This is a very cool looking but still affordable pistol! It is an original single shot Deringer style pistol. This is the version that the books state would have been made about 1850 to 1860. This one fires a single bullet of about .38 caliber. It measures 6-1/2 inches in overall length with the barrel making up 2-3/4ths of those inches. The top of the barrel has the desirable "GILLESPIE CAST STEEL" retailer's mark still clearly visible. It also has the Gillespie mark on the lockplate. Gillespie is the mark of the New York firm of George D.H. Gillespie who was known to be a hardware merchant on Warren Street in New York City. You see quite a few of the regular Deringer pistols but only a very small amount of these survive. The action catches on both positions. The stock of the gun has a nice dark tone to the wood. It has the original silver triggerguard, grip cap and silver barrel pin covers intact. It isn't often that you get a chance at one of these Gillespie marked Deringers. This is a nice looking authentic Deringer style pistol with the desirable Gillespie mark.
