Can you put a 17 caliber barrel in a 25 rf frame and make it work so you can have a shootable gun again?
With enough money, almost anything can be converted into almost anything else. I'm sure you won't find a "ready-made" .17 barrel, but a good full-service gunsmith could make one or modify one to fit your frame. There would probably be additional modifications required to the firing pin and extractor. It would be much cheaper to get another gun to use and hang your old Stevens over the fireplace. RELINING The barrel can probably be relined to one of the .17 rimfire cartridges. This process involves drilling out the entire bore, setting a liner in place, chambering and cutting the extractor relief. Would have to take measurements to see if the existing extractor and firing pin would work. www.countrygunsmith.net
Just exactly is it you want to know? Your description is vague at best and lacks detail such as caliber, all markings on frame/barrel, barrel length, finish, type of grips and material made of, etc..

The maker of your revolver was Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works.This 5 or 7 shot revolver was called the Birds Head grip model,and was made from 1873-1888.IT was chambered in .22cal(small frame)32cal(medium frame)and 38,or 41cal(large frame).Yours will have either a 2 1/2in barrel(small frame) or 2 7/16in barrel(large frame).I must include that barrel length,s of 10in.have been encountered with this model.
.38 caliber REVOLVERS can be several different lengths, depending on the frame and the barrel of the revolver. Typically one of the smallest is the S&W Chief's Special (Mdl 36) which is about 6.5 inches long (2 inch barrel). I have others over 12 inches long. .38 derringers are smaller still- about 4.5 inches.
Every firearms maker is required to stamp their name, model number and caliber on the firearm somewhere. For hand guns it is usually found on the frame. For long guns, the make and model is usually on the receiver and the caliber on the barrel. Old pistols and some rifles (usually made before 1900) might not have this stamped on it.
How would you find the correct caliber for a Marlin Model 1893 serial 203475 with an octagonal barrel if it does not have the caliber stamped on top of the barrel?
That is a bit problematic. This model was rollmarked with the caliber designation on the top of the barrel immediately forward of the receiver. The other barrel markings should be: MARLIN FIRE-ARMS CO. NEW-HAVEN, CT. U.S.A. PATENTED.OCT.11.1887.APRIL 2.1889.AUG.1.1893 It is possible that your original barrel has been replaced, or perhaps the gun has been heavily refinished with markings obliterated during polishing. Either way is bad news. If you do not find the caliber markings, the…
Please note there are at least 4 different models of this pistol. 2 of the early models used a barrel bushing, and takedown is a bit different. For the ones with no bushing- remove magazine, draw slide to rear, check chamber to insure is empty. On the RIGHT side of frame/slide towards the muzzle is a vertical line, and an arrow. Draw slide to rear until arrow lines up with the line. While holding them…
