1892 - STEVENS "MAGAZINE" Cast Iron PEASHOOTER, Gun, Pistol - "Three Star Rarity" (***) ~ M2.1 - A NEAT Antique!





This is listed in Logan & Best's "Cast Iron Toy Guns And Capshooters" 1990, Page 90 as M2.1, "MAGAZINE", Date: 1892, Maker: STEVENS, Length: 7", Type: Multi-Shot, Double Action, PEA, Derringer Style. Other marking: PATENTED APRIL 26 1892.; MADE IN U.S.A.. This has a "Three Star", (***) rarity out of five.

Apparently, to use this 1892
STEVENS "MAGAZINE" Cast Iron PEASHOOTER, Gun, Pistol you load a number of peas (the ammunition) into the upper "magazine", which are held in the ready by the visible spring. Pulling back on the loop or ring-holed trigger engages an internal works or mechanism which is spring loaded, a pea drops down, and reaching a point disengages, propelling the projectile with force out the barrel...and repeat. This 112-year-old toy belongs in your cap gun collection.

(The only experience with peashooters, as a kid growing up was we bicycled to a little store in the next town. The owner kept hidden under the counter for sale special long straws and little cellophane bags of white peas. After our "contraband" purchase we cycled back towards home and would load several of them in our mouths at once and use our breath and tongue coordination to shoot them out the tube at each other, store windows, street signs, etc. They must have been banned because if the police in our town saw us shooting peas with them they would confiscate them! Smile!)

Bidder or Seller Feed Back

  • If you are a BIDDER and have any Negative Feed Back as a "NPB" (Non-Paying Bidder) for failing to send payment, confirm auctions, or make contact, causing seller claims for listing & final value fee credit from eBay...

  • If you are a SELLER and have any Negative Feed Back for non-shipment, excessive delay, no refund, no exchange, or over charge on S/H/I...

  • If you are a BIDDER or SELLER and your feed back history indicates you leave negative feed back comments that are obviously retaliatory, inflammatory, contain mean, nasty personal attacks...

  • If you don't intend to leave factual, truthful and honest comments to me then do not participate in my auction or listing!

  • The item description, pictures, my auction terms, etc. - your submission of any questions prior to your placing any bid - communication after the listing closes - confirming information with your name, address, item number and a timely payment will be essential to a successful transaction with POSITIVE FEED BACK for us both.

  • I believe ALL problems that may arise in a transaction can be resolved through direct, post-auction communication or mediation by a third party such as SquareTrade.



I will not deliberately, or knowingly make an item picture or description mistake. I want you to be completely satisfied with your treasure, but there will be NO REFUNDS for "bidder's remorse". Please ask your questions BEFORE entering your bid. If you need clarification, want to know more about the item, shipping, etc. e-mail PRIOR to entering into the bidding so I can respond, modify the description, send a picture, or link you to other pictures at
