C1850's 1st Type Deane Adams & Deane London (Makers To HRH Prince Albert) .32 Calibre Five Shot Double Action Percussion Revolver With Spurless Hammer & Octagonal Barrel. Sn 13614 - 13614
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, Deane Adams & Deane 5 shot percussion revolver. The weapon's double action firing mechanism work as they should. It has a 4 ½” octagonal barrel (9 ¼” overall). The barrel has a small blade fore sight & notched plate rear sight. The top of the frame is crisply marked 'Deane Adams & Deane Makers To HRH Prince Albert 30 King William Street, London' and has Victorian black powder proofs. It has foliate engraving to the frame & trigger guard. The frame is engraved ‘Adams Patent’ and partially legible ‘No. 5771?’1’.

SOLD SOLD SOLD American Civil War Era North’s Patent Savage Revolving Firearms Company 6 Shot .36 Calibre Large Frame Military Revolver With Octagonal Barrel. Sn 13612 - 13612
The Savage 1861 Navy was a cap and ball revolver manufactured by the Savage Revolving Firearms Company from 1861 to 1862. This company is unrelated to the later Savage Arms Company. It was used by both sides during the American Civil War. The Savage 1861 Navy is quite unique recognized by its use of a kind of "proto double-action" with a second trigger underneath the first. When this trigger with finger ring is pulled it cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder. The small trigger causes the hammer to fall. Designed in 1860 by Henry S. North and Edward Savage, production began in Middletown, Connecticut in 1861 and ended in 1862 with a total of 20,000 units produced. An initial order of 5,500 units was placed in 1861 but was later extended to 12,000 units. The first units were delivered late 1861 and several ended up being used by the Confederates. The Savage 1861 Navy was officially used by the following United States Army Regiments: 1st Wisconsin U.S. Volunteer Cavalry, 2nd Wisconsin U.S. Volunteer Cavalry, 5th Kansas Volunteer Cavalry, and the 7th New York Cavalry. Confederate States Army Regiments: 34th Battalion of Virginia Cavalry, 35th Virginia Cavalry, 11th Texas Cavalry, 7th Virginia Cavalry and the 7th Missouri Cavalry. The United States Navy also used the revolver in small numbers. This original example is in very good fully functioning condition. It has a 7” octagonal barrel and measures 15” overall length. It has a brass post fore sight and notched plate rear sight. The metal work has even patina throughout. The American walnut grips have just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. The top of the frame is marked ‘Sav RFA Co Middletown CT HS North Patented June 17 1856 January 18 1859 May 15 1860’. There are no visible exterior inspection marks or serial numbers on the pistol.
