LeMat, Paris     Confederate Second Model Percussion Double-Barrel Revolver:     .42 calibre and 16 gauge.

LeMat revolvers were used notably by Confederate officers during the Civil War. With his back against the wall, all he had to do was flip the hinged teat at the tip of the hammer nose downward (as in the above photo) to engage the central 16 gauge "sawed-off" shotgun (see photo below).
