The Traditions™ Philadelphia Derringer Pistol Kit is patterned after the original short-barreled pistol named after the inventor, Henry Derringer. The pistol comes in an easy to assemble kit with detailed assembly instructions. The Philadelphia Derringer Kit features a percussion coil lock, hand-crafted beechwood stock and 3 1/8″ octagonal barrel with 7/8″ flats. The Derringer Pistol is a closed breech single trigger pistol with blade front sights. The Philadelphia Derringer is compact at 7 1/8″ overall length and weighs only 2 1/4 lbs.
One of the best ways to get a real hands-on muzzleloading experience is to build it yourself! Easy to read instructions guide you through the building process to a finished product. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you built the rifle or pistol you enjoy shooting so much!
The Traditions™ Philadelphia Derringer is a .45 caliber with a 1:56 twist rate. The pistol’s 3 1/8″ octagonal barrel is tapered, starting at .750″ at breech to .700″ at muzzle. The Philadelphia Derringer comes with a white (non-blued) barrel and features blade sights for zeroing in on your target. The Traditions™ Black Powder Derringer is not only durable, but accurate and compact. Wedgeplates are not engraved.
