The Le Mat revolver was designed by Frenchman Jean Alexandre Francois LeMat for the Confederates during the U.S. Civil War. Pietta has re-created this nine-shot revolver with an additional single-shot barrel.
Pietta’s LeMat is chambered in .44 (the main barrel), with the single-shot barrel chambered in .20 to meet market requirements for muzzleloaders (the original single-shot barrel was chambered in .65 caliber). Pietta is producing three models: the Army, Navy and Cavalry. The Army model features a knurled pin barrel release and a cross in barrel selector.
The Navy model features a knurled p in barrel release and a spur barrel selector. The Cavalry model features a spur triggerguard, a lever-type varrel release, a cross pin barrel selector and a lanyard ring.
All models feature an octagon steel main barrel, a round single-shot barrel and hand-checkered walnut grips. Various finishes and engravings are available, too.
