The answer is probably stamped on the barrel. Does it say .22 Hornet? Most likely it says .22 LR or .22 Long Rifle.

Two other things:

The Hornet is a center-fire cartidge, "regular" .22's, be they shorts, longs or long rifle, are rimfire, having the priming mixture in the rim of the cartridge case. Look at the firing pin and see where it is located compared to the case head. On the edge?(rimfire) or centered?(Hornet) The chamber for the .22 Hornet is larger in diameter than the .22 rimfire, as the Hornet is a bottle-necked case. A .22 rimfire case will fall down inside the chamber of a Hornet and be loose. IF YOU PUT A RIMFIRE CARTRIDGE IN AND IT FALLS DOWN IN THE CHAMBER BE SURE IT IS OUT BEFORE YOU PUT ANOTHER CARTRIDGE IN OR YOU WILL HAVE AN EXPLOSION AND PERSONAL INJURY!!!

My apologies. I believe the 22 Hornet is a straight or tapered case. I was confusing it with the 25:20, which is bottle-necked.

The 22 Hornet is a "bottle neck" case, the rimfire has a straight case and will fill the chamber of the Hornet.

Depending on the model number and which part (you will need to know that) try gunpartscorp.com. Otherwise, visit a gunsmith.

I know of 2 : the white-faced hornet and the yellow hornet. I know this because I'm allergic to both of them.

1938-45. If you really need an exact year, you might contact the Stevens historian, Mr John Callahan, 53 Old Quarry Road, Westfield, MA 01085. Send him all the markings and your daytime phone number. His charge is $15 to research a gun.

I want to know the age of this rifle, when it was made? from what year to what year ? or do you know? Is stevans stil in busines?

I am told by my local gunsmith, they were made from 1930-33. His guess on the value is apx. 270-285 depending on condition. i don't know the exact age of my Stevens model 75, but i do kno te my grandfather who is 83 was given the rifle when he was 8 years old by his granfather and was well used when my grandfather received the rifle. if that helps. they also made a model 75a.

The Stevens 325 sxs shotgun was made from 1904 to 1908. Not many people know about this shotgun and it is often confused with the later made model 325 bolt action rifle.
