Remington Zig-Zag derringer or Elliott's Pocket Revolver, serial # 326, caliber .22 short, made 1861 - 1862, in fine condition and good working order. Not much of the bluing left. which is rather common. Original grips. Flayderman's 5E-035: less than 1,000 made, Remington's first handgun designed for metallic cartridges.  The zig-zag nickname comes from the odd guide grooves on the rear of the cylinder/barrel group. Many have been lost or destroyed leaving only few to fill their place in any advanced Remington collection. This example has standard markings and features.    $6,250.

A long time ago I read, that one of the Mauser brothers worked at the time at Remington. Returning home he developed the 1878 Zig-Zag revolver.
