It has the correct 20” round to octagonal barrel with a clean bore and crisp rifling. It measures 36 ½” overall.

STEVENS A. & T. CO. CHICOPEE FALLS MASS U.S.A. PAT APR.1794’ (illustrated, indicating manufacture between 1898 to 1903) and one of the barrel flats ’32 Long’ (calibre). The stock also has crisp Remington Arms Co manufacturer detail. The weapon is serial number '632' which is stamped on the underside of the action tang. The cocking, firing, take down and rolling block actions work perfectly. It has a ribbed wood butt plate, blade fore sight & adjustable rear sight.
