Remington Double Derringer

Highlighting an iconic little pistol with an extra punch. On today's Curator's Corner, John Popp talks to Phil Schreier, Curator of the National Firearms Museum, about the Remington Double Derringer. This .41-caliber rim-fire pocket pistol, designed by William H. Elliott from Henry Deringer's classic model, was produced from 1866 to 1935, and roughly 150,000 have been made. Schreier points out that it is extremely powerful in comparison to a typical .22-caliber pocket pistol, but is not recommended for shooting with modern gunpowder. Originally aired on 7/16/2009.
