MGC “Frontier Derringer” Review
I recently acquired this fine all-metal MGC Derringer through a Forum member. As I have no cartridges for it yet, I can’t do a review of it shooting – but I am sure other reviews of other Derringers have covered that!



The only disappointment with this modelgun, is that the plastic grips are extremely aged and brittle – and the left hand side grip disintegrated completely when I attempted to slightly tighten the loose grips. 'Sad'
It was glued with an epoxy glue, but sometime soon I shall make some replacements – probably out of bone!
Like all Derringers it is very simple to operate -'jocolor'
To load: rotate the Breech locking pin 180 degrees and lift up the double barrels and load both chambers. Close the breech and return the pin to its original position.
To shoot: Cock the hammer, pull the trigger. Repeat. (The firing pin is actually a cam which re-aligns the hammer to discharge upper & lower chambers.)

To unload: Rotate the locking pin; lift the barrels; push the ejector slide button to remove the empty cases.

Then you can either re-load, or start cleaning!'cheers'
The photos speak for themselves. I gave the pistol a clean, a lube, tightened and adjusted some tension on the main lever cir-clip – and it all works fine!

This is a hard to get example of early MGC modelguns and I’m pleased to add it to my growing Western Collection.

Jeez it looks like this review was missed aswell.

I really need to take a closer look at these forums, rather than rush through them while I am at work.

Good job! Smile

Thanks Ozi -- these posts are easy to miss aren't they! Shocked

But at least they're here for posterity!
