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. This one has the original cylinder intact. 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 s the 2nd model that has the loading lever mounted on the left hand side of the barrel. The loading lever is the correct style and appears to be original to the gun. This gun has an ancient look all over like it spent many years exposed to the elements. The verbal history that accompanied the piece is that it came form the Vicksburg, Mississippi area and the humidity down there would certainly explain the roughness to the metal. Across the top of the barrel you can no longer see the marking but at one time it would have had the Colonel LeMat Patent Mark. It would have had the ornate third pattern of LeMat markings that reads "Col LeMat s.g.d.g. Paris". This one has the serial number "1,835” visible on the frame. These numbers are nice and in the middle of the production that went to over 2,400. 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 good overall presentation and is a superb piece of Confederate firearms history. Most of the ones you encounter these days are $15,000 to $25,000. THis is your chance to own a real one for a fraction of that price.
