An original, American Civil War era, French Perrin cartridge revolver. The gun is a 6 shot 12 mm. cartridge revolver with a one piece walnut grip. Five hundred and fifty of these were delivered to the US Federal Government, by Alexis Godillit, in 1862. There were also some purchased for the Southern Confederacy. This pistol would be a good project or could be used for parts.
