Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
A nice write up of a modern firing reproduction of the original LeMat is at http://johno.myiglou.com/lemat.htm. I sold my Italian firing repro because of the huge price drop between new in the box and fired. I just couldn’t pull the trigger and lose $200 plus in value. Famous men who used the LeMat revolver include: J.E.B Stuart, M Gen Bragg & Gen Richard Anderson.A pretty good non-firing replica for prop use can be found at http://www.circlekb.com/product/CA22-1070G.html and http://www.amazon.com/Civil-Confederate-Pistol-Non-firing-Replica/dp/B004ESA4Y6. I’m sure there are other sources for these and other non-firing prop guns. You may have to build your own holster for this rig since it won’t fit into a conventional one. But that would be a great project for the leather workers out there.
Not sure if this would fit, described as Le Mat holster:http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_98_527&products_id=4215&osCsid=173a2990ac85e5d1369e2ad3327d1cf3
The replicas look great for the money (meaning the non-firing replicas)I can't imagine what an orignal would cost. For odd firearms I've always liked the Webley-Fosbery 455 Automatic Revolver. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuRQgFzLwY8&feature=related
