STEVENS #10 .22 PISTOL GRIPS
War-work kept Stevens occupied until the Beginning of 1919, but the Target Model No 10 was announced in 1920. Though still a tip-down barrel single-shot design, the No. 10 had an exposed barrel and a rectangular receiver deliberately modeled on an automatic pistol. A barrel-release catch on the left side of the receiver was designed on a cam principle, drawing the barrel towards the standing breech as the action closed and automatically compensating for wear in the hinge bolt. A cocking plunger attached to the internal hammer protruded from the rear of the receiver. The No. 10 was made until 1933.
