REMINGTON Antique SAW HANDLE No. 2 “Vest Pocket” .32 RF DERINGER Pistol
SCARCE 1 of 10,000 Made During Production Run
Here we present an antique Remington Saw Handle No. 2 Deringer (also known as the Vest Pocket Pistol), made from 1865-1888. This is an example of the .32 caliber cartridge Vest Pocket. Invented by William H. Elliot, only about 17,000 of these guns were made in all calibers in total over the 23 years production run, with around 10,000 made in the larger calibers. 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.
This neat little pistol with walnut grips would have been a very handy pistol to have stuck down in one’s vest pocket while paddle-wheeling down the Mississippi River when the poker game went awry!
The overall condition is good. Strong action. The bore is in good shape for its age. Sharp markings. Both grips contain an average amount of handling wear. The finish has matured to a dark brown patina.
