    I used to own one that was chambered for .45LC or .410 shot shells. It was as a novelty more than anything else. It was a hand full to shoot, but fun. I ended up trading it for something else I wanted more, but I kinda' wish I still had it...

    They do make one with a lightweight frame, if u get one that's the one to get. Them and the bond arm ones are just too heavy for what they r. I believe it's alloy metal.

    .44 Mag and it's definitely a novelty. I still have it but every type of bullet keyholes at 5 yds, doesn't matter it it's .44 mag, special or .44 colt, light, heavy or in-between.

    It seems like there's a black hole of info when it comes to American derringer. I've been looking it up and there's very little information about it. I like the idea of a simple little derringer for dog walking/patio cigar smoking, but I don't want a 23 ounce Bond arms dragging me down. I also don't want a super cheap, unreliable derringer. If bond made a lightweight model, I think they would be a market for it. Something like a 12-15 ounce, thin derringer in 38 or 9 mm.
