    Does anyone have any idea about this;
    My friend has what appears to be a very, very old target pistol.
    It is stamped J. Stevens and bears the serial # 3400 followed by an (I) in a circle. It sort of looks like a "luger", but with a very long barrel (9 1/2").
    The gun is very primative appearing and the hammer is a pull-pin on the back above the grip.
    If anyone has any information or knowledge about this weapon it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You
    Joe

    Pictures would be a big help, but it sounds like you have a Stevens Target No 10 Pistol. Looks like an automatic but is a single shot.
    They made 7131 of them between 1919 and 1933.

    Thank You Jim,
    I will get some pictures taken right away and get them posted.
    In the mean time.... I would surely enjoy hearing some of those thoughts and opinions about the Stevens you mentioned. Do you have any idea what it might be worth?

    Thank You
    Joe

    Unusual.
    The barrel is longer than standard, you say 9 1/2", Flayderman's book says 8".
    The sling swivel is certainly an add-on, maybe the barrel is a replacement. I know of no way to check it out, Stevens does not have the old records that Colt and Smith do.
    I shot one a little bit about 1960, thought a single shot pistol was kind of dull.
    One turns up at a gun show every now and then.
    There is a very nice one on Gunsamerica.com for $395 ASKING price.

    Yours is more worn and has been altered, so figure a lower dollar value.
