Hello.

As a newbie to the forum ( I have tried to introduce myself properly to c2shooter), please see attached some better images of the rifle, which MAY have been sold out of J Stevens showroom in Shaftsbury Ave., London. The bluing and CCH are original, but the scope sight blocks and blanking plate?? The serial number on the barrel beneath the forearm matches with the lower tang (468).
I hope you find them of interest.

Excellent specimen of the .25 Stevens! Very nice color case hardening on yours.

Can you still find .25 RF ammo there in the UK? Here is pretty much a collector's cartridge- shame because it was a pretty useful round.

BTW, where are you in the UK? My bride was a West Country lass from Devon.

I DO so wish the .25 Stevens was in vogue here. Id heart a Single Six/Marlin39 combo. Kills small game much deader than a .22 lr in my hazy memory.

Hello. I'm pleased you like the new images. The .25 Stevens RF is unobtainable here -maybe at a show, but try looking!

Devon - nice County, nice folk. Just south apiece from me (Gloucestershire). Grandfather, after Home Guard duty as armourer, moved to the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, where he ran his gunsmithing business, sometimes riding shotgun (literally) with the payroll wagon for Rank Xerox from Monmouth to Mitcheldean, and, I think, a revolver in his waistband. Happy days and many great stories on his knee as a "young shaver".

Please explain to the assembled audience that that lovely little rifle is a Section 58 [obsolete calibre] firearm. Welcome, BTW. I live in NW Cambridgeshire, not far from the hill. You can't miss it - it's the only one around for miles.
