This is a very different design from any of Deringer's models but the concept remained; a tall, large calibre, single shot handgun designed to stop a threat at close range. This gun manufactured by the Brown Manufacturing Company of Newburyport, Mass, from 1866-1873. It is a large calibre, 2 1/2" octagon barrel that loads by pivoting the barrel sideways. It is very well made with an extractor employed beneath the blue iron barrel. The silver plated brass frame and walnut grips set it off rendering a very pleasing blend of blued iron, shiny silver and dark wood.

The surviving examples nearly all reveal wear with the silver finish, case hardening and bluing almost always absent. By the same token, most are still functional.

The barrels are marked with the maker's name "Brown Mfg. Co/Newburyport, Mass/Pat. April 9, 1869." The serial number "8895" is stamped under the butt. "Southerner" is stamped on the top of the barrel.

The weapon is functional but should not be fired under any circumstances. Firing may cause injury to the antique and to the user.

This is an original and intact Brown Mfg. derringer and should be treated with care and respect as a relic of America's history.
Shipping insurance is highly recommended.
