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.
