What's the deal with the .22 Derringers? Don't know much about them but they appear to be pretty cheap. 125-175. A lot of them out there? History please.

I have a Colt "Lord" Model derringer. It's chambered for the .22 Short. It was given to me by my brother-in-law who obrained it in a big box of shooting/handloading items. It was in it's wood case and had been fired. I fired it some more. The extractor won't work. The barrel appears to be some sort of plated pot metal with a liner within it and a blue finish. That's all I know about them.

I have the Lord/Lady cased set. I was able to obtain them pretty cheap @ auction, top book value not very high. But cute little pieces that fit well in the collection.

My memory was they were made in the early 1960's. Checked the Blue Book and it shows manufacture between 1959-1963 with 112,000 made. (NOT RARE) Then, the book lists some that were made in the early 1970's (70-73). Learned something if the BB is correct. I have one set; Lord and Lady. My favorite is a copy of the No. 3 that is in lucite. I have it on my desk and look at it all the time. Good conversation piece and a bit of a collector's item in its own right.
