The R-P" probably is "RF" for rimfire ammo. Since .32 rimfire is hard to find, this can cut the guns value unless it is in good enough condition for a collector to grab it. The Model 26 came in .22, .32 (and maybe .25 -- can't recall for sure). It followed the Model 16 Crackshot, which used a thumb lever rather than an under-trigger lever to open the action. The Model 26 was made 1912 to 1939 as one of many Stevens boys' rifles. Less popular than the Favorite (with which it is often confused), in average condition it is worth about $130 to $160.
The No 26 was manufactured from 1912 - 1939.
They are going for 50-200 depending on condition.

Gun Trade shows, most likely. E-Bay may be considered, as well. I've got a Crackshot 26, but it was my Great-Grandmother's. Not for sale!
Blue Book of Gun Values, Standard Catalog of Firearms, etc. The Crackshot was one of the "boy's rifles" first manufactured by Stevens in the late 1800's, but the 1913 patent date means yours was made later. If you have written the entire company name as it appears on the gun, it was made sometime after 1920 when Stevens was bought by Savage Arms and before about 1948 when the Stevens line was discontinued.
The approximate dates are abt 1886-1916. In 1920 Stevens started using the "J. Stevens Arms Co." instead of the Stevens Tools and Arms of earlier versions - I think Crackshots were made thru 36 (?) - so I'm assuming yours is a later version - 1920-36. Hope that helps THe No 26 was manufactured from 1912 - 1939.

I thought I could refinish my Stevens Arms Company Crackshot 26 Long Rifle, but was advised to take it to a reputable gunsmith for professional refinishing. I've never regretted it. Gunsmiths know much more about the process, and money spent is more than worth it in the resale value of the gun. He also replaced a screw that wasn't stock, replacing it with one that matches the gun. Good luck! Bob J.
your model 26 crackshot is going for between 75-225 dollars depending on condition.
We just went up to clean my grandmothers house after she passed away and found about 50 years worth of stuff. We found this old rifle in a corner with no trigger and its the same gun. I have the very same question you have my friend. I can say that it was made before 1959. ;) I googled it and found a wiki about j Stevens arms company but ill continue the search.
We manufacture some parts for that model. Let us know what you need. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Crackshot in .32 is often worth less than the .22 because of unavailability of ammo. But some collectors want the bigger bore. The Model 26 Crackshot will bring from $75 to about $225, depending on condition. Usual on-line auction price is in the $140-$170 range.
Stevens made two model crack shots 26 an 16. The 26 model was made from 1912 to 1939. Each of the models had a smoothbore feature that could be ordered and designation would the be 26 1/2. These guns in very good condition bring decent money but if average to fair condition they are around 1 to 2 hundred dollars. I you I got this information from someone else. My boyfriends father has a 26 crackshot that was April 22 1913 the same as yours and this is what we found.
1900 - 1913 if side brake , model 16 1912 - 1939 if brake underneth , model 26 Just got one at sale , model 16 for $125 , I feel lucky alot depends on how much it is wanted and reason it is wanted
That's a patent date, not a manufacture date. The Standard Catalog gives a range of values from $125 in Poor condition to $275 in Excellent condition.
I have a Crack Shot 26 and found several places online with them for sale. The value seems to range from $125 - $225 for one in "good" condition. I have seen one posted for $350. Of course, that auction ended with no bids on the rifle. Other sites estimate the rifle to be worth between $225 and $350, again, depending on the condition. These rifles were manufactured from 1912 - 1939.
