What is a J Stevens Arms 32 R P Crackshot 26?
Your J stevens model 26 crackshot,is a boys type single shot rifle with a under lever opening,a 18in.round barrel,hardwood straight grip stock and forearm with open sights.these were made from 1913-1941.They were chambered in either .22cal rimfire,or .32cal rimfire caliber.
It is a Stevens Crackshot that was made for HSB&Co, a hardware distributer in Chicago. Evidently, Revonoc is Conover spelled backward. The HSB rifles usually had a better finish that the standard Stevens. I have seen both Crackshot, Marksman and Little Scout 22 &32 rifles with this name. Stevens also made rifles for Sears and Montgomery Wards and put their brand names on them.
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…
