I'm so exited and happy to share with you my friends my last video. This was filmed yesterday and I tried to make it a bit shorter than my previous 4 videos posted last year.

It was a beautiful day here in NJ and didn't have to go to work. Did my chores at home and about noon time to hunt !



Like always, I have no clue about what I found but also know I can count on you to solve the mystery !

My first thought was a Derringer 45. But what you got is much longer than that.
Also super creepy that fork and butter knife tied together.

Don't know about the gun, but the other thing seems to be scored all the way around to take a string line perhaps?

Cool finds!

Do you use anything fancy to clean them up?

I have had great success in cleaning ancient roman and viking artifacts by soaking them in strong vinegar, then metalbrush and needles, after its rust free i melt paraffin candles and boil the items in it, after some buffing with a cloth, i then store them in nice boxes, they have remained rust free for about ten years.

Classic "Saturday Night Special". American Derringer model DA-38 pistol. .38 special caliber. Correction, actually I think it's a High Standard Derringer in .22 magnum. Trigger guard has been broken off behind the trigger. Yes, it's real.

Second item looks to me like a shoe form (not sure of the correct name for this) like what a cobbler would use to form a shoe upper around.

ETA - There is no forward trigger guard on either of these pistols, that's why they look funny. Both the American Derringer and the High Standard look similar, but I'm pretty sure the one you found is a High Standard. The HS Derringer was manufactured from 1962-1984, when American Derringer bought the patent. Judging by the corrosion and rust I'd say it's been in the water longer than since 1984, making it almost surely a HS.

I think the second item is part of a old anchor.

The one thing looks like the tooth off of a bucket from a front end loader. I have them on my tractor bucket, but the shape of that one is different than the ones I put on, that seems to be a flatter kind. They can have a peg then are bolted on farther inward. I just welded mine on instead of using the brackets.

They throw guns into the river or lake when they kill someone with them. It probably has the serial numbers ground off of it.

I actually don't like to clean my finds 100%. I think they lose the "old charm" if too clean. Just brushes, hand soap and sometimes peroxide.

So far I'm happy with your gun ID. I'll add that info. Thanks !

I posted that info on the video comments section and thanked you Flyingclaydisk !

Could be. I need to search for a photo that matches that item.

Yes, that's why I called that spot "Gun Cemetery". Pretty sure there are more there. I need a stronger magnet maybe.

Haha awesome. I'd never heard of people doing this till I saw a vid on youtube of a guy magnets fishing off a fishing pier. He got weird stuff, but mostly knives.

I so have to do this one day


Cheers!

You have a PM from me.

Please remove my moniker from your YT video comments.

I do NOT wish to be mentioned on YT.

Appreciated.

So, some of those guys that say they lost their guns in freak boating accidents weren't joking

Yes, I'll keep hunting. Last year I had to stop by the middle of summer due health problems. I'm back.
