Adams Patent’ and ‘No. 8779.R’. The cylinder and barrel have Victorian black powder proof and is marked with matching number ‘8779.R’. It’s finely chequered walnut grip is in excellent undamaged condition. The pistol's metal work is undamaged with original finish. The pistol is contained in its original wood case with hinged lid. The top of the lid is inlaid with a void central brass roundel. The case has a brass lock (key absent). The case is lined with green felt and has compartments which contain accessories including an empty ‘Joyce & Co London’ labelled percussion cap tin, a brass and steel double bullet mould which is marked ‘54’ (bore) and with Adams patent cartouche, a copper and brass black powder flask which signed by the manufacturer Dixon (illustrated), a wood cleaning rod with ball top and threaded brass cap.

This revolver features a unique heart shaped trigger guard with round cocking lever, off-set hammer, six-shot cylinder, 7” octagon rifled barrel and hinged loading lever. The Savage Navy had a unique way of cocking and firing the gun. The gun is cocked by using your middle finger to draw back the figure 8 lever to cock the hammer and rotate the cylinder. The figure of 8 lever is then released forward and the separate trigger is pulled to fire the gun. The Savage Navy revolvers were used by both Union & Confederate Officers during the Civil War. The 7 inch rifled barrel has sharp rifling and is fitted with a brass foresight bead. The action is crisp and the gun cocks and dry fires correctly. At some stage during its life this pistol has been professionally restored to a very high standard. As a consequence of that there are no visible maker's marks on the frame.
