This is a reproduction of the extremely rare Remington Rider Single Shot Derringer pistol. Small pistols suitable for indoor practice were called "Parlor Pistols". The smallest of the pistols produced by Remington between 1860 and 1863 in only two hundred examples, in caliber .177" (4,5 mm). The pistol is of steel construction, available with polished white or case hardened finish as well as having an optional wood case available for one or two psitols, which has brass box for caps. The Deluxe version, with white finish, features a rich scroll engraving. On the grip there are a series of crossed lines giving a checkering effect. Like the original, the pistol fires a .177" (4,5 mm) ball using only a percussion cap and no black powder charge. For short range it is powerful, accurate and fairly quiet, making it suitable for indoor use. A .177" (4,5 mm) ball is placed into the breech plug small tube (which is capped) inserted against the barrell. The hammer fires a #11 cap which exples the ball.
