While researching one of my ancestors I stumbled upon his pistol for sale online and bought it. It’s a 12mm, M1854 Cavalry model, formerly belonging to Colonel Gustave A Breaux of the 30th Louisiana Infantry Regiment, CSA. I am attempting to post some videos of the pistol here.
It needs an ejector rod. I can apply forward pressure to the trigger and get the hammer to stay back. Cylinder seems to index well.
What can you guys tell me about this pistol? From what little I have read so far I expect this was custom ordered?
