Percussion revolver owned by Captain William Kelly circa 1855. The stock consists of a chequered walnut grip with a steel butt plate incorporating a hinged trap. There is a solid steel frame and steel trigger guard, all lightly decorated with engraved scrolls. The lock is double action, the squeezing of the trigger rotates the five-chambered cylinder, cocks the action and then releases the hammer. The barrel is of octagonal external section, rifled with three grooves. A notched rear sight above and slightly forward of the top of the hammer lines up with a blade foresight. The revolver is in a wooden box with a screwdriver, a nipple wrench, a ramrod, a nipple primer, a steel patch cutter, a ball and bullet mould and a wooden tompion.
