1-7/8" OAL This is
a faitful miniature of a French, Delvigne derringer. I had a good
time researching this gun - the original of which is in the Jimmy Thomas collection
- and there
is an article about it in the April 2007 issue of the Miniature Arms
The original, a 5mm
pinfire, is made of steel. The miniature is nickel plated cast
brass. This gun has good snap, and nice weight. The
barrel rotates to the side for loading, and is kept in place by a
unique side spring. The grips on the full size gun,
used as a model for this mini, has what look like baklite grips,
but I decided to make the example shown, in Ironwood, a dense, dark
wood which looks like the original, but is less fragile.
