As gmd1950 said, talk of old .32s had me hankering after one. Iíve got plenty of .22 RFs and wanted something a bit unusual. So when I saw this 1915 Favorite in what appeared to be .32 CF, I snapped...

If it's of any interest, about four years ago I paid £695 (pounds sterling) for my Stevens Favorite chambered in the original .32 long. Great condition, all original blueing, no dings on the...

The trouble is, it’s such a great rifle to shoot I put a couple thousand rounds through it a year. The gunk builds up but doesn’t seem to affect it much. Anyway, since I once had to fettle a new...

Could be a take-down, but I guess you'd want your take-down screw to look different from your action retaining screw. Otherwise you might go to take it down and just have your action fall out. :)

Hi Eddie. Yes, you're right. In retrospect I should have had the blocks set almost twice as far apart. At the time though I had them mirror the block spacing on my Winchester 52. So, I've lost the...

I had both the P/H scope and the 12/15 for quite some time, but I only recently had scope blocks put on the rifle to use them as a combo.
