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.
Known for their fine craftsmanship and rarity, the J.H. Dance Company Revolver was one of many southern revolvers that came to be after the Souths call to arms. These pistols were based off the Colt Dragoon and were manufactured in Texas for just 3 short years (1862-1865) with less than 400 actually being produced. The single action 6 shooter was originally available in .36 and .44 calibers. This fully functioning replica is available in .44 cal and is perfect for re-enactments, display or fun.
