Re: Stevens pistol ID
Welcome to TFF!
That is a really neat little pistol!
Here's what I found:
It is a Stevens Diamond No. 43 ; !st or 2nd issue (can't tell from the pics).
The 1st; 1886-1886
The 2nd; 1896-1916
.22 short; .22LR; for both; the 2nd issue also shot .22 Stevens-Pope (?).
Spur trigger; 6"or !0" barrel.
John E. Traisters' book; Antique Guns; shows this little gun as valued @ $140-$290.
