Stevens Model 85 .22 Semiauto – In Kit Form To Be Assembled by You This rifle, along with a pellet gun that I sold on Auction Arms recently, was in my house when I bought it. I took it apart to clean it up. IFigured that, as a “gun guy” who has taken apart a lot of .22 blowback rifles, getting it back together would be easy. Wrong. That’s why I’m selling it “in kit form.” It has all of its parts. Please see the picture. I would estimate this rifle to be in 50-60% condition. Before shooting it, you should have it checked by a competent gunsmith. PLEASE NOTE; I am not a professional seller. Just a full time estate and trust lawyer and part time armadillo trying to clean out his “burrow”. I’m primarily a defense oriented shooter and have an excellent Bushmaster carbine and a .22 clone. Don’t need this rifle. Any ?s, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for looking. Gottfried. ****NOTE ON CONDITION: I ran a brash brush through the bore and shined my Surefire flashlight through it. Rifling appears to be sharp. There might be 3-4 VERY small pits. It was hard to see. No rust that I could see, although the finish is what I believe is called "plum." It's sort of uniformly dark brown, as it appears in the pictures. ******NOTE ON DATE OF MANUFACTURE****. I did some more checking after answering the question regarding date of manufacture. I based my answer partly on the absence of receiver grooves and mentioned my old Mossberg from the early 50s. Winchester discontinued the Model 63 in 1958 and had receiver grooves on only the last 10,000. Remington introduced the 572 in 1955, with receiver grooves. Based on this, and having grown up in those times, I'm almost certain that all .22 rifles without receiver grooves are more than 50 years old. Obviously, I can't be positive, but would think that a C&R would be OK.
