In 1854, Frenchman Eugene Lefaucheux introduced the Lefaucheux Model 1854, notable as being the first revolver to use self-contained metallic cartridges rather than loose powder, pistol ball, and percussion caps.

It was a French military revolver chambered for the 12 mm pinfire cartridge, based on a design by Casimir Lefaucheux (his father, also a gun designer). This is an excellent original 12mm calibre , 6 shot French Lefaucheux Model 1854 revolver.

Of these, 12,000 found their way into Union service and were often used by Union officers. The LeFaucheux was one of the only foreign-manufactured revolvers to have been imported by the U.S. Government during the Civil War. They were often referred to as the "French Tranter".
