I recently got a few firearms from my dad that have been in the family for quite awhile. One of them is a J. Stevens .22 rifle that I'm trying to find more information about. Below is a pic and an explanation of the markings on the rifle.
J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company Single Shot .22 Long Rifle: Based on some of my research, it's also known as the "Old Stevens Favorite". I did find out my grandfather traded a set of spurs for this when he was 12, in 1938. It does need a new extractor, every now and then my grandfather and dad had to use a pocket knife to pull the spent casing out. Best guess for manufacturing date, based on barrel markings is 1894-1920...but I could be wrong.
Top Right Barrel: J. Stevens A & T Co., Chicopee Falls Mass USA PAT. APR 17 94
Top Left Barrel: 22 Long Rifle
Bottom Stock Support: Serial Number
My primary goal isn't to sell it, but to keep it in the family, so I plan on restoring it. Besides Numrich, what is another good place to get gun parts?
