DANCE & BROTHERS
Location: Columbia, Texas
J.H., G.P. and D.E. Dance began production of percussion revolvers for the Confederate States of America in Columbia, Texas, in mid-1862, moving to Anderson, Texas in early 1864. Based on surviving serial numbers, combined output at both places did not exceed 350 pistols. Most of these were in the "Army" (.44-caliber) size but a limited number of "Navy" (.36-caliber) were also manufactured. Nearly all are distinguished by the absence of a "recoil shield" on the frame behind the cylinders. As Colt M1851 "Navy" revolvers closely resemble the Dance Navy revolvers, great care must be exercised in examining revolvers purported to be Dance Navies. Expert evaluation recommended.
