    Hi,
    My name is John and I'm new to this forum...

    I would like help identifying the year, exact model, and needed parts to restore this rifle.

    I have a j.stevens A & T Co. 22 Long Rifle and on the octagon part of the barrel it has stamped: J.STEVENS A & T CO CHICCPEE FALLS MASS USA PAT APR 1794
    (The barrel length is 22 inches long, the bore is still in fine condition and it fires .22 Long Rifle rim fire cartridges.

    The frame has the sn# stamped 1675 under the lever.

    The rifle is missing the Take-Down Screw (27B) Assy, the cartridge ejector, and the rear sight assy arm is missing (It looks like it was snapped off).

    Does anyone know where I can purchase some of these missing parts or do you know someone who could restore it for me?

    I can’t believe I just found this rifle in our attic! I thought It was long gone and would never see it again I used to shoot it with my dad when I was about five yrs old. My dad passed away over forty years ago and I now want to restore it and hang it on my wall. (This rifle is also the first weapon I ever fired).

    Your help would be much appreciated!

    Please e-mail me with any info,,, stasioc@comcast.net

    You have a very early Stevens "Favorite" based on the barrel patent date of April 17 1894 and the 22 inch octogon barrel. Made between 1894 and 1915.

    The source of information for the above is a book titled " Single Shot Rifles and Actions" by Frank de Haas. Probably still available somewhere. Parts breakdowns, schematics.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks much for the reply and info about the single shot rifles book...

    I will try to find a copy. I really need some help locating and replacing the missing and damaged parts. Any ideas?
    I think this won't be an easy task..

    John,

    Search for Wisners's, JackfirstGun and Bob's Gunshop in Ark. Bob's is your best bet. Your gun does look like a Favorite. Needs some TLC.
