Most of these are swing barrel pistols- the barrel swings to one side.

BEING CAREFUL TO POINT THE MUZZLE IN A SAFE DIRECTION- draw the hammer back to the half-cock notch. Grasp the top of the barrel (keeping fingers OFF the muzzle) and swing the muzzle to the left. The rear (breech) should swing to the right. The extractor should pull the cartridge out of the chamber partially- pull it out with your fingers.

IF YOU HAVE LITTLE EXPERIENCE WITH GUNS, DO NOT TRY THIS. Most gunsmiths will unload a firearm for little or nothing. Call one (they are in the phone book) wrap the pistol in newspaper, put it in a box, and take it to them.

I have the same firearm I belive, I have fired Remington .22 short rounds. Mine has a slight problem with having to strike twice to set the round off He Actually Hates It! I also have one and it also has to strike twice to fire. Or it did. A gunsmith "improved" it to where it now requires 4 strikes to fire. You can get some parts as it is a copy of a Colt. Google "butler derringer parts".
