While preparing my father-in-laws estate we discovered a storage area with a number old and antique guns. This one makes us the most curious. The only numbers stamped on both the barrel and grip are 2766. The box it is contained in seems complete, including ammo. Any ideas?



Thanks

Hi Chris, welcome to TFF from Sitka, Alaska. I believe what you have there is an early Stevens "Pocket Rifle" - which I've also seen referred to as "Bicycle Rifles". What caliber are those cartridges?. I've seen Pocket Rifles listed in .22, .32 and .38 calibers, but there may be others. Hang on for a bit and I'm sure a member will be along who's more knowledgeable than I on the subject, and will be able to give you an idea of valuation. The example you've pictured seems to be in remarkable nice condition.

p.s. to previous. Stevens also manufactured a .410 Pocket Shotgun - same lines with detachable shoulder stock etc., but I think the shotguns had a trigger guard as opposed to the exposed spur trigger.
