Pietta spiller and burr revolver available in stock for sale buy now
Although the resourcefully equipped Confederate soldier could not compete with Union repeating rifles, it was a different story when it came to revolvers. These handguns did not typically require a special type of ammunition, making them easy for Southern troops to acquire and operate.
This Confederate Pistol was born of a need for the South to arm itself. The Pietta Spiller and Burr .36 caliber revolver ( for sale ) was adopted as the standard revolver of the Confederate Government. The Pietta Spiller & Burr was modeled after the Whitney Revolver with only a few minor adjustments.
During the Southern campaign only 1,500 revolvers were actually made making them very hard to find and desirable. This replica is perfect for re-enactments or display. This replica features a 6.5″ blued octagonal barrel, brass frame, brass guard, and walnut grip.
