z Sold Colt Second Model Derringer Pistol

RJT#6304 -


Here we present an antique Colt Second Model Derringer pistol made circa 1880 in Hartford, Connecticut. In 1870 Colt purchased National Arms Company and began producing a Derringer pistol based on its design. This became Colt’s First Model Derringer, and it was Colt’s first single shot pistol. It was followed in quick succession by a very similar pistol, called Colt’s Second Model Derringer.

Both of these pistols were chambered for .41 rimfire and featured a barrel that rotated counter-clockwise for loading and unloading. This little pistol was made from 1870-1890, with a total production of only 9000. This is one of the few Colt pistols to come standard from the factory with scroll engraving. Chambered in .41 rimfire, this little single-shot packed a sizable projectile. The Colt address is on top of the barrel.

The overall condition is very good. Gray patina throughout. The action is excellent. The bore is clean with strong rifling. The grips are solid. London proofed on the barrel.

Barrel is 2-1/2 inches.

Caliber: .41 rimfire

Overall condition as seen in photos.
