English: A Philadelphia Deringer is a small percussion handgun designed by Henry Deringer (1786-1868) and produced from 1852 through 1968. A popular handgun of the era, this design was widely copied by competitors, sometimes down to the markings. Over time, the misspelling "derringer" has come to refer to any small-sized, usually large-caliber handgun that is neither semiautomatic nor a revolver.
