..well the stevens vavorite is before my time,,but could it be a 25-20
cal???i have never seen one other than a 22cal,and as far as the winchester
it could very well not have a serial no. and the reason you were offered
$10.00 bucks because both guns are very valuble,the winchester could very
well be a U.S. training rifle,by what you have said and it having a peep
sight,that would realy put kindle in the fire,,any-hoot they are two sought
after little rifles,but dig some info on that caliber of the VAVORITE...
