High Standard 22 Magnum Derringer as long as it is as clean as the seller says I will do the Dros. at around 5 today.

Nice find.

I had one for a few years back in the early 70's when they first came out. Pretty stiff trigger naturally, but accurate enough for close social work.

It was by far the absolute loudest handgun I've ever shot though! Put your hearing protection on prior to torching that baby off for the first time!

That's a cool looking little shooter you have there Tom.....

I found this website a few years back when I bought my HS 22lr revolver. Look up the model it is and the manufacturer date will be next to it.

High Standard Revolvers-----The link states revolvers, but it will take you to the derringers...

Nice looking Derringer Tom, my brother in law had one just like it about 40 years ago.

This oneI think was made between 1975 and 84 I think it is a type three.
I believe American Derringer produces what used to be High Standard now.

I have one. Like Rick said, it is LOUD. It also gives your hand a fairly good jolt when you touch one off. I carried mine with snake shot while on backpacking trips. My wife uses it now with Gold Dot ammo.
