The Nobel Gun of the Civil War: The LeMat Model
The most unusual, but certainly well known since the Civil War among all the black powder revolvers, bears the name of Le Mat.
This revolver allowed 10 shots (9 shots plus 1 in .65 cal.). The .65 cal. central barrel is produced, for market requirements, in .20 cal. for muzzleloaders.
Now the LeMat has been perfectly re-created for collectors and historians in the three main models: CAVALRY, with spur triggerguard, lever type barrel release, cross pin barrel selector and a lanyard ring,NAVY with knurled pin barrel release and spur barrel selector, ARMY similar to the Navy Model with cross pin barrel selector.
