This is a 1/2 scale “Southener” single shot pistol or derringer by the legendary Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, Mexico, probably made from the mid 1940’s to the mid 1960’s. 1 7/8″ long overall with a 15/16″ octagon barrel of .125 caliber. Chambered for the 2mm thick rim rimfire cartridge. Blue steel barrel, hammer, trigger, & screws. Brass frame, backstrap, & front sight. Finely checkered hammer spur, the hammer with both half & full cock. The top of the barrel expertly hand engraved “SOUTHENER”. The left side of the barrel also similarly engraved “MERRIMACK ARMS & MFG CO, NEWBURYPORT MASS., PATENTED APRIL 9, 1897” in three lines. Two piece walnut grips with brass escutcheons and a single screw on each side. Excellent near mint condition. This is the first one of these I have ever seen in 1/3 scale! Price Reduced: $950.00.
