scopeboy66: Looks like your dad is a master wood smith. His gunsmith probably farmed
out the other work. The extractor on your gun is a 100 year old design any
gunsmith worth a damn can fix that. Pay the cash and have it fixed. Your
dad made you that gun for a reason..... To shoot
lambadafan: Ammo for the .25 rimfire can be fabricated using the Winchester.17 Super
Magnum rimfire cartridge cases. Very carefully!!!
Andre Gross: Old guns have a thing, thy work when you don't need them. When you need
them. They fail. Happens with my dads crosman 760. man that gun has
problems. You could call me a airgunsmith if you want, bringing old airguns
back to life. And this gin has me stumped...
zxsk8zx: i have one of these it is very accurate but they do have a lot of problems.
crf150f15: i got one camberd in 25 stevens and i want to know if i get a 22 barrel for
it will it still go in the reciever
GardandGuns: @Jrhoney It has a problem with the extractor.
randomvideoaccount4: I have a cheap one that i took apart to clean and now I can't reassemble
it! Got any tips?
Ed Schmit: You have a head space problem, common and an easy fix on a metal lathe for
Stevens Favorites. (Could be why your cartridge is stuck) You will need to
set back the barrel trim a bit of wood from the forearm and maybe re-cut
the extractor groove. Often when building a custom rifle from a Stevens
Favorite frame, the frame and barrel were threaded to eliminate the set
screw and end the problem you have. Beautiful custom gun but I'm a
collector of original Stevens Arms. Cheers and enjoy.
Eagleguts: A good solution for those with a 25 rimfire would be to reline it to 22
which is easy and you can get the liner from Brownell's I am sure. I have a
stevens favorite and a crackshot, both of them put together wouldn't be
worth 10 percent of the value of this rifle WOW!
JRhoney: Great looking rifle! Too bad about the issues its having. Is the breech
face dented which is causing the cases to stick or is it just a busted
chapiit08: Go to your local bookstore (Barns & Noble, etc) or to your Public Library
and look for the Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly. There
are several volumes, each covering different types of firearms.
GardandGuns: I am sorry, I have not taken apart the internal of this rifle yet.
Tinstar2: Wow...that is absolutely beautiful! Good luck with your repairs. I have
just ordered one of these, but it isn't the take down model as I can't find
one in stock anywhere. Do they still make the take down model? Anyway, I
love this kind of rifle, kind of like a small Sharps. I wasn't aware of the
problems this model has so I'm glad that I ordered through Davidsons Gun
Gallery as they have a great warranty on the firearms that they sell. The
dealership that it ships to is great also.
GardandGuns: @eldudeny Thanks for the information, I hope to get it looked at soon.
acykat2069: I inherited one of these from my dad. It's a .25 Stevens rimfire, so I'll
never get to shoot it!
