Great Single Shot Target Pistol w/Heavy Bull Barrel
Here we present a J. Stevens Arms Company Offhand No. 35 Single Shot Tip-up Pistol, made circa 1923-1942 in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts with a total production of 43,000. The Stevens Model 35 pistol was a gun made for shooting back in the early part of the 1900s, and continues to defy its age. This little single shot pistol was chambered is either .22 rimfire, .22 centerfire, or .25 Stevens calibers (and the rarer .410 shotgun cartridge) and were the favorite of sportsmen and target shooters of yesteryear.
The Stevens Model 35 is an amazingly strong single shot pistol with a tip down barrel to load model. While actual manufacturing dates are quite murky on these models, many are pushing a century of service as small game getters and target shooters. Some of these Models 35s came with a detachable shoulder stock and termed “bicycle guns” because they were light and handy and perfect for bringing along on your country bicycle trip for small game and plinking. This pistol has a heavy bull barrel, making the balance of this pistol great in the hand.
The overall condition is good. Refinished. This pistol was likely originally chambered in .32 rimfire and was converted to .22 Long Rifle by being sleeved. Barrel has also gotten a later target front sight. The action is strong. The bore is bright with sharp rifling. The grips are smooth and solid.
