Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 99.9% of its metal finish. There is one nearly invisible mark on the right side of the bottom barrel – this is not even worth mentioning but is the only imperfection. The colors are vivid, the finish is proper and the fit of the grips is superb – this is a very well made gun. The Screw heads are unturned. The markings are crisp. Overall, this gun rates in about Excellent - LNIB condition.

Mechanics: The action functions as designed. The hammer is strong and the lock-up is good. This gun has never been fired and has probably only been cocked a handful of times.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This revolver comes in it’s original box, with matching end label (that has detached), instructions and Navy Arms pamphlet.

Our Assessment: The LeMat revolver was originally a .42 or .36 caliber cap & ball black powder revolver invented by Dr. Jean Alexandr LeMat of New Orleans, which featured a rather unusual secondary 16 gauge smoothbore barrel capable of firing buckshot. There is a pivoting tip on the hammer, which is left elevated when firing the revolver and pressed downward to strike the nipple for the shotgun barrel. These guns saw service with the armed forces of the Confederate States of America during the War of Northern Aggression and was a favorite of the cavalry. The Navy Arms revolvers are the only way you’ll be ably to buy one without mortgaging the house. The caliber of the reproduction is even far more practical than the original.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This antique pistol can be sold in California 18 years of age with valid ID.
