Product Details
In 1861,  with very few resources, the Confederacy attempted to arm itself. Several armories and factories were created in the South to help meet  these needs.

Established by Lt. Col. James H. Burton at the request of  the Confederate Chief of Ordnance, the private manufacturing firm of  Spiller & Burr set out to manufacture 15,000 revolvers over two and  one half years for the Confederate cavalry. The contract called for a  .36 caliber Navy revolver, Colt's model. Colt's Navy revolver had been  adopted by the Confederate government as a standard revolver, but Burton  felt another type of revolver was superior to Colt's. Burton selected  the Whitney revolver, Second Model, First Type as a model arm for  Spiller & Burr. Burton based his decision on the merits of the arm's  performance, stability, design, and ease of construction.      The company  encountered difficulty producing the revolver in quantity due to a  shortage of labor and problems with raw materials. And Sherman's march  through Georgia imposed even more problems.

The factory ceased  production at war's end with slightly more than 1,500 revolvers  fabricated, fulfilling only one tenth the number called for in the  original contract.

This beautiful re-production is made by F.LLI Pietta.

Review: My first order from EMF and I’m impressed. Good service and fast shipping. As for the firearm, I really like it. It’s a neat design that from a function standpoint appeals to me more so than the Colt, but isn’t quite as good as the Remington in my opinion. It is a visually appealing arm, though plain in all respects as is expected. A nice piece for the collection and a nice firearm to shoot.
