CONFEDERATE
1ST MODEL LEMAT
SERIAL NUMBER 219

This is a a solid, very good condition, first model Confederate LeMat Revolver.  Only about 450 1st Model LeMats were made under contract with Confederate Ordnance.  Most of the early 1st Models seem to have made their way into the Army of Northern Virginia's Cavalry.  This gun would be a good candidate to have been issued to the Jeb Stuart's cavalry.  Jeb Stuart's personal 1st Model LeMat was serial number 105.  This gun is serial number 219.  It has the appearance of an issued gun that has seen use but was cared for.  The gun has all matching serial numbers with the exception of the cylinder, which is serial number 157 and from another first model LeMat.  This is more than likely an inter-unit switch.  When the members of the unit or the ordnance personel cleaned or worked on the guns, it is not unusual to find them mixing serial numbers.  This gun is well marked with a nice clear barrel address and the oval script LM on the right side of the barrel.  The hammer nose is intact and the loading lever assembly is serial numbered to the gun.  The action works nicely and is relatively crisp.  The grips show moderate wear from service and the gun has a nice patination.  SOLD!!
