FACTORY PRESENTATION
DELUXE ENGRAVED
ADAMS REVOLVER
SN 41317
PRESENTED BY ROBERT ADAMS

 

This is one of the neatest Adams Revolvers I have ever seen.  It is Factory Deluxe Engraved in very nice condition with plenty of blue mixing with an untouched patination.  The grips are excellent and the mechanical function is fine.  The engraving is extremely well done, sharp and crisp with an unusual amount of coverage.  It is inscribed on the top strap "Major Rawlings, From, Robert Adams, No. 76, King William Street, London, 1864."  I do not know the real historical significance of the gun but I know it is the only factory presentation gun I have ever seen given by Robert Adams.  Robert Adams was knee deep in supplying guns to the Confederacy, was a major shareholder in the London Armoury Company and was active with the British Government.  He was Sam Colt's fierce competitor in the London market.  Major Rawlings may turn out to be a British ordnance official, a friend of the family or just someone Robert Adams was attempting to curry favor with.  These presentations at the time were a socially accepted form of bribery.  A very nice factory presentation which is no doubt historically significant.  Price $3,950.  Price Reduced!! $3,550.  SOLD!!
