Tried to post this on leverguns but just joined and have not been approved yet. Hope you get it.
I just bought a poor condition Stevens High Power at a show. It is in 30 Rem and marked 30-30 Rem. The serial number is 3996. These guns must have been hand fitted as this number is marked on the tang under the lever, on the side of the upper tang under the wood, on the lever, on the barrel under the forearm and on the bottom of the bolt. The action is complete and functioning. It came apart easily. The barrel is missing both front and rear sights but the plug screws on the top of the receiver and the upper tang, are in place and look original. I thought the barrel was cut off, but after looking at pics on the web, they all look uncrowned.
This rifle is missing the magazine cap, magazine spring and all the original wood. The buttstock on it is from another gun and does not fit at all and the forend is whittled from a piece of philipine mahogany.
