The first time they listed it, I believe they said it was Uberti made. However, Uberti never made Lemat's did they? It should be pretty easy to tell if it's italian made or original as the threads would be metric on a repro.

I suggested to the seller that since they
were in Lost Wages to take it over to the
Pawn Stars gun guy. Dont know if they did. If
it was a genuine sn 333 cyl, it might have been
a cyl from one of the first shipment of Le Mats that
made it through the Union blockade.

Would the Italian made repro have metric threads? what about the original Lemats that were made in England France and Belgium. I some how guess that they just might be metric also.

I believe all modern Italian repros have metric threads including the nipples. I have no
idea what mechanical std was used in the 1860s in Europe.
Maybe mssr. Lionrobe will chime in from France.
I caught the Pawn Stars show where Rick offered a guy
$ 12k for an original Le Mat. I think the seller wisely declined.

Bonjour and a bighowdy from deep in the heart of
Texas.
A couple of Le Mats came up on gb lately. An early model with a plain non engraved
cylinder sold for $925 with 20+ bidders. There is another fancy gilded
"limited edition collectable" Le Mat with no bids at $1300.

LeMat Tune Up - Col. Lemat

Col. Lemat,

You tuned up my LeMat back in 2011.

Are you still doing tune ups on the Pietta LeMat pistol, for general fit and reliable shotgun firing?

I came across some posts somewhere related to the Le Mat shown in the gun case aboard the "Wanderer" Pullman car in the "Wild Wild West" movie. It appears to be a steam punkish Le Mat prop gun with an interesting double ball-jointed shoulder stock. It got me thinking.....maybe?????

Very nice. You da Man! Cant wait to see the video shooting the shotgun and the revolving rifle and how you hold it with your off hand using that big trigger guard.

I love your work creating your LM Long gun. I have gotten into Bulldog style revolvers of late. Do you think a firing short barrel Bulldog Le Mat is doable? I made a photoshop drawing of a prototype. It looks pretty interesting...safe and accurate? Maybe not so much.
