This was a small, sleek gun of considerable power and accuracy. This is a single piece, but Henry Deringer (originally from Germany, the name Deringer is a parody of «Thüringer», meaning «from Thuringia») frequently sold the guns as cased pairs, or even sets of four. It was much faster to draw another gun than to reload. A pair of Deringers in the trouser pockets and a Bowie knife in the tail coat pocket completed the ensemble of the well dressed gambler, lawyer or congressman of the 1840s. John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln with a very similar piece.
