Engraved REMINGTON Antique SAW HANDLE Vest Pocket .22 Cal. Rimfire DERINGER
SCARCE 1 of 17,000 Made During Production Run!
Here we present an antique Remington Saw Handle Deringer (also known as the Vest Pocket Pistol), made from 1865-1888. This is an example of the .22 rimfire cartridge Vest Pocket. Invented by William H. Elliot, only about 17,000 of these guns were made in total over the 23 years production run. This single shot pistol is very simple in mechanics. Place the hammer in the most rearward position and load a cartridge. The hammer also acts as the loading gate and breach block.
The overall condition is very good. Original blue preserved on the barrel. Strong action. The bore is in good shape containing various spots of pitting. Good grips. Sharp floral engravings on both side of the frame. Although small, this little deringer will have a prodigious impact on the collection.
