Manufacturer’s Description

The American Derringer M-8 was designed to give ranchers, campers, fishermen, farmers, hikers, hunters and other outdoorsmen a small, lightweight pistol for shooting snakes you can also use as a survival gun (or to kill small game), or even as a competition gun. The M-8s sport an 8″ barrel and are chambered in a variety of calibers, including .45 LC, .45 ACP, .410 or .357 Magnum (which also accepts .38 Special).

These single-action guns feature automatic barrel selection, and all American Derringers are equipped with a manually operated hammer-block type safety. The safety automatically disengages when the hammer is cocked. The guns are finished in either a high polish or a satin finish. Standard grips include rosewood, walnut or black, and you can also get natural ivory or stag grips.
