    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 2604. An American Remington .41 rim-fire double barrelled over and under Derringer pistol. Circa 1875-1885. Marked on the top of the 3 inch barrel Remington Arms Co. Ilion. N.Y. Chequered grips. Because of its small size and ease of concealment it became very popular with gentlemen who felt the need for a small defensive handgun. It was often carried by travellers, gamblers and was also well liked by women who wanted an easily concealable gun that could fit into a fur muff or purse/handbag. Out in the wild west, they filled the need of gamblers of the day and gunfighters who needed a backup hand gun. It was easy to produce from its hidden location in a boot top or vest pocket. According to Capt. Joseph Bourke who was an 1880’s Arizona lawman, he packed as many as ten small derringers secreted on his person at a time. In good condition but with some blemishes and signs of use and wear. Good working action. Overall length approx 5 inches. Ref 2604. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
