    ***SOLD***
    Manufacturer: American Derringer
    Model: DA9
    Caliber: 9mm
    Build Material: Stainless steel
    Condition: Excellent
    Price: $425 obo

    This is the extremely hard to find 9mm version of the American Derringer double action DA9 derringer. You can find the occasional .38spl model but the 9mm is hard to come by. This gun is in exceptionally good condition.

    Took the pic on the spur of the moment. Didn't have time for special lighting or backgrounds.

    I have gotten a couple offers, but when I look online and realize mine is like the only one anywhere for sale it makes me want to keep it.

    If I were you I'd keep it -- you're never going to find another one, and leastwise until the Double Tap finally hits the shelves, it is a fantastic and unique option for a backup gun IMHO. I have a High Standard .22 Magnum DA derringer, which is the original version of the same gun, and I love it. It lives in my boot, always with me.

    If PlayboyPenguin was in Oregon I'd already snag it...but I'm lazy. :)

    Price reflects rarity...

    I wanted one of those Heizer guns until I saw one. They are HUGE and uncomfortable to hold. Plus, the cheapest one is $500 and they go up to $800.

    I haven't held one of the Double Taps yet. . . I'm hoping it will replace my High Standard .22 Mag, because .45 ACP -- 'nough said :) Plus the roller bearing DA trigger is supposed to be pretty awesome. . . they are billing it as super slim and light. How does it compare with a J-frame size-wise?

    p.s. Heizer isn't making them anymore -- the inventor switched to a different manufacturer, hence the delay.

    Every once in while I run into guns for sale and am so glad they are on the other side of the river. Very cool piece.

    The recoil isn't bad, but if you have larger hands it is not comfortable to hold.
