Production for this dragoon-type six-shot round cylinder revolver was started to attempt to meet the South’s great need for small arms, but is believed to have been limited to fewer than 500 because the factory had to be relocated due to the threat of shelling by Union gunboats. Absence of recoil-shield protrusions gave the gun a flatter appearance than its contemporaries. One-piece walnut grips. Blued finish. Brass grip straps. Barrel length: 8". Overall length: 13-1/4". Weight: 2 lbs. 7 oz.
