Best Answer

A pocket pistol made by gunsmith Henry Derringer. The gun was a single-shot, black powder muzzle loader. It was six inches total in length with a 2 1/2" barrel and fired a .44-calibur bullet. The gun was found on the floor of the theater box where Lincoln sat. Booth also carried a large knife with which he stabbed one of Lincoln’s companions, Major Henry Rathbone, in the arm before Booth jumped from the box to escape.
