PostSubject: HWS Double Derringer kit.   Fri Oct 21, 2011 11:04 am

Hello Friends,

I came back for a little review about the HWS Double Derringer, kit version.
I have to say, I have already assemble it and even paint it !
Yes, now, I paint my kits. It's not too hard and the result is much beautiful.
Let's go!


1 / The box :


Ok, the box is very little because, like you know, the Derringer is a tiny model gun.



We find :
- the kit
- a loading tool
- 2 cartridges
- A user's manual (soon in the instructions on this forum).





2 / The look :


This model gun is really tiny and its look is cool. You can put easily in your wife's hand bag Smile
Only the plastic grips are not very good. Maybe I can find wood ones.










3 / In action :

It's really a simple operation :
Turn the part on the right of the gun, you can now open the barrel. Put the 2 carts in it, close the barrel. Ready to fire.
It's of course a simple action so you have to pull the hammer to be ready to fire.
Push the trigger and BANG (very very loud )and pull the hammer a second time and BANG !! That's all.

The noise is incredibly loud for the size of this gun.











4 / The carts

We have 2 cars, really simple, with only 2 parts :
- the top
- the body





The difficulty is to remove the cap, you have to use a little tool like a screwdriver or tweezers.



5 / To conclude.

Ok, it's a very little review but there is no too much to say about this model gun. We can say it's a tiny toy gun, very simple but with a big noise ! The assemble is easy but it's better with little fingers Smile
At last, like you can see in the photo, the paint is quite enough well made. Ok it's not perfect but it's better than the original color kit, no?

Bye

Sorry I missed your post Momocampo - I just noticed it!

Well done again - I think your review is most excellent!
Particularly about the cartridges!

You may have seen my review of an MGC all-metal Derringer - but I don't have any cartridges to test fire it, so there was no way I could include it: http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t2899-mgc-frontier-derringer Sad

I wonder if your cartridges would fit my model Derringer? Question

Does anyone have info on that subject?

Hello Kiwi,

I don't know if your carts can fit but maybe I can take measures and tell you.
You don't have any cart for your Derringer?

I also missed this review Embarassed but I'm glad I found it now Very Happy

Your painted finish looks very effective Momo', which type of paint did you use please Question

I can imagine that such a short barrel would produce a good loud BANG Wink There's no blowback either allowing all the cap's power to vent forwards without obstruction. Is there any noticeable muzzle flash Question Marushin caps would probably vent several sparks from the muzzle, do MG caps show a good yellow / white flash at all Question This could be a great one for adding a little Magnesium powder to the cartridge... that should produce excellent Flash as well as giving a slightly louder and deeper Bang

BTW, just for a bit of fun I found and added some Gun related smilies to the list available. There are more again at the bottom of the list if you scroll down Wink

Hi Cerwyn,

Yes, the bang is loud. The sparks too.
For the paint, I used Tamyia spray can mat black (TS6). It's quite easy to do if you take your time. The important thing is to paint always in the same way and do a "sweep" left to the right (or right to the left ). I hope you understand...
Anyway, I did that on all my kits and I think the result is really pretty good.

OK let'gooooooooooo

Thanks for the info about Tamiya spray paint, it does look very good in your photos. Have you tried their "Gunmetal" colour paint Question

I don't know this "gunmetal" paint. Could you give me the reference please?
Is it the paint which called "metal"?

Tamiya TS-38 Gun Metal:
http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/list/spray.htm

Other manufacturers have similar paints, some are more black, some more silver.

ok, but I don't think the result is good. In french the translate is "gris acier" means steel grey.
The pistols are more black than grey. Ant the silver ones are more shiny than this "gun metal", maybe another manufacturer use a black.

Yeah, this is confusing name.

"Gun metal" I have seen (Tamiya, Humbrol) is usually fairly grey/silver indeed, more similar to steel colour than gun finish.
I use it to imitate bare metal only - agreed that matt black looks just much better on a gun model.
