Thanks for the latest serial numbers and calibers. Two new ones just today! 4065 in .35 Rem and 5263 in .30 Rem. We now have 145 known Stevens 425 High Power rifles on our list. The lowest number is still 1021 (.35 Rem) and the highest is still 5594 (.32 Rem). I still believe Brophy was correct in his Marlin book when he stated that only about 1000 Stevens 425 High Power rifles were manufactured.

Has anybody been able to determine what other Stevens model these 425's were serialed with? it seems apparent that these rifles did not have their own serial number range.

No, not yet. Savage records say the Stevens 425 was built along with another gun, but that their records do not separate the two.

Hello vintageautomobilia,

Hit is my first post here and sorry for jumping into the middle of your thread, and you may have already answered this question.

I recently inherited a Stevens 425 high power 30-30 rem 1910 from my grandfathers estate, after inspecting the firearm we have been unable to locate the serial number.

Can you give me any tips as to where to look for the serial number? We have found to production date and all the other information except for serial number.

Thank you,
Robilard

I have re-examined the rifle and short of disassembling the trigger and feeder assemblies I have still not found the S/N.

Robilard:

On most Stevens 425 High Power rifles except very early ones, the serial number is on the lower tang under the lever. On at least one very early gun the serial number is on the lever itself. It might also occur on the inner mechanism of the lever. Out of curiosity, how did you determine the production date without the serial number? Very little is known about the actual production date for any specific 425 High Power.

We have looked over the entire surface of the rifle looking for the serial number and have not found it. Aside from the date, make, model, caliber, and production facility there are no other markings on the rifle. I have been assured that all of the parts for the rifle are original.

As for the production date we were under the impression that the date stamped next to the rear sites was the production date, as the date on my rifle is different then the one posted earlier by another member.

Regards,
Robilard

I'll have to check my two Stevens High Power rifles, but I don't think a date stamped next to the rear sight is a production date. I just looked through all the posts and I don't see any reference to such a date, and I've never read anywhere that the actual production date is stamped on the rifle. What are the numbers stamped near your rear sight?

I have a 425 in .30 Rem. but I can't get the serial # right now. I'll try to get it this weekend and repost.
