    Up for grabs is this fine example of the gun makers art. As long as the gun makers is blind and uses a rusty hacksaw on scrap.

    This is a .451 calibre single barrel black powder derringer. I've looked it over and it's solid and nothing is broken. But it's a Cobray so it's crude. Its got some white stuff in the details of the grips.

    I've not gotten to shoot it because no powder but it will pop a cap just fine.

    $40 ftf in Reidsville area, will ship at cost.

    It doesn't. It's literally just the box with a picture on it and the derringer, no info.

    It shouldn't be too hard to work one up, maybe use a conservative reduction on the info for the double barrel version.

    Percussion caps. The ones I had for the Hawken (#11?) fit but were very snug
