I recieved a Derringer .22 lr pistol shortly after my mother passed away. it is an over and under double barrel. it looks like it is in great shape but only the bottom barrel will fire. i took a closer look and noticed the hammer does not hit the upper fireing pin. does anyone have info on where to purchase new parts for this gun? any help will be greatly appreciated.

I've not been here very long
but long enough to know these
men and women will answer any
question you ask, even if they
don't know what they're talkin'
about.
Seriously, I don't know ANYTHING
about Deringers. I do strongly
urge you to take it to a gunsmith
and have it looked over anyway
just for safety sake.

as far as gunsmithing

it would cost you more than the gun is probably worth. Derringer's are a dime a dozen.

If he uses it and it comes
unglued in his hand it would
have been well worth asking
a g-smith to have a look.

you are right

all im saying is ,you can get a Derringer for about 100 bucks on any aution site.but if he has to shoot that very one then by all means ,take it to a pro.

If the manufacturer is still in business, call them and
they'll probably fix it for much less than a local gunsmith,
maybe even free.
