CONFEDERATE
BEAUMONT-ADAMS REVOLVER
SERIAL NUMBER 33579
LONDON ARMOURY COMPANY

.

This gun is without question, a Confederate import.  The South purchased these guns in the serial number range from about 32XXX to about 41XXX.  The are listed on the Pratt List and replete in the historical record.  The new book, "The English Connection" lists one of these which is identified to a Confederate Artilleryman, which is 233 numbers from this very gun.  The London Armoury Company manufactured the Beaumont Adams concurrently with the Kerr Revolver.  While the Kerr was bought under contracts, it would appear the Adams was purchased open market as funds were available.  Their Confederate association cannot be denied.  The ones Southern purchasing agents bought will generally not have dealer or agent markings on the top strap.  This gun shows moderate wear, has matching numbers, is complete with excellent function.  You will note, there is a neat lanyard hole drilled in the grip.  To my mind, that is not a defacement.  It is further indication of its military use, probably by Confederate Cavalry.   SOLD!!
