    I know that the first Unit to receive them was the Singapore Volunteer Corps in 1889 and that the Russians had them in the Russo- Japanese War in 1904, but I have no Idea who made your Example.

    Nope. Edit: Hint: The Maxim may have been first used by the Brits, but it wasnt officially adopted by them first.

    I am not entirely sure what you are asking here, but here it goes, It was invented by Hiram Maxim in 1884, it was first adopted by the British in 1888 and officially by the British Army in 1912, I am not entirely sure when the Germans adopted it, but I guess it was around 1908 since they named it Model 08, I think that it was adopted in the US in 1904 and made by Colt.
    It is a version of the Maxim, but who made this version? And in comparison to other countries adopting their versions of the Maxim machine gun, when was this version of the Maxim officially adopted? I can't be more specific because it would give it away.

    And a bonus question: When did the producing nation of this weapon adopt it in comparison to similar weapons being adopted by other nations?

    The Model 1855 loads and fires like a ball and cap revolver. The main draw back was the chance it would fire all cylinders at once so the front of the cylinders were normally covered with grease once it was loaded. (It could still chain fire, however.) The next problem was the gap between cylinder and barrel which cause a considerable flash and would often burn the hand in front of the cylinder.
