Yep, your right, it is a 30-30 Rem. Just double checked the barrel on GB. I've got 2 other 425's here in 35 and my real nice one in 25 Rem.

It's the 30 Rem I've got the parts for.

Ya, I went back in this thread and saw a bunch of people needing parts. That guy that posted last December would have been in luck, I've got all three of the parts he needed to complete his.

We have been at this for 4 years, on every forum we could find, and we had letters to the Editors of Gun List The Magazine for people who did not have a computer. Plus we asked every person who had a 425 High Power, or went to a gun show, or even knew someone who went to a gun show to be on the outlook for 425 Stevens lever action rifles. So far we have only found 147 of these rifles. Acording to your reasoning, if thousands were made, with dozens sitting in closets somewhere (26,000 manufactured according to The Blue Book) then even 10% would mean 2,600 guns, not 147. In addition, ALL the serial numbers found are only 4-digit serial numbers -- with no letter prefix or suffix to indicate several series of serial numbers. Where are the higher serial numbers? Plus, as I said, the number of guns we have found in each serial number range has been almost exactly equal (except the 5000-5999 numbers). I think it would be an extremely odd coincidence (read impossible) that the 147 guns we have found are all guns from the first 1,000 manufactured!

I said there were thousands made, not tens of thousands. I suspect that you are overestimating the effectiveness of your survey. Many guys who have grandpa's old gun in their closet don't read online forums, nor Gun List magazine. My guess based on the serial number range would be that there were ~6,000 guns made, of which your survey has accounted for 147, or 2.5% - a more realistic response rate.

I applaud what you're doing, but trying to extrapolate the number of guns made based on a response percentage you've conjured out of thin air is a bit of a statistical stretch.
