Yes, #1021 is still the lowest serial number on our list.

UPDATE: We have now found just 158 Stevens High Power rifles. The lowest serial number remains #1021 and the highest remains at #5594. So far I have seen nothing to change my mind that only about 1,000 of these rare rifles were manufactured.

Is the so called newer ammo that is available from Remington,Bufffalo Arms etc have the same specs as what was originally manufactured for these rifles (.25,.30,.32.,.35) I have noticed that Hornady makes some of these with a plastic tip but do cause any jamming of rifle when feeding from magazine?

Peter,
I just bought another 425 at auction through GunBroker. It was located in New Hampshire. Many of these guns seem to be in New England which somewhat makes sense. They were manufactured in Massachusetts. I own two now. This one is in 35 Rem, serial #4309. My other one is in 30 Rem, serial #2262 which I provided to you last year. That rifle is in 95% original condition. 4309 probably sat in someone's attic for 50 years and had a coating of rust and some pitting, the trigger touches the lever, and someone had done a poor job of trying to refinish the stock. However, the action is still very strong, still has a good bore and in god mechanical condition overall. We're fortunate to have a premier gunsmith and firearms restorer in St. Petersburg, FL where I live. His work is on a par with Turnbull. It's going to be costly but I've turned him loose to restore the 425. I also beat out some folks at another auction awhile back to acquire the Marbles tang sight (V7) that specifically goes with the 425. The end result should be a very cool gun.
How many do you have documented now and what are the lowest and highest numbers?
Steve Christie

Hi Steve,
Thanks for your post and congratulations on your recent purchase! With this gun we now have 160 High Power rifles on our list. The low and high serial numbers remain the same.
Best regards,
