The LeMat actually was not very popular w/ the men who carried them, the CS govt didn't like them much either mainly due to their cost and odd ammo. The men disliked them for their weight and odd .40 or .42 cal, I don't recall which, bullet. In short existing stocks of ammo were either too big or too small. A Kerr or Colt was about half the weight and less than a third of the cost; not to mention being less complex and easier to maintain and get ammo for.

I believe less than 1500 were imported into the CS.

Albert; I think I've heard you sing... oops wait a minute that was the mules in the corral at the end of the company street. :)
