    Hello Friends,

    I hope you are all well today. This interesting little derringer has been in my family for along time, and i have always enjoyed
    looking at it. I thought you might like seeing this, so i decided to post some photos. The caliber is .22 rimfire. As always
    I look forward to your input.

    Have a good day!

    Very nice-looking pistol(s). How far back can you trace the derringer to your family?

    60-65 years, I guess that's not too long when considering its age. Glad you like them!

    Take care,

    Hello G,

    No, one at a time. As the hammer is pulled back a rotating firing pin rotates to the next barrel to be fired.

    Neat little pistol!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    You know, i was a little apprehensive about posting this because it has no military ties. But I am glad I did, and I am also glad you like.

    Thanks,

    A great little pistol. Looks to be in excellent condition.
    Nice thing is that .22RF ammo is very common
    and cheap.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I wouldn't mind one of those myself. When I'd say "Get in the ******* van!!" they'd know I was serious.
