    Does anyone know where I may source a modern BP big bore derringer something like a Bond arms or american derringer in .45 or larger , x2 shot double barrel with a bit more 'POW' than a mini revolver.

    Something that runs on 209's and is proofed for nitro would be a bonus.

    Not looking for accuracy, just power:evil:

    Tha MANN makes these occasionally, screw off barrel single only, .60 AND .70 caliber, 209 primed with trigger cocking not double action cause there aint no sear for single action, its point and pull KA BOOM!

    Ya KNOWS ya touched off somethin with tha .70! Think one ounce cup point slug at 875 feet per second! Then again, whatever ya HIT aint movin much no more!

    Oh ya! He does a three shot revolver conversion ta .40 caliber on steel frame Remmie .31 pocket models and a .30 caliber three shot job on tha NAA .22 Magnum version cap&ball. With tha right loads, both'll crack sound barrier with somethin nasty.

    Just fer tha extra OOOMPF! And cause he CAN and he LIKES redefinin limits!
