Here is a 2013 sale for a MS derringer. It went for $165 in fair condition after being listed for almost a year. Unless your gun is in much better shape it's worth about $165.

Here is another MS derringer in good condition that went for $250.

What about dependability? Have you heard anything? Misfires etc?

They were made of zinc, with steel parts. Not a particularly high quality gun.

Pretty simple unit, if it works on some test shots your probably pretty likely to get it to fire when you need it. Dependable to about 6', much further and your better off running away.

Hard to believe they sell used for that much because they were only about $60 new.
