The Mariette Pepperbox is a family of percussion cap pepperbox revolvers, designed by Belgian arms manufacturer Mariette (various sources name Gilles Mariette or Guillaume Mariette, both of whom were gunsmiths of the same era). The six-barrel version is the most common, but various models from four to twenty-four barrels also existed. A feature of all Mariette pepperbox guns is a ring trigger.

They should not be confused with J.R. Cooper pepperboxes, which are similar in appearance, but have some minor differences, such as a different shape of the barrels block.
