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 .36 caliber revolver was adopted as the standard revolver of the Confederate Government. The 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. It is availabe in .36 caliber, weighs 2.75 lbs., and is 12.5" in length.
