Additionally mine is about 39 years old and unfired. I might be best left that way. I realize many here do not believe in have a gun that is not a shooter, however a guy can only shoot so many! L@.

Hi tljack, is your 39yr old LeMat a Pietta? My 18yr old Pietta LeMat has a serial number of 118, pretty low.

Regards,
Richard

I am sorry to be so slow replying to your question!! I did not see the post until now.
I have no idea. Theo only markings are: Navy Arms then the city, On top of the barrel it says, "Col LeMat, under the loading lever "black powder only" No date code, no proof marks, no manufacture emblem etc. Serial is 789. My dating is based on the friend I bought it from who purchased it new.

Hi, LeatherSmithMike made me a holster for my LeMat, it just arrived today. The LeMat fits like a glove:



You may ask, who made that great belt? LeatherSmithMike of course.

When shooting I always like a pristine gun and a holster that I can be proud. You will never go wrong having LeatherSmithMike do your leather work.

Now for some nice shooting weather.

Richard
