It comes packaged with two Micro Darts.
The blaster itself has a very tiny handle and firing trigger, suitable only for small hands. The priming mechanism is similar to that of a Nite Finder EX-3, though with a minor difference in that this is able to flip up and down.. It also features an area on the priming handle to attach the blaster to a keychain, although this frequently pops out of place when priming the blaster, causing difficulties when priming. This problem can easily be solved by pushing it back into place. All of these qualities are mirrored with the similarly-sized Tek 3.
The Derringer is the smallest blaster in the Air Blasters line and the only one not to be released in North America. This blaster was only released in India, and did not receive a worldwide release. As a pocket blaster, it has been released in many different blaster sets, including a double pack and a quadruple pack. It is unknown why the Derringer was not released anywhere outside of India, as it is the only country-exclusive Buzz Bee blaster. Because of its limited release, very little information is known about the blaster, including its year of release.
This blaster was not re-released under the Air Warriors line in 2011. It was released to no major announcement in 2010. Because of this, it is assumed that the blaster has been dropped from future plans.
The Derringer has been released with the following color schemes:
- Green and orange (design one)
- Yellow and orange (design one)
- Green and orange (design two)
- Yellow and orange (design two)
Reloading and firing
To reload the Derringer, simply insert one dart into the front barrel of the blaster. The dart cannot fit all the way into the blaster and will protrude out somewhat. Pull back the priming handle to prime the blaster.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
- The Derringer is one of the smallest blasters ever produced; it is smaller than the Jolt EX-1, Reflex IX-1, Secret Strike AS-1, Tek 3, Stealth Shot, and other comparably-sized blasters.
- Due to its small size, it is possible to be dual-wielded.
