Was a Stevens Favorite ever made as a full blown target rifle?

Not to my knowledge but there was  a delux version with a checkerd stock and delux wood. Also a Ladies Model. Seen a Ladies Model once and have one that could be a factory checkered stock but no way to prove it.

I once heard of a Favorite (1894 version) that was built for a child as a roughly 2/3-scale Model 54.  I never saw it.  But having seen a cased Crackshot with a Harry Pope barrel with documentation and being sold by the man whose Stevens-employed father gave it to him for Christmas when the seller was 5 years old. I certainly believe that the aforementioned Favorite could have been made.

Said I wasn't aware of one. Doesen't mean they didn't make at least one. Never cataloged as far as I can tell but they certainlyly would prety much build anything that a custiomer was willing to pay for.

There was a Ladies model that was a light target rifle.  Here is one I built on a 1894 favorite.
