Default Stevens 425

Thanks. After looking it over it appears to be missing a few small parts so I think I will probably sell it "as is" on GB.

I currently hold in my hands #3807 which appears to be a model 425 in cal 30-30 REM. It's in pretty bad shape and we're doing a cleanup for a friend. The furniture appears to be in good order but the metals are fiercely pitted. She's getting a thorough cleaning and wipedown before she returns to her owner.

I haven't read this full thread yet... because I wanted to post the serial first. This rifle belonged to our friends father and I'm sure he'll want to know as much as he can about it when we return it to him.

Just purchased a Stevens 425 in 30 Remington, not the best condition,
serial number 3947. I enjoy the comments on this interesting rifle.

Default Stevens 425 High Power Lever in 30-30 Rem.

I just acquired a Stevens 425 in 30-30 Rem at auction a few weeks ago. It's been well used but also very well treated. It was probably someone's baby. Very tight and smooth action, has most of the bluing (probably 95%), excellent bore. Good stock too although it appears to have been strengthened. Very shootable. Aesthetically, it's a great looking vintage lever. I'm very surprised they weren't more popular. It's seems well designed and is extremely well balanced... much better than the 94's. This is the first one I've ever seen. I was fortunate to recognize it for what it was. The serial number on mine is 2262, in keeping with the indication that no one out there has one with a number less than 1000 or over 5025. It's missing one of the two small screws under the lever so if anyone knows of someone who has a parts gun, I'd be interested to know about about it.

Nice looking stock but it's been strengthened by what appears to be a professional gunsmith. Well balanced too. Serial number is 2262. I'm amazed this gun wasn't more popular. It's a great looking vintage lever!

Several people have recently purchased a Stevens 425 High Power rifle and have sent me the serial number and caliber. I thank you very much for the information, but may I suggest that you please use the forum for that information, and not a Personal Message to me. The Personal Message File is limited to 5 messages and I don't often check it.

I just recieved a Stevens High Power in 30-30 Remington it is serial number:
1350. This is my second 425 and I enjoy reading about them. Thanks to
Greg in Wyoming for giving us a heads up here that he was going to list
this gun. It's exactly as described and he is great to deal with.

I had already added 1350 in .30 Rem to my list, but thanks for your post. Stevens 425 High Power rifles are like potato chips, you can't just have one!
