CONFEDERATE
KERR REVOLVER
SN 4828

A Confederate JS & Anchor marked Civil War Revolver.  This is one of the Kerr revolvers manufactured by the London Armoury Company and bought by Confederate Ordnance during the Civil War.  The JS&Anchor mark is today considered to be the Confederate Ordnance inspection mark.  This gun is all original with a pleasant patination.  The gun shows wear and tear commensurate to issue during the war.  There are some small chips in the grip around the edges of the lock plate and the action works but has a weak trigger spring.  These guns are single action but the trigger has to be returned to its most forward position for the action to reset.  The trigger return spring has weakened over time and does not quite bring the trigger back to the reset position.  You simply have to take your finger, push the trigger forward, then pull the hammer back and it works perfectly.  The lock plate is marked London Armoury Company, the right side of the frame is marked Kerr's Patent and serial number.  The left side of the frame has the London Armoury trade mark and the left flat of the barrel has English proofs and is marked L.A.C.  The gun is in solid, very good condition with a nice patination.  SOLD!!
