Description

J. Stevens, Model 425 High Power, marked Cal. 35 REM, MFG. 1911-17, SN: 1013, Lever Action Rifle, 22'' Round barrel, 2/3 length mag., The 425 was designed by John Redfield & represented the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Companies entry into the centerfire arena. Although some sources erroneously claim there were 26,000 of these rifles produced, that is incorrect. More commonly accepted amongst knowledgeable collectors & factory historians is that less than 5,000 were produced & possible less than 1,000. The model was only produced or cataloged from 1911-17 & was serialized with at least one other Stevens model produced during this period, thus accounting for the confusion surrounding serialization. Peter Zobian, a prominent 425 collector has concluded from his research & exhaustive search, that Brophy's information in the Marlin book is most likely correct in that Steven (Savage) only made less than 1,000 of these rifles. As of 2010, his research had only turned up 117 examples, serialized between 1,021 & 5,594 in the four calibers, .25, .30, .32 & .35 REM. Remember other models also fall into that same serialization. Regardless of which production figure is actually correct, this model is one of the rarest of the lever models produced in the glory era of Winchester, Marlin & Savage lever rifles. The original walnut wood stocks are excellent, with thinned original finish & darkening from use. Stocks have few scuffs & minor contusions. The original metal blue finish on the barrel & mag has worn or cleaned to mostly a gray tone, retaining original blue in protected areas. The receiver & lever retain 25% of the original factory blue, the rest has worn gray. The top of receiver carries the two factory screw filled holes. Matching serial number is located on the inside of the original crescent metal buttplate & on the left side of the upper & lower tang under the wood stock. Bore is very good, shiny & with strong rifling. Barrel carries adjustable rear sight & a ivory bead front sight. A very good overall & original condition example of this rare & collectible rifle. FFL or C&R Req. - Value: 1200 to 2500
