CIVIL WAR STARR PERCUSSII0N SINGLE ACTION PISTOL

“SOUTHERNER” SINGLE BARREL DERRINGER PISTOL 1870’s

It may sound like a fine southern pistol but was actually manufactured in Newburyport, Mass. by Merrimack Arms and Brown Mfg. Company. Obviously they  were marketing to the southern buyer. This .41 caliber single shot pistol is loaded by swinging out the barrel.  The brass frame was originally nickle or silver plated. All is worn off. The only marks we can make out is “SOUTHERNER” stamped on top of the barrel and a serial number on frame. This little derringer is tight and clean,  The stag grips are not original but very nice. This is not a military pistol but we decided to place in this category to make it easy. Nice early rim fire pistol.  PRICED $450
