Stevens Favorite
Falling Block Rifle
Model 1915
Calibre 0.22
Serial No: M699
Price: £250

Model 1915 Take - Down


This type of rifle action is known as a pivoting block type, or swinging block, since the breech block is pivoted on a pivot screw in the
mid-section of the receiver.
Upon activating the lever, the breech block pivots, or swings down to expose the chamber.

These firearms evolved basically with many internal running changes happening over the time span that the guns were in production.

There appear to be basically 4 main different versions of the Favorite, the 1889, 1894, 1915, & the 418 with other sub variations made along the way. Most guns were made in either 22RF, while 25RF or 32RF calibers were offered.

The 1915 version, introduced in that year, was made until 1935. No patent date has been observed on the 1915 barrels.
The receiver has 2 tang peep holes drilled & tapped on the upper tang, along with “model 1915? stamped on this top tang.

The top of the receiver had “TRADE MARK” on the top line, with “FAVORITE” on the center line, & “REG US PAT OFF & FRN” on the bottom line, all stamped on the top receiver flat.
