    Over the years traveling around the northwest, I have seen two guns at gun stores and don't know what they are. I'd like to get one. They were little pocket guns in .22lr, one in stainless steel, and one in blue and brass. They are similar .22 versions of the COP in .357 magnum, but size of an NAA arms single action .22. If anyone can tell me what they are, I'd thank you, so I can do the buy thing. Gotta get one for Christmas. :D

    My pappy had two of the old Mossberg Brownies but I don't recall him ever shooting them. I remember them being the first handguns he ever let me handle.


    Good times.

    Looks like they fire all four barrels at the same time?

    Brownies have a revolving firing pin or something and fire one barrel at a time IIRC. They were also the first gun mossberg ever made.

    Didn't American Derringer make something similar to the COP, but in .22lr or .22mag?

    Thanks fellas. It was not the Mossberg Brownie. I believe it was the Sharps derringer in .22 lr. I found a stainless one on the internet not for sale. There is another one identical to it in blue and a brass frame. The hammer cocks like a NAA mini revolver and has an exposed trigger like the same. Barrels slide forward to load/unload. Sweet pocket gun.

    I'd love to get a Sharps Pepperbox. My grandfather had an old, broken one & I always thought it'd be cool to have.

    Just got done working on my father in laws 4 barrel derringer, it's a copy of the Sharps pepperbox made out of brass and steel. It's pretty sweet, he lost one of the screws and I found one from numrichs and got it replaced. Shoots .22 short only. Made by Uberti from somewhere around 50's through the 70's...they show up on gun broker from time to time... his is from 1963, date is in roman numerals...
