Hi,

We are trying to find out just how many Stevens 425 High Power rifles were actually manufactured. We do not believe the 26,000 number quoted in the Blue Book and Flayderman's, nor do we believe the 10,000-11,000 figure quoted in Bill West's Savage & Stevens book. In the Marlin Firearms book by Brophy, he claims that only about 1,000 were manufactured between 1911-1917, and that might be a much more accurate figure.

If you have a Stevens 425 series High Power rifle, or know someone who has one, please post the gun's serial number on this forum. So far we have identified 18 guns, with the lowest number being #1050 and the highest #5302. The Stevens 425 serial numbers were lumped together in the Stevens' records with another Stevens rifle, possibly the Crack Shot No. 15, and the 425 numbers do not appear to be consectutive, so identifying individual rifles is important.

Please help.

Rear sight

Hey I have a highpower 425 with what I think has a rear tang style sight.
But still has the other style sight on it. Just though you would maybe find this interesting.

In response to your request, I purchased a Stevens 425 high power 30-30 Remington years ago from a cousin in Oregon. The rifle is in very good condition with over 90% of the bluing in tact, no checks in the stock, and a shiny bore with no sign of pitting. The serial number, which is located under the lever, is # 4268.
