Stevens Arms was an American firearms manufacturer founded by Joshua Stevens in 1864 in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The company introduced the .22 Long Rifle round and made a number of rifle, shotgun, and target pistol designs. The target pistols were simple in design but very effective on the range! It was a very popular model which was copied by Belgian and German manafacturers as well. Joshua Stevens produced three lines of single-shot tip-up target pistols named after contemporary gunmen.

  • Stevens-Lord No. 36 – named for Frank Lord, a prominent target shooter. Six hundred were produced from 1880 to 1886. The Lord model was produced in 8″, l0″, and 12″ length barrels; the sights were many different types, the best was adjustable to windage and elevation by micrometer type screws. Only about 3,500 of these were made from 1880-1911.
  • Stevens-Conlin No. 38 – named for James Conlin, owner of a Broadway Avenue shooting gallery in New York City. It was quite similar to the Lord model, with the exception that it had a shorter grip, for smaller hands.
  • Stevens-Gould No. 37 – named for Arthur Corbin Gould, a firearms expert and writer, was similar to the Conlin model, with this exception that it did not have the spur on the trigger.
