5) Remington Over-Under Double Derringer, also known as the Model 95 Remington Derringer.

All had 3” round superposed barrels that tip upward for loading or extraction of fired cases. The barrels were locked in place for firing by a rotating lever on the right side of the frame.

Elliot, the Double Derringer became the best and most widely known and recognized of American cartridge derringers of the latter half of the twentieth century.
