Product Information

This is a superb example of an Adams Patent .442 Percussion Revolver that was retailed by Joseph Brazier & Son, Wolverhampton, circa 1850-1851. From 1834 to 1887, Joseph Brazier & Son address was "The Ashes" on Great Brick Kiln Street, Wolverhampton. By 1838, the firm was also making implements, and had been appointed lock makers to the East India Company and the Board of Ordnance. In 1849, Joseph's elder son, also named Joseph, was made a partner, and the firm became known as Joseph Brazier & Son. By 1851, younger son Richard Brazier was made a partner, and the firm was renamed J & R Brazier. This company exhibited locks and accessories at the Great Exhibition of 1851. This Revolver that was sold by them has its original factory blued finish, hand chequered wooden grips and correct period British proofs. The double action is in good working order and indexes correctly after each cycle.

As seen on other military issued or procured weapons it has matching numbers to the forward pistol grip and grip trapdoor. British Officers from this period had to privately purchase their sidearm with many seeing active service in the Crimean War and the American Civil War.

This historic revolver can be owned live without any form of license. It has a full working action and can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.

It is not deactivated in any way and is being sold as a collectors piece only.
