SCARCE Antique NATIONAL ARMS No. 2 .41 Cal. Rimfire SPUR TRIGGER Deringer
Nicely Engraved NICKEL FRAME Pre-Colt Pistol
Here we present an antique National Arms Company No. 2 Deringer Pistol, made just after the close of the American Civil War with a production run between 1865 and 1870 in Brooklyn, New York. Only 12,000 of these were made by National Arms before the company was purchased Colt. This scarce little Deringer is chambered for a single shot of .41 rimfire, a likely choice for very concealable self-defense in the last half of the 19th Century.
The entire barrel swivels on a hinge for loading, when the hammer is put into half cock and the release button is pushed. The hammer is split and acts as the rear sight when in full cock. After the original maker, Moore’s, was purchased by the National Arms Co., the Colt Firearms Co. bought National Arms and started making the pistol in 1870!
This overall condition is fine. Original silver plated finish. The action is excellent. The bore is in very nice condition with bright surfaces and sharp rifling. The grips are in great shape.
