The Derringer-4 can be easily modified to a wide number of alternate calibers, by simply replacing the barrel and breech assemblies with one of the appropriate caliber. Excellent high-powered concealable firepower. The extra width of the 4-barrel design makes it slightly less concealable than a comparable 2-barrel derringer, but most argue that the extra two barrels (and thus shots) more than make up for the added bulk.

Territorial Arms J30 +0 x20 10m 0 6 $850/20 1.5kg 3+ 5.56x45mm

Another runner-up for the way-too-powerful handgun category. The Territorial Arms J30 seeks to occupy the same market niche as the Asagiri Member II. The J30 is a rare specialty pistol, typically chambered in the common 5.56x35mm (.223 Remington) cartridge. Although it uses a substantially "lighter" cartridge than the Member II's 7x48mm, the J30 retains much more controllability, as well as a substantially larger standard capacity (6+1, vs the Member II's 3+1). The J30 utilizes a novel gas-retarded blowback mechanism as well as a heavily ported barrel to help diminish recoil forces and increase firer comfort. The J30 also utilizes a barrel specially rifled for the SS109/M139 5.56mm cartridge to help stabilize the bullet.

A autofire-capable variant is also rumored to be under development (ROF 1, $1000). Extended 10- and even 20-round magazines are also currently available ($35 and $50).
