This is a cool little pistol that isn't often encountered. This is the Eben T. Starr Patent single shot Deringer pistol. They are built on a frame very similar to the Starr pepperbox but they are much tougher to find. This is the pattern that is known to collectors as the 5th model. According to Flayderman, there were only 800 of these Starr patent Deringers made. They were produced from 1864 until 1869 by the Merrill Patent Firearms Company in Baltimore, Maryland. The barrels are designed to fire rimfire cartridges of .41 rimfire caliber. They have the single barrel measuring 2 3/4ths inches in length. The barrels were factory blued with fixed front bead sight that is still intact. On the left hand side of the frame is still marked "STARR'S PAT'S / MAY 10, 1864." These guns were designed with a silver-plated brass frame and this one retains a superb amount of the original silver. These guns have the firing pin design and this one works just as it should. It has the correct original checkered button trigger. On the handle of the gun it has the original 2-piece ceckered walnut grip panels. This is a fine and complete Starr Patent single shot Deringer.
