RAREST OF THE RARE! .41 CALIBER LEMAT REVOLVER CARTRIDGE

$1,250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1179-384

This is a .41 caliber revolver cartridge for the French LeMat revolver. The cartridge remains in excellent condition.

The nine-shot LeMat revolver also had a smoothbore barrel that fired buckshot.  Because of this, the Confederate Ordnance Manual called the LeMat revolver the “Grape-shot pistol”. As many as 2000 to 3000 of these revolvers were run through the blockade. These unusual weapons are known to have been carried such well-known soldiers as J.E.B. Stuart and Stonewall Jackson.

This small revolver cartridge was made at the Richmond Laboratory on Brown’s Island.

A rare Confederate-made cartridge for one of the rarest revolvers. [jet] [ph:L]
