Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


For sale is an 1890 Cast Iron "SNAP" Cap Gun made by Stevens - J&E Stevens Co.; Cromwell, Conn.

The cap gun is given a **(2 star) rating according to the Logan and Best Guide on page 137. See the photo on page 137 - variation 1 of the SNAP model is shown above which is a one star rarity while variation 2 of this gun is a 2 star due to the patent information located on the grip of the gun rather than the barrel as shown on variation 1.

The cap gun is in excellent condition. The details are brilliant with minimal surface wear. Hammer cocks and snaps with ease. There is no visible cracks or damage to the piece - this is a really great example and a must have for the collector!

Dimensions Approx - Length - 4" x 2 3/8" x 3/4"
Weighs Approx - 2 OZ

This item is sold AS IS and returns will not be accepted. All sales are final.

Absolutely love this lamp! Although it's a delicate item, it was packed with extreme care and came in perfect condition. Moreover, AJ was incredibly nice and patient with all my many questions before the purchase. Thank you so much!
