I just don't see any of these--the monstrosity from Standard or even the fantasy guns--taking the place of Hillberg's COP 357 derringer. 

These things were like a Mossberg Brownie that grew up, or a sawed-off Lancaster.  Striker-fired DA, 4 shots, and at one time custom-made speedloaders were actually available (from a guy in Nevada IIRC).   Weight was around 28-30 ounces, and nicely balanced for use as a skull-cracker.  Carried nicely in a coat pocket too. 

I had one for a while, it was actually much better than the press reports would have you believe.  Infinitely better than the High Standard derringer it replaced. 

Edited to add: I think, since it was used in Blade Runner, it would qualify for the Space Aliens Shooting Society.

Edited again to ask, "Why does everyone want to shoot Aliens?  Are we running out of Cowboys??"

I am going to preface this post, by saying that I like a challenge. That out of the way, I was asked to make a holster for the doubleshot Thunderstruck. Going to sit down with the man tomorrow, to discuss his wants. I have on numerous occasions, have said that I can make a holster for any gun.

Time to see if that is true.

From my post on page 5, Feb 15th I mentioned the result is pretty well complete.  I've even traded for the borrowed Uberti finger lever.  I thank all ya'll for the help.  Here's the post:
Folks, I've had LOTS of fun, and I've learned more than I ever expected to learn about these toggle link type lever action rifles.  Ya'll have really been a BIG help - both with encouragement and shared knowledge. The lever is a borrowed Uberti finger lever a fine Cowboy on this site loaned me until my Uberti finger lever that's on backorder is delivered.  Anyway, here's the result.

I've posted these before.  The 7 1/2" 45 Colt is a 1901 model and left the factory as a 4 3/4" 38-40.  It would be wild if this was part of a matched pair with yours!  (s/n is 2110xx).  I've put almost 2900 rounds through it, mostly at CAS matches.  Not really sure how well it groups.  :)  But a lot of clean matches (a lot easier today than it used to be).

The long-flute 32-20 from 1915 belongs to my brother, but he has never shot it.  I've put over 1000 rounds through it.

I shoot the two together about once a year now, and the .45 will get shot at least once more with a Cimarron antique model that looks the same.

Yahoody, the top one appears to be ivory.  What is the second one?  Looks good.  What does "FSS" mean?  I know it's not Factory Short Stroke.  :D
