RARE & UNIQUE Antique Williamson DERINGER Pistol

BOTH Cartridge & Percussion Pistol!

Here we present an antique Williamson Deringer, made circa 1866 in Brooklyn, New York. David Williamson was the inventor of this unique design that was meant to be the stopgap between a time when the benefits of cartridge pistols were obvious and desirable, but ammunition supply in certain places was questionable. He chambered his Deringer for the .41 rimfire cartridge, but included a small adapter that allowed the user to use it as a percussion pistol as well. The hammer was such that it would strike the percussion cap if the adapter was being used (see the hole in the center of the breech face), but also had a rimfire striker when that ammunition was used. Fewer than 10,000 of these were made between the Moore’s Patent Fire Arm Company and National Fire Arm Company. Per Flayderman, many are believed to have been thrown away based on the inherent weakness in the curve of the walnut stock.

This specimen is in overall good condition. The barrel has a dark patina. The markings are clear. Serial numbers match. The Williamson is known for a weakness in the curve of the stock. This one has been repaired. The bore is in good condition. The action is fair.

This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 2-1/2 inches in length.

Caliber: .41 rimfire AND .41 percussion

Bore is in good condition. The firing mechanism is fair.

Overall condition as seen in photos.

This pistol is in form much like the percussion Deringers that Henry Deringer himself made, but the technology was changing and Williamson was there to bridge the gap.
