A scarce Remington-Elliot 4 barrelled ring trigger Derringer in obsolete .32 rimfire calibre. William Elliot, an employee of Remington, invented the Remington –Elliott 4 barrelled 1860 patent derringer. It has a steel frame with 4 barrel cluster. The metal work has even patina. A small sliding lever on the underside of the frame releases the barrel cluster which breaks open for loading. To fire each barrel the ring trigger moves forward to cock the weapon and is pulled back to fire the first round. The system is repeated to fire each chamber which is achieved by means of a rotating firing pin within the action. The loading and firing mechanisms work perfectly. The barrel cluster is 3 ¼” long and the derringer measures 5” overall length. The barrels are .41 RF calibre and the bores have just light staining consistent with age and well defined rifling. The derringer has a small blade fore sight and the rear sights consist of notches in the frame of the derringer. The barrel cluster is faintly engraved to one side "Manufactured by E. Remington & Sons. Ilion N.Y", the other side faintly marked " Elliot's Patents May 29 1860.- Oct 11th 1860". There are no other external manufacturer, date marks or numbers on this piece. The grips are American Rosewood. The bottom edges of the grips have a few nibbles which are only visible on close inspection. Both grips are totally secure. The price for this unusual and desirable 4 shot 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 14248.
