    Hello,
    First time here.
    I have a Stevens model 44 drop block .22 ...serial # Q 491... it is my understanding that it is almost possible to date a Stevens from the serial #'s. do to poor or non existant records kept by Stevens.
    If this is true, is there any other way to date the rifle?

    You might do some research and date it to a given decade but I doubt you'd get much closer. The engraving is not original to the gun and it had the manufactures info obliterated to give a clean area to engrave on.

    Put lipstick on the receiver and tell her you're taking her to dinner.

    Hey I had to do it, the question was so open it had to have this response.

    Welcome to the FTF, when you get a minute go over to the introduction section and tell us a bit about you. Seriously I hope you find an answer. it's a nice looking rifle.
