Florida Gunshow find: my 1st Stevens



Log in to see fewer ads
couple weeks ago, I drove down the coast from Savannah to the Jacksonville, Fl gunshow and found this rifle: Stevens Marksman 22lr in what looks to be in pretty decent shape. Only defects I found are in the forestock where it meets up near the underside of the receiver and the missing piece off the corner of the plastic buttplate but I can live with that. I functions when I fired off a SuperColibri in the backyard.
I can't hardly stop holding and handling it.
I have grown to love old 22 guns

Would be good with CBs, quite good fun too.
There is a company that makes repro buttplates, they take some fitting though. Even if you found an original it would have been fit to a different stock, not a straight screw-on to yours.
Thats quite the screw hanging behind the trigger. Whats that for? Cant be original.

No, that screw...

No that screw behind the trigger is most definitely NOT original. be interested in finding out why it was put there.
God Bless, Frank.

I'm going to have to try to find illustrations of the original screw for comparison.
I'm new to these so have no idea about them.
Thanks for pointing it out.
