    Hi,

    So I I was given this incomplete kit yesterday and I was wondering if anyone knows what it is? I'm planning on buying the trigger assembly and side plate this week, I know the lock is a L & R manton model# 1700P and I'm getting the manton side plate; but I don't know what this thing is, or what trigger to get, I know it's a .45 cal percussion cap and that's about it.

    Do you know if Dixie would have all those? And the pistol is at least a foot long, were Lincoln derringers that big?

    Might have a trigger and triggerplate,the sideplate could be cut from sheet brass or steel,screws might be a problem if the holes are stripped on the lockplate,but it could be re tapped one size up,Looks like a very well done base for building a Mang style target pistol.What caliber does it appear to be?
