About the Handgun:
The Model 1 series is based on the Remington over/under design patented by William Elliot in 1865. The frame and barrel block are stainless steel.
About the Manufacturer:
Established in the early 1980s, this gunmaking business has offered an extensive range of two-shot derringers based on the Remington Double Derringer, as well as the latest incarnation of the Semmerling pistol design.
About the Cartridge:
Developed by Smith & Wesson and introduced along with its Military & Police Model revolver in 1902, this was originally a military cartridge intended to replace the unsatisfactory .38 Long Colt then in use by the Army. Colt brought out its own version of the .38 Special in 1909, which differs from the original only in bullet shape, being a flat-point style. The .38 Special is considered one of the best-balanced, all-round handgun cartridges ever designed. It is also one of the most accurate and very widely used for match shooting.
