This gun is up for auction as a parts gun only. We cannot guarantee that all the components of the gun are present. Parts may or may not be missing from this gun. If we know what is missing we will put it in the description. This gun should only be considered as a parts gun for repairing other guns or as a fixer-upper that may require parts. We purchased this gun to use as a parts gun for our gunsmith. On some guns he has removed parts, some he has not. We are accumulating too many, so we are listing them to reduce our inventory.
This is a J. Stevens Arms Company NO. 26 Crackshot .22 LR caliber lever action single-shot rifle. This single-shot will accept .22 S, L, and LR cartridges. These guns were manufactured between 1913-1941. The gun has an 18" barrel with both the front and rear sights still present on the barrel. The bore is shiny with decent rifling and in good condition.
The majority of blue is gone from the metal and after refinishing the stock and forend someone continued to the varnish all the metal. There is some rust pitting underneath the varnish, but from what we can see none of the pitting is too bad. The refinish job on the stock and forend is a bit rough, but there are no cracks in the forend and only one small chip in the heel of the stock at the top. The stock is a bit loose on the frame, but should be able to be tightened without too much trouble. The steel buttplate is also still present on the stock (see photos).
We attempted to test-fire the gun with a .22 LR cartridge and it did not fire, however when opening the gun it did extract the round from the chamber. It appears that all the components are present including the firing pin, extractor, hammer and trigger assembly, but as mentioned the gun will not fire. Serial #NONE. STK. #12736.
