Price drop: Remington Double Derringer and ammo need loving home

Recommended Posts

Here’s a real senior citizen – a Remington Double Derringer in .41 Short rimfire.

This Remington was introduced in 1866 and made until 1935, with between 130,000 and 150,000 made, depending on which reference source you believe.  According to the style of lettering on the barrel, this one is a third model, made between 1889 and 1911.

The gun is nickel plated with hard rubber grips.  The nickel is in great condition for its age, and the grips are uncracked.  Also uncracked is the barrel hinge, which is fortunate, since this was a known weakness of the design.  Many of these that you’ll see for sale on the auction sites have cracked hinges, but not this baby. 

The serial number on this little angel is 27…but before you get too excited, you should know that the serial number sequence was restarted several times during the almost 70 years when this gun was made.  There are other #27s out there somewhere.  But this one could be yours.

Bore is in good shape for a gun firing corrosive ammo for more than 110 years.  You can see from the photos that there’s light pitting, but lands and grooves are distinct the full length of the barrels.  If you want a backup gun to wear with your Cowboy Action Shooting rig, if you want to relive the Wild, Wild West fantasies of your childhood, or if you just like historically significant firearms, then this is a heater you will want.

Also coming with this gun will be 76 rounds of ammo -- a full box of 50, plus 26 loose rounds.  As best I can recall, we fired part of a box in the late 1970s, which is I believe the last time this thing was fired.  If you think the price of modern 9mm and .45 ammo is stiff, check the auction sites for .41 Short rimfire.  You can fire this historic gem 26 times to get a sense of it, and then put it in the safe with a full box of ammo and watch it appreciate.  (Be sure to clean the gun first.  🙂 )

 Price drop:  $600 face to face in the Nashville-Murfreesboro area.  Will also consider trades.

Thanks for looking,

It's been pointed out to me that there are other guns chambered for .41 Short rimfire, and that due to the scarcity of this ammo, some people might want the ammo but not the gun.  So, if someone would like to buy the ammo separately, I'd consider that.  Send PM.

Thanks for looking,

      $375 ..... LNIB Ruger Mark III with original box, factory papers, etc.
      Not related to the Mark III, but included at no cost --- New Allen Nylon Hip Holster and  a Used BladeTech GL43 left-handed outside-the-waist Belt Clip Holster --- (yeah, you gotta take these free items off my hands, even if you don't really want them) 😁

      More Pics available but there is not a scratch on this gun 
      Open for trades but might consider .556 or 9mm ammo as partial but be reasonable with pricing not going to credit 70cents a round  maybe something in .308 with a bolt as well  who knows, let me know what you have  
      Meet near Roane County , Crossville, Lenoir City or West Knox

      Gently used Bushmaster Close Quarter Combat. 1 mag run through it. Used the box to ship another rifle. Original mag, reflex sight does not go with. Would trade straight up for a Tikka in 300 WSM, 280, or a 6.5 Grendel in a bolt action.  or ????? $800. Tex 262 206 7758 for anymore details.
