The revolver used a double-action-only system in which the external hammer could not be cocked by thumbing it back, like most other pistols of the era, but instead cocked itself when the trigger was pulled. This made it possible to fire the gun much more rapidly than contemporary single-action revolvers, such as the Colt, which had to be cocked before each shot.
Adams' revolver was shown at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and subsequently approved by the British Army's
