AR221018G: Replica 1850 American Derringer Pistol
This reproduction Derringer pistol from Denix brings a classical feel with museum-level quality. The pistol features a wooden grip and an engraved firing mechanism and hammer. Derringers are small self-defense firearms that are designed to be concealed easily. This replica makes a great addition to any enthusiast's collection.
Percussion pistols were a technological upgrade from the flintlock pistol in that they use shock-sensitive explosives such as fulminate or mercury to fire the round rather than relying on the spark from flint striking the pan. This makes them far more reliable in wet conditions than their predecessors.
