Stevens No. 41 Tip-Up Derringer Pistol c 1864-1916

Stevens No. 41 Tip-Up derringer single shot pistol, serial number 23758. These distinctive .22 caliber “hide-out” pistols were made from 1864-1916. They found favor with anyone feeling the need for a small, easily concealable handgun. Often they were chosen as “back-up” firearms that could be easily carried and pulled into use should a primary, larger weapon become unserviceable or taken away. With its 3 ½” barrel, overall length of only 6 ½ inches and weight of merely a few ounces, the Stevens No. 41 derringer could be carried in any number of places by both male or female owners without feeling encumbered with a heavy weapon. This pistol is a later example, being manufactured just after the turn of the last century. The half-octagon barrel retains thinning original blue that has aged nicely with no evidence of cleaning or abuse. The entire frame and grip straps are factory nickel plated giving this pistol an attractive two-tone fancy appearance. The walnut grips fit perfectly and are in superb condition. The barrel to frame fit is extremely tight with no looseness or play. Additionally, the hammer spring is strong and the safety notch or “half-cock” holds solidly- many of these are worn and loose in these areas. The barrel top is clearly marked J STEVENS A & T CO. over CHICOPEE FALLS, MASS. U.S.A. A uniquely American derringer pistol from a time when it was common for men and women on both sides of the law to carry a small and light derringer pistol as an ordinary part of their daily apparel. This is a fine example of a scarce and historical weapon.Read more
