    Default Leinad Derringers

    Does anybody have andy leads on the Saturday Night specials that you could buy in the back of Shotgun News? You bought the parts and then built and welded your own sideplates. I know some think they are crap but I would love to get my hands on a couple of them for recreational research.

    there has been discussion on the derringers from Leinad (daniel spelled backwards) on one of the yahoo groups. I'll see if I can find the exact group name for this. When did they stop advertising shotgun news? I remember seeing there ads last year if I remember right. If you could buy one - are you looking for a particular barrel set up or will any do?

    From what I remember," Et Cetera" was the ex wife of the guy who owned RPB. But that is just what I had heard.

    There were actually a couple of different companies in TN that sold derringer kits. From what I recall the companies were all owned by relatives.
    The yahoo group is gunkitbuilders http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gunkitbuilders/ and they have info there about leinad and other deringer stuff.

    I put one of these POS together, used a welding jig made by Lee tool to do it. It is a crude, ill designed and probably dangerous hunk of sh*t. It is better suited to a fishing weight than a firearm. The lock up is only a flimsy roll pin held with a friction fit. I have not dared fire the dog because of the faulty lock up system it has. The breech plate is nothing more than an approx 1/16 piece of sheet steel, it is a real pig. BTW If you have not guesed it, I don't like it!

    IIRC, the breechplate needs to be brazed on to the kit.
