Colt Third Model Derringer aka "Thuer"

.41RF, 2.5" barrel, S/N 12739. Nickel finish, case hardened hammer, fire blued trigger and screws, mother-of-pearl grips. Top of barrel with - COLT - marking, left side of frame marked 41 CAL.


Very fine. Retains most of the nickel finish with some loss at the muzzle and beech. All markings crisp and clear. Hammer, trigger and screws all retrain much of their finish. Mechanically functional, good bore with some scattered pitting. Mother-of-pearl grips fine, fit well and show some nice age and if not factory original are probably period. A really great little Thuer derringer in a wonderful state of preservation.

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500
