While the larger M 1854, 12mm Lefaucheux pattern pinfire revolver was to become the fourth most commonly used revolver in the American Civil War, surpassed only by the Colt, Remington and Starr percussion pistols, that popularity undoubtedly brought it’s little brother the compact little folding trigger 7mm as is offered here into the field as many took privately owned, Lefaucheux pattern, pin fire revolvers into the fray. Once again we owe diggers a note of gratitude as it is not uncommon for relic hunters to find 7mm and 9mm as well as the more common 12mm pinfire cartridges in known Civil War campsites. Excavated and recovered pinfire revolvers are known from these campsites as well with at least one small privately owned pinfire recovered from the wreck of the USS Cairo gunboat. It is on display at Vicksburg National Military Park. While most of those imported for private purchase by the popular military equipage firm Schuyler Hartley & Graham, appear to have been acquired directly from Lefaucheux in Paris, existing examples with American Civil War provenance clearly place Belgian proofed revolvers in the mix. Other importers who brought pinfire revolvers to our shores include Herman Boker, George Raphael and Tiffany & Company. Period documentation indicates that pinfire revolvers saw significant use by Confederate soldiers and many deep south arsenals maintained inventories of pin fire cartridges. This revolver is a solid example of a Belgian made gun with strong Liège proofs. Offered as found and acquired from a small Civil War grouping this pleasing little personal arm remains untouched and as carried even to include the removal of the ejector rod and keeper, common malady of carried examples of these little pinfires, as ejection of spent cartridges was easily accomplished without putting up with a protruding and cumbersome ejection rod when tucking the little hide-out away in pocket, waist belt or boot. An attractive Civil War display item without breaking the bank. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
