Only 1,200 US Model 1842 Navy Percussion Pistols were manufactured by Henry Deringer of Philadelphia circa 1842-1847; the first percussion pistols manufactured and delivered under government contract; an example of a Standard model 1842 Deringer pistol with deeply rifled, seven-groove barrel. Experts believe that Deringer manufactured fewer than 200 rifled Standard Model 1842 Navy pistols. The lock plate is stamped "U.S./DERINGER/PHILADELa" below the hammer. Brass post front sight; integral fixed rear sight on the tang. The barrel is bright; hammer retains 97% bright blue; lockplate retains approximately 80% case hardened color fading to smoky gray. Brass barrel band, trigger guard and round buttcap. The walnut stock displays a dry and uniform surface with good color. Contours are mostly sharp. Action is tight and smooth. This type was historically and technically important as it was/is the first handgun produced for the U.S. government having a rifled barrel
