Adams percussion revolver is a brainchild of British gunsmith Robert Adams who got a patent for a new revolver design in 1851. The gun was a .436 5-shot DAO solid frame revolver with a spurless hammer. East India Company was the first to put the new revolver into service. British officers often purchased the Adams revolver privately while the Army waited until 1857 when an improved Beaumont-Adams version was adopted. Ten years later it was replaced by .450 6-shot breach loading version, designed by Robert's brother John Adams.
