According to the write up on the Cherry's Fine Guns website, it's named the Zimmer pistol:

Quote:
Zimmer
4.5mm Caliber Percussion

Reproduction of Belgian pistol that features an walnut stock with traditional fluted grip, enriched with a typical metal buttcap. Provided with front and rear sights, it is produced with round barrel and color case hardened frame. Weight 1.1 lbs.

Of similar interest is that Pedersoli also makes a 4.5 mm training barrel for their Napolean LePage target pistol which are produced in calibers .31, .36, .44 and .45 smooth bore:

And Pedersoli also made their fixed barrel Saloon target pistol in .36 and 4.5 mm, which has a box lock action and grip shape somewhat similar to the Zimmer but with a heavier round barrel.

Cabela's also seems to have discontinued selling their latest production of a parlor pistol which was a short barreled Derringer type that used 209 shotgun primers.
But they were also selling a parlor rifle percussion cap model for a while. I saw one on clearance at my local Cabela's which probably indicates that it has also been discontinued. I recall reading that some folks thought that it was underpowered and somewhat more difficult to load small pellets into the longer barrel.
