A derringer is generally the smallest usable handgun of a given calibre. They have been used by women because they are easily concealable in a purse, or as a stocking gun. Derringers are not repeating firearms-repeating mechanism such as used on semiautomatic handguns or revolvers would add significant bulk to the gun, defeating the purpose. The original cartridge derringers held only a single round, usually a pinfire or rimfire cartridge, usually around a .40 calibre, and the barrel pivoted sideways on the frame to allow access to the breech for reloading. The famous Remington derringer design doubled the capacity, while maintaining the compact size, by adding a second barrel on top of the first, and pivoting the barrels upwards to reload. Each barrel then held one round, and a cam on the hammer alternated between top and bottom barrels. The Remington derringer was in .41 Rimfire short calibre, and achieved wide popularity.

This is beautiful non-firing replica pistol with fully working mechanisms.
