    I recently purchased a J Stevens Model 1894 22 rimfire rifle. All the research I have done points to it being made in 1894. However I am growing a concern that it may be a replica. Did they make replicas and if so is there anyway I can tell if mine is a replica or the real deal. Thanks a lot for your help.

    Welcome to TFF purepain,

    The Stevens Favorite No. 30 is a modern reproduction of the Stevens Favorite series of rifles. I believe they are still in production and are being manufactured in 22LR, 17HMR and 22WMR. It is also available in a take-down version.

    It should be fairly easy to tell if you have a reproduction if you tell us EXACTLY how your gun is marked. Close-up photos ... all the better.

    If you purchased from a reputable dealer is is unlikely that you have a reproduction. The difference in value between an original and a reproduction isn't great enough to tempt anyone with average intelligence to misrepresent what he is selling. Of course, if the seller was a Democrat, all bets are off. Just don't tell me it came in a box along with a trigger lock.
