Stevens 44 1/2 From Friend's Estate

A little while back I posted about the loss of my good friend Mark Mueller. Last week his estate was "settled". His single shot rifles were entrusted to me to sell for the family. 2 of the rifles went to current Arizona Schuetzenverein members and 2 went to brand new members. Mark would have liked knowing 2 of his rifles brought new people to the group.
The family then awarded me the rifles that Mark would have taught my daughter to shoot with. This Stevens 44 1/2 chambered in .22 LR with a Lyman Jr. Target Sport 6x will be a fine start for Madeline.
Happy Easter,
Scott

Lovely rifle.  Does the "hump" just in front of the receiver indicate that it's been rebarreled?

Ballards may be weaker,

Very nice Scott. It's always tough to have to deal with selling a friend's estate guns, but it's nice that you were able to direct his guns to good homes.
Glad his family thought enough of your help to pass the 44 1/2 on to you also!

Thanks Val  Smiley I plan on introducing a junior that has expressed interest in shooting with us with this rifle. I think this is a great way to honor Mark’s memory.
Take Care,
Scott

Great looking Stevens rifle!   Your plan to get the junior involved sounds like a wonderful way to honor that gentleman.
