of it), at the fore end, and can be carried when loaded with out the slightest
danger. 2d. The cylinder never fouls ; is made from solid steel, bored; and can
not get out of repair, or clog, as cylinders made of many parts will do. 3d. The
cartridge is made on an improved plan; the fulminate is concentrated in one
place, which insures sure fire; Is METALLIC, CENTRAL FIRE, AND WATER-PROOF. 4th.
Its peculiar model makes it the most desirable Pocket Revolver ever made. FOR

Certificates. 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,)JOIN 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 Propriator
for " 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.
