We are trying to find out just how many Stevens 425 High Power rifles were actually manufactured. We do not believe the 26,000 number quoted in the Blue Book and Flayderman's, nor do we believe the 10,000-11,000 figure quoted in Bill West's Savage & Stevens book. In the Marlin Firearms book by Brophy, he claims that only about 1,000 were manufactured between 1911-1917, and that might be a much more accurate figure.

If you have a Stevens 425 series High Power rifle, or know someone who has one, please post the gun's serial number on this forum. So far we have identified 18 guns, with the lowest number being #1050 and the highest #5302. The Stevens 425 serial numbers were lumped together in the Stevens' records with another Stevens rifle, possibly the Crack Shot No. 15, and the 425 numbers do not appear to be consectutive, so identifying individual rifles is important.

Please help.

Peter
Hello There, I've got number 4188 in 35 remington. Shot a 12 point buck with it in Eastern Ontario 2 years ago. Rifle still looks like it came from the factory.

Default Stevens 425 High Power

As of today, we have only 80 of these rare rifles on our list. Number 1050 is still the lowest serial number and 5594 is still the highest. I still believe that Brophy might be correct when he wrote in the Marlin book that only about 1,000 were manufactured.

We are still seeking more serial numbers with their calibers.

Thanks!

Peter Zobian

The serial number is stamped on the lower tang, under the lever. Please let me know what it is.

Hey I have a highpower 425 with what I think has a rear tang style sight.
But still has the other style sight on it. Just though you would maybe find this interesting.
