Description

C1870 American Wild West Era Marlin ‘OK’ Model .30 Rim Fire Calibre, Brass Frame Swivel Barrel Single Shot Derringer. Sn 12600 - 12600

The American Gun manufacturer JM Marlin obtained a patent for a derringer mechanism on 5th April 1870. These pocket sized derringers were favoured by wild west era gamblers for self- protection. Marlin made 5 models of small single shot derringers. The 1st Model was un-named the others were named the ‘OK’, ‘Victor’, ‘Never Miss’ & ‘Stonewall’. This is a very good example of the Marlin patent ‘OK’ derringer with even patina throughout. Its wood grips have some wear consistent with age and use and the right grip has an old stable crack. Both grips are secure. It has a 3" clean smooth bore stepped barrel & measures 6" overall. It has a brass frame, sheathed trigger & steel barrel with blade fore sight. The right side of the breech is marked with the manufacturer's name and address ‘J.M. Marlin New Haven CT’. The top of the barrel is marked ‘OK’ (all illustrated). The underside of the barrel is numbered '10875'. The derringer’s barrel swivels for loading and is released by depression of a steel button on the underside of the frame when the pistol is at half cock. Its loading and firing actions work as they should. Price for this nice Wild West era derringer includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre derringer no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 12600
