I have used the "National
Revolver," and believe it to the best and most convenient revolver ever offered
to the public. (Signed) JOHN S. FOLK,
Inspector of Metropolitan Police,
I have thoroughly tested the new
"National Revolver," and find it an effective weapon, of sure fire and
convenient size. At fifty yards, I think I could with this Pistol kill at every
shot. I take pleasure in recommending it as a weapon in every way desirable. In
company with Capt. Scott, Provost-Marshall, and other officers, I fired this
pistol a large number of times, and not one cartridge failed to explode.
(Signed,) JOHN CHARLESTON, Chief of Police, Cairo, Ill. We have one of the
"National Revolvers" now in use, and pronounce it one of the most perfect things
of the kind we ever saw. It is simple in construction, substantial, sure fire,
and shoots with the force and accuracy of a rifle. Any one in want of a good and
reliable weapon can not do better than procure a "National Revolver."
(Signed,) J. S. VINCENT, Editor and Proprietor New Era." We, the undersigned,
having used and thoroughly tested the National Revolvers, have no hesitancy in
saying that, for accuracy, force, and convenience, we think they are far
superior to any other Revolver yet produced. M. C. LOOMIS, with J. G. and W. J.
