Quite a few Stevens rifles around, but very seldom do you see one with a removable sideplate. Only about a couple thousand were made. This Stevens is in the Ideal model configuration with a 24 inch part octagon part round bbl which is aged and very attractive grey-brown patina. Metal is nice and smooth, a few little dings on the bottom bbl. The serial number is 1040 which is marked on the bottom of the bbl and the bottom of the tang. Receiver about the same coloration as being an antique greyish. It has an original tang sight. Another very unique feature on this gun is the Swiss buttplate. Caliber is 22 short and long. Wood shows it's age but in very good overall condition. Scarce gun.
