Standard configuration, full octagonal barrel marked "Col. Lemat Bte s.g.d.g. Paris". This is an honest example of the famous grapeshot revolver that would have been in the Confederate Army in early 1863. Survival on guns prior to about serial number 1450 are much lower than later guns. These guns saw typically hard use in the Confederate Army and Navy and only a small percentage still retain the original loading assembly such as this example. This gun also has a most interesting period well-fit trap door on right grip panel to hold caps or extra nipples. This gun has "CS" and "SC" surcharges which are very old and appear from their period of use not seen on any other Confederate LeMat previously. Good to very good condition overall. Markings are crisp and well-defined; all matching serial numbers as noted above, other than cylinder which is numbered 1173. This gun is complete and all-matching, functional with minor restoration to shotgun selector on tip of hammer, loading lever screw and sight are period replacements. Metal is overall mottled gray with scattered freckling and dark spots, a few scattered marks from use and slight marring to some screws. A very honest and scarce Confederate LeMat revolver.
