Peanut-sized .41 caliber Philadelphia Deringer, c. mid-1800s
Peanut-sized .41 caliber Philadelphia Deringer
Philadelphia gun maker Henry Deringer was so successful in creating the best known example of the pocket pistol that his name became a generic term for any small, large caliber easy-to-hide pistol. Deringer produced his pocket pistols from the late 1830s through 1868, but it is almost impossible to tell exactly when a particular gun was made since they are not serial numbered. This is a classic example of a Philadelphia Deringer, with a barrel that measures 1.96” from the muzzle to the rear of the breech, making the overall barrel length under 2”, which is the definition of a “Peanut” sized deringer pistol. On the top is stamped "Deringer" and "Philadelphia." Through the years, "Deringer" has also been spelled "derringer."
