The familiar Confederate Napoleon that is very recognizable is characterized by absence of muzzle swell, sensibly uniform taper of the chase, a cylindrical reinforce which reverts to the Federal standard at 15 inches in length, and a slender knob and neck variously described as “grain of corn” or “rolling pin handle.” These guns were produced at four government locations and at Tredegar Foundry.
