Lot 434
Set of Four J. Stevens Tip-Up Pistols
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Late 19th-early 20th century, all with partial octagonal barrels (3.5 to 10.25 in.) marked on the left flat, and walnut grips. Lot includes three single-shot .22 caliber pistols, two with spur triggers, and a .32 caliber target pistol with brass frame and spur trigger. Because pistols of this sort were manufactured well into the 20th century, transfer will have to go through an FFL dealer.

Private Collection, Charlotte, NC

Verbal history states that these pistols were used by a female performer in a Wild West show.

All functioning properly; bores need cleaning after long storage; unknown if metal finishes are original; some light wear to grips.
