Circa 1875-1885. Marked on the top of barrel Remington Arms Co. Ilion. N.Y. The barrels and frame still retaining much of the original nickel plated finish. Chequered grips. Because of its small size and ease of concealment it became very popular with gentlemen who felt the need for a small back-up handgun. It was often carried by travellers, gamblers and was also well liked by women who wanted an easily concealable gun that could fit in a fur muff, purse or handbag. Out in the wild west, they filled the need of gamblers of the day and gunfighters who needed an extra backup hand gun. It was easy to locate 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. Some scratches to side of barrels (please see photos) otherwise in good condition retaining much of its original nickel plated finish. Good working action. Overall length approx 5 inches.
