American Remington Elliot’s 1865 Patent .41 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Double Barrelled Derringer & Period leather Holster. Sn 16624 - 16624
The design of the Remington double derringer was little changed by Remington during a production run of nearly 70 years. This is a very good fully functioning example. The pistol has two 3" barrels and measures 5" overall making it easy to conceal and therefore popular with Wild West Gamblers. The top of the barrel rib is stamped 'E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION N.Y.' & 'ELLIOTS PATENT DEC 12 1865'. The underside of the bottom barrel is numbered '637'. It has a shrouded trigger & undamaged wood grips. The pistol retains its original factory nickel plating which has areas of wear and blemishes to be expected with age. The barrels bores have staining consistent with age and use and its loading cocking and firing actions work perfectly. The derringer comes with a period leather holster in which the derringer was found. The brown leather holster has a flap cover which is absent its fastening button and rear copper riveted belt loop. The leather is intact but has wear to be expected with age. The price for this iconic piece of American Wild West history includes UK delivery.
