Cased Belgian Adams Patent Percussion Revolver

Estimate
n. a.
Price realised:
US$2,350
Beschreibung:

120-bore (.33 caliber), 4.5" octagonal barrel, s/n 11206. Blued finish, checkered walnut grips. Belgian made copy of an M-1854 Beaumont Adams with the Kerr style loading lever. Belgian proofs and Crown/PF maker marks, as well as a mark referencing Adams' 1851 patent. Cased in the French style with a walnut box and form fit tan velvet interior (apparently faded from its original salmon color). Accessories include a second cylinder numbered to the pistol, an unmarked copper bag shaped flask, a pewter oiler, a two cavity iron bullet mold, a wood handled turnscrew and nipple wrench, a wooden cleaning rod with a brass jag and puller. Condition: Very good to fine. The revolver retains much of the blued finish, with some loss and fading and scattered freckles of surface oxidation. Mechanically functional, but only as a double action only revolver. The mechanism does not allow for manually cocking the hammer, and does not feel like it never did. Find bright bore, crisply checkered grips. Casing good, missing the pillow from the lid and with replaced hinges. Accessories good to very good.
