Summary: The description, specs and photos for the Pedersoli Derringer Rider pistols.
Pedersoli says its Derringer Rider is a reproduction of the extremely rare Remington Rider Single Shot Derringer pistol of which only about 200 were produced 1860–1863. Small pistols suitable for indoor practice were called parlor pistols.
The pistol is of steel construction, available with polished white or case hardened finish. A wood case is available for one or for two pistols, and it includes a brass box for caps. The Deluxe version features rich scroll engraving. On the grip there are a series of crossed lines, giving a checkering effect.
Like the original, the pistol fires a .17″ (4.3mm) ball using only a percussion cap and no black powder charge. To fire it, shooters place a ball into the breech plug small tube (which is capped) inserted against the barrel. The hammer fires a # 11 cap, which expels the ball.
