The LeMat Revolver. The patent for this revolver dates to 1856. It’s the design of a doctor; Jean Alexander LeMat and a soldier; P. G. T. Beuregard. Both were Louisiana born Americans and were prominent members of the American Confederacy. This revolver was commissioned for service, for Confederate forces, and was initially manufactured in Belgium and France. Because of poor quality control, on the Continent, the manufacture moved to Birmingham, England and completed firearms had to run the Union blockade of the Confederate ports. Although originals of this revolver are of various calibre the modern replicas are 0.44 calibre with a 20 bore shot barrel.
