I have a mint Adams Model 1851 Revolver, 54 Bore, (.45) which I would want at least $3,500.00 Ausie for. I'd put a couple of pictures up but don't know how.

I just took these three which show the cylinder arbor in the correct position. I hope they are of interest to members.

The revolver appears to be unfired, the bore is perfect, and a close examination of the chambers in the cylinder shows the original honing marks still visible. The spring arm behind the cylinder on the left side is depressed with the hammer out to hold it off the percussion caps on the nipples when loaded. When the trigger is pulled it springs out allowing the revolver to be fired. It is a double action revolver which is why there was no hammer spur fitted.

Deactivated ? Not a chance !!! Perish the thought !! We can quite a variety of handguns on a Collector Licence here in NSW. Pre 1945 are the best bet, later stuff requres more security and I'm not interested in it anyway. No licence required for the Adams or any other flint or percussion items.
