Vintage Stevens Model 43 Diamond Tip-Up .22 Pistol is Quite a Shooter [VIDEO]

This Stevens Model 43 Diamond .22 pistol is a sweet piece of history.

This little vintage tip-up single shot pistol still shoots true in its old age.

Watch as this little beauty barks once more out on the gun range.

Now, that is a little beauty. The Stevens Model 43 Diamond .22 pistol looks sharp with its nickel frame and blued barrel.

Chambered in the .22 long rifle cartridge, this six-inch barreled pistol was a favorite of gallery shooters and rode along on many traplines over the decades.

This pistol has not been made since 1916. How many 100-year-old items still work as well as they did when they were made? This vintage pistol sure does.

That is one classic piece of Americana.
