CONFEDERATE
GARRETT PISTOL

This old veteran is a Confederate single shot pistol manufactured by J. F. Garrett Company of Greensboro, North Carolina.  This is the same company that made the Tarpley Carbine.  It is apparent that the hammers, barrels and ramrod assemblies were sourced from parts lying around the US Arsenals that the Confederates took over.  They are all Model 1842 single shot parts.  J. F. Garrett figured out how to cast a frame, build an internal action and manufacture grips to utilize the surplus parts.  Approximately 500 of these guns were assembled.  This one is serial number 105.  There are numerous dents and dings in this gun, both on the barrel and the frame.  The action still functions and the main spring is original but it has weak tension.  The rammer assembly is original and the J. H. over P US inspector mark is still visible at the left rear of the barrel.  The gun has seen pretty heavy use but it is still intact.  Price $5,750.
