Deringer Philadelphia

One classics of gun history, becoming a true icon for its small dimensions and for its self defence role. When John Henry Deringer (1786-1868) opened his firearms factory in the 1806 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he could not imagine that one of his creation could have the success that inspired so many other guns producers until the beginning of 1900. Deringer’s pocket pistols renown infamously increased towards the end of its production period due to a tragic fact of American history. A similar pistol, in fact, was found in one of the Ford theatre’s boxes in Washington, where on the evening of the 14th of April 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was deadly injured by John Wilkes Booth.
