I have had a number of these Stevens tip-up rifles through the years.Mostly very heavy barrels,which makes these Stevens noted for their accuracy.This one is a fairly light action and barrel ( 3/4 '' at muzzle ). I believe it was made on the Ladies Model action, but since it was near the end the tip-up Model;the factory made as a normal model.It has a very high serial number, 26 inch barrel,and right calibers.It started out in .22 short or long rifle,and rebore by Stevens in 17 rifling twist to .25 rimfire.No tang sight remains,simple rear sight ,and becon front fixed permanently. The action works fine,though barrel is a bit loose on action,as is found on many of these. Bore is rough and a reline is in order, as it originally was a .22 rimfire.Wood is not bad for age,and photos should show metal finish.I sell this antique rifle for display ,or,collecting purposes. If intending to shoot, one must have a gunsmith check for safety to use.
