With octagonal barrel with brass front sight and stamped “L.A.C.” on the upper left flat and engraved “LONDON” on the top flat, the barrel extending to the topstrap which in turn extends to the wrist of the grip, and with a rammer beneath. Serial numbered cylinder and frame, the latter signed “KERR’S PATENT 417” on the right side. Blued back action lock signed “LONDON ARMOURY / BERMONDSEY”. Checkered walnut butt and plain furniture. London proof marks. In fitted stained oak case lined in green baize, the lid with large printed Kerr patent label with description of the revolver and directions for loading and cleaning, the label overstamped in red ink “SOLE MANUFACTURERS / THE LONDON ARMOURY COMPANY LIMITED”. Includes brass mounted copper Hawksley powder flask and double cavity brass bullet mold.
Good. The revolver is mostly bright metal and has scattered corrosion marking and pitting and the stamped and engraved details slightly worn. The lock and trigger have traces of original blued finish. The butt has some minor chips around the lock and the checkering worn smooth. The cylinder occasionally does not rotate when cocking the hammer; otherwise, mechanically very good. The case is good with a later varnished/stained exterior finish, relined interior with some age wear to lining, minor age staining to otherwise fine reattached original trade label, and externally with some storage and handling marks.
