Default Stevens Pocket Rifle

I have recently purchased one of these but unfortunately it does not have the wire stock with it. I have looked on Gun Broker and SEVERAL other websites and I can not seem to just find the stock. Can anyone suggest a place to purchase one of these? Thank you in advance!

Look up the word Rare in the dictionary and it will have a picture of one of those stocks

Have you thought about getting one manufactured for it? Won't be matching...and that stinks...but it's a great place holder!

Britches- welcome to the forum- when you get a minute, drop by the intro thread, say hello, and tell us a bit about yourself.

In the meantime, there may be a reason these are rare. While most are legally antiques (made before 1899) they have a barrel length under 16 inches. A shoulder stock on MOST handguns puts them in the category of a Short Barreled Rifle- which has to be registered as an NFA firearm with the BATFE. There ARE exceptions for some guns (Lugers, Browning Hi Powers, Broomhandle Mausers) but honestly have no idea if the Stevens are an exception.

Before making one, I would sure check with the BATFE Firearms Technical Branch, and get an answer IN WRITING.

I will do this! This is actually a shared account. My dad is the one with the gun collection but not very good with the computer. So he tells me what he wants/wants to know and I take care of it. I will get him to pull the gun back out and get some pictures!

Yes I would be willing to do that! In the perfect world I could find the missing stock but it would be easier to win the lottery! Any suggestions of a gun manufacturer, I have not been able to find someone who makes this as well.

I have done a little research and pretty sure that this one is before the "cut off" year so to speak. But thank you very much for the concern. No one wants to go to jail for a crazy gun collection obsession!
