Nick Nack Derringer

The Remington 1866 Derringer is a small pocket pistol manufactured by Remington Arms. The term "derringer" is a genericized misspelling of the last name of Henry Deringer, a famous 19th-century maker of small pocket pistols.

In the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), Nick Nack (Herve Villechaize) uses a .41 (rimfire) Remington Arms - U.M.C. over-and-under derringer (c.1910-1935). The weapon has a nickel-plated finish for its barrels and frame, blued hammer and spur trigger, and ivory grips.

In The Man with the Golden Gun, during the Thai boxing match scene, Nick Nack holds his Derringer on Bond, causing Bond to quip about the originality of "a gun in a bag of peanuts". In the 1965 novel The Man with the Golden Gun, Francisco Scaramanga also uses a gold plated derringer as his back up gun during the novel's climax, which also housed one bullet as with the film's custom golden gun.
