Here is your chance to own a gun that is arguably the most desirable of all Civil War weapons. It is the desirable pistol known to collectors as the "LeMat” revolver. Colonel LeMat was the man that held the patent on this unique revolver. It fired nine .42 caliber shots from the cylinder that works as a usual revolver. Under the main barrel it has a huge .63 caliber shotgun barrel for blasting buckshot. That was you last line of defense. The hammer has a pivoting striker that turns down to strike the nipple for the shotgun blast. This is the pattern known as the 2nd model that has the loading lever mounted on the left hand side of the barrel. The original loading lever is intact on this one. Most of the time it is missing or has been replaced. Across the top of the barrel you can still see the Colonel LeMat Patent Mark. It is the ornate third pattern of LeMat markings that reads "Col Le Mats.g.d.g. Paris". This one has matching numbers on all of the parts including the loading lever of "1,117” throughout the gun. These numbers are nice and in the lower portion of the production that went to over 2,400. We know that this range were used by Confederate because Confederate General Braxton Bragg's LeMat was serial number 1,273. As you see, the metal parts have a uniform dark color and you can see some of the original factory finish underneath the untouched patina. The action of the gun works crisply on all positions. This one also has the distinctive lanyard circle at the bottom of the grip. The original 2 piece dark wood grips are present on the handle and they have the factory hand checkering. This gun just has a wonderful overall presentation and is a superb piece of Confederate firearms history.
