1. Original LeMat Revolver.
This is gun has a nine-chambered
cylinder and weighs about four
pounds. What makes this revolver
unique is the addition of a second
smoothbore barrel, of
approximately .63 caliber,
underneath the barrel. This larger
barrel was designed to fire
buckshot. The top of the hammer
was fitted with a pivoting striker
that could be rotated to fire the .42
caliber rounds or changed to fire
the lower, larger barrel.
This percussion revolver was
designed by Dr. Jean Alexandre
Francois LeMat, of New Orleans.
LeMat was assisted in this
enterprise by P. G. T. Beauregard,
one of the Confederacy’s well
known generals. These revolvers
were manufactured from 1856 to
1865, with less than 2,900 being
produced. They were made in
Paris, France, and Birmingham,
England. Many were purchased by
the Confederacy
