Description:

The No. 47 was manufactured c. 1896 to 1916 in a variety of calibers and with special order options as seen on this rare example. The light no. 1 barrel has a globe front sight, the two-line Stevens A&T address and patent marking on top, "22. 7 1/2" on the upper left (identified by others as a designation for .22 WRF), and the matching serial number and barrel weight markings on the bottom. The front of the No. 44 type frame is marked "47 0." The frame has etched scroll and deer patterns and is fitted with adjustable double set triggers, a full loop lever, and a Vernier peep sight. The nicely figured pistol grip stock and forearm have multi-point checkering and a casehardened Swiss buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine with 60% plus of the original blue finish remaining on the barrel, strong original case colors in some of the protected areas, smooth gray and brown patina on the balance, mostly distinct etching, and general mild overall wear. The wood is also fine and has crisp checkering, some nice figure, minor chipping on the right edge of the forearm, and minor handling and storage wear overall. Mechanically excellent.
