This is another one that I picked up at the auction this weekend. It's a J Stevens Tip-Up in .22 LR. They made several models of these but I think this one is an Offhand No. 35. This model was made from 1923-1942. In 1929 they change to a stamped trigger guard like this one has. Based on the serial no. I think this one is from the early 30's. I need to find some grip screws for it. I doubt they used socket head screws back then.

Back then pistol matches were shot offhand...standing with one hand, no supporting hand was used. These were not an expensive guns. There was a target version with an adjustable rear sight.

I need to start going to auctions. I like old guns and younger women. Well I did anyway. Seriously there is something special about guns that our GrandPa,s had.

This one belonged to trick-shot master, Annie Oakley. It's part of the (publishing magnate) Robert E. Peterson Colletction, and one of the "Crown Jewels" at the NRA Museum.

That’s pretty cool, about as basic as it gets.
