This Stevens manufactured early variation 20" long barrel in 22 LR caliber is for the Marksman-12 single shot lever action rimfire rifle and is in very good condition exhibiting a mostly grayish light brown patina with traces of original blue finish in protected areas and possibly some specks of older rust. The bore rates good with strong rifling but does have some specks of pitting present. (file photos)
Date of Manufacture: between 1912 and 1924.
Note: we have observed three rifles with early and intermediate variation receivers having this variation barrel in a length of 20" long.
