Man! Just when you think you've seen everything...

I'm familiar with the LeMat revolver, but I've never heard of the carbine version. It's a beauty!

Cool! I know that fairly decent original pistols trade in the $10,000-$12,000 range. The carbines would probably be north of $50,000. And of course, as always, watch out for FAKES!

I have to ask. It looks so new. Is it a reproduction or an original that has been refurbished?

There is one in excellent condition on display in the Virginia Museum of the Civil War at New Market Battlefield State Historical Park in New Market, VA.

Would add serious power to the shotgun barrel and the 9 shots of .44 would be awesome.

I’ll bet it’s heavy, but seems like at least on paper it’d be a pretty good cavalry gun.

Nice work. Did you fabricate all the carbine specific parts yourself? Are you planning to make anymore? Is it for sale, not that I could afford something like that 😭

Could you give any details on how you made the barrels and stock? most of us like to know how even if we don't intend to do it ourselves.
Thanks,

I cut the bottom off the pistol grip and straightened straps .
built a model of butstock from softer wood till had it perfect then had it replicated in English walnut , removed original barrels and replaced them with correct length barrels , made from scratch rear sight as close as possible to original
