even more lemat...

Indy 1919. yes, the shot barrel can remain caped and loaded while the cyl is totally off the rest of the gun. though in our over legated world I must add, this would require much caution. it could fire as a single, very short 20 guage. the nipple for the shot barrel is center in the frame and under the hammer. to fire it, there is a toggle in the hammer that is manually flipped to hit the shot barrel nippel. this was a feature the rebs were well aware of. also, spur trigger guards were common on mid 19th century pistols, a feature lemat incorporated. here's something to look up, lemat also made a carbine version and a pin fired model .
