You should repost this under 'ID & Value' board...

Sounds like a Savage (Stevens) Model 24...Bout all I can tell you except there are still some parts available out there...

I have one of these, it was my first gun. Be careful with the rear sight, and keep it clean. Oil it OFTEN if the original finish is as thin as mine. Just oil and lightly wipe.

They're a good looking gun, and they shoot respectably well. Good learner. That little button on the right side is the barrel selector if you haven't figured it out. Up for up, down for down...

Yup, we had one many years ago too. Ours was a Savage, didn't say anything about Stevens on it. Savage put the Stevens name on some of most everything they built in those days. Ours was the older one, didn't have the button on the side, it selected barrels differently, but I don't remember exactly what it was though right now. The o/us like that are bringing a pretty penny right now. My son has been kind of keeping an eye open for one, and they are pretty proud of them everywhere I've seen them for sale! Nice little gun, I'd keep it if I were you. I ate many'a bunny, pheasant and quail compliments of the little two pipe Savage!

I looked in the Gun Traders Guide last night and it lists your gun as being the forerunner of the Savage Model 24. Savage bought Stevens many years ago and I suspect your specimine is an original Stevens manufactured gun where the later ones are all trademarked Savage. Seems like the book suggests something in the $150 range as appropriate. But as always, supply and demand rule!

Savage bought Stevens in 1920. The 22-410 was manufactured in the Stevens plant starting 1939, in 1950 or so the Stevens 22-410 became the Savage model 24.

I'm guessing yours is stamped "J. Stevens Arms Co" ?

I have the same Stevens gun. Mine has no numbers on it at all made before serial numbers probably. The rear sight is of the ramp-v type popular back in the 1930's. I love this little gun as it's light to carry, great on rabbits and I even get a grouse now and again.

Good luck with yours.

My first gun was the same model Stevens, .22/.410. My brother had a Savage .22WMR/.410. We took a lot of squirrels and rabbits with those guns over the years.

One one small word of caution, be careful if you decide to change the barrel selector with the hammer cocked. Seriously, my dad shot himself through the foot with the .22 doing exactly that. Can't say if it was a fault of the mechanism or something else he may have done. That was well before my time, but believe me he drilled that into both my brother and me.

Great little guns.

I have a Stevens .22/.410 and have had it for 16 years. I take it you know the basics of the rifle, so I'll just give you a little info on it, as I have done some research on it. They were made, with the J. Stevens name, from about 1938 to 1950 as .22/.410, then they changed to Savage model 24. As to what they are worth, from poor ($125) to excellent ($450-$500) condition. They are a great rifle. I find it very accurate and a great rabbit gun. The .410 barrel gives quite a kick if you use slugs, but other than that, it is a smooth firing rifle. Just keep it cleaned and oiled and you should have no problems with it. I still use it today, and my son will be inheriting it, as it was passed down to me from my father-in-law, and from his father to him. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine. 8) ^77

You can get a receiver sight that is made for the gun from Williams, I like it a lot better than the one on the barrel. I made a dovetail blank out of a peice of a steel washer.

Put some small screw locktight on the side selector screw or it will disappear some day.

A good one sells for about $350 around here.

Hi folks....new to the Forum
I've had a Stevens 22-410 since about 1964. My Dad bought it for me.
Over the years it's been used and abused. I'd like to get it back into good shape...not for sale but to hand down. Mechanically it's fine, and except for the butt plate, all the parts are there.
I had a guy "re-finish" the steel parts but he didn't do a very good job at all and it needs to be redone and re-blued. Can anyone suggest a good place to have this done in the Midwest; Omaha maybe?

As mentioned above, I'm in need of a butt plate. (This has a nylon stock and forearm)
Evidently this is glued in place (?) as I don't see any other means to secure it.

If there's a serial number on it, where would it be?

thanks...and, a great site

willie

The Stevens 22-410 and pre-1968 Savage 24's didn't have serial numbers, since they weren't a legal requirement until the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Your gun doesn't have a nylon stock, it's has an early proprietary plastic stock set Savage named "Tenite".

While you can glue another plastic/bakelite BP in place, it better have the access hole, for the through-bolt that holds the buttstock on.

Most owners with sour stocks replace the Tenite set with wood - readily available from several sources online, one of which is Macon IIRC.

Below is a ca.1939 Stevens 22-410 Tenite above a 1951 Savage 24B 22/410:

Good post criscokid as the tennite held up like our double barreled dasiy plastic stocks BB gun did

in full sun in a turtle back rear seat window! I have a Mod 24 side button selector very heavy for

a 22 rifle or 410 ,but not as heavy as carring two rifles. Bob

Another thing,,,,as a general rule,,,,,the older a Savage/Stevens gun the higher the quality (except for those Tenite stocks). The late thirties guns are better than the late forties guns which are better than the fifties guns,,,etc.,,,,,but even the last ones they made are still good, safe, reliable guns. :wink:
