The frame, lower tang and lever are case colored in the original ripple style Stevens colors, though other finishes are available upon request. The action can be supplied with any of four levers: the Pope lever, loop lever, plain "S" lever, or ball and spur lever with or without wood inserts. It is available in pistol grip or straight grip, and comes with Schuetzen double set triggers. All actions have heat treated breechblocks with Mann-Niedner firing pins. The firing pins are made from high impact tool steel that is properly hardened; additionally, the firing pins are a snug fit in both the breechblock at the rear and in the retaining bushing. A standard feature is a special lightweight hammer with lower nose for cleaning rod and cartridge clearance. This hammer reduces lock time by about 40%. The top tang is tapped 5-40 for original or reproduction sights designed for Stevens rifles.
The frame is slightly thicker than the original, being about 1 1/4" thick rather than the Stevens 44 1/2 action's 1 1/8". This has allowed the use of somewhat larger barrel shank threads. These are 15/16-16, the same as the Winchester high wall, and larger cartridges can be used, up to the ability to load a case past the hammer. Some but not all parts are interchangeable with original Stevens Model 44 1/2 actions. Please contact us if you would like more specifics.
