All firearms that are in caliber .22 Long Rifle (LR) or 22 Long or 22 Short are rimfires. If you look at the face of the bolt, you can see the firing pin. If it is in the very center of the bolt face, it is center fire. If at the edge of the face, it is rimfire.
THE GUN IS A .44 CALIBER SHOTGUN, NOT A .410 CALIBER. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IT MAY HANDLE VERY SHORT .410 CALIBER SHOT SHELLS OF LOW POWER BUT, IT COULD RISKY.
Certainly can't determine the caliber with out seeing the guns, unless it is marked on the barrel. Can't determine the value unless we know the models. I can tell you the one marked J. Stevens & Co was made between 1864 and 1886 and the J. Stevens A & T Co gun was made between 1886 and 1916. Stevens made several models of single shot pistols and "pocket rifles" in .22 short, .44 Russian, and almost every caliber between. You might check your library for a copy of Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms or The Standard Catalog of Firearms and see if you can identify your guns.

Yes. The A has a short A sound, as in crack and dab.
Yes. The A has a short A sound as in bat or crack.
No, 284 is larger than a short action can take.
The A has a short A vowel sound, as in craft and back.
I paid $25.00 for this rifle and I'm going to try to restore it. I need the year it was made before I start so I do not damage the value of it by doing so.
I'm going to say NO. The closest would be a .25 Stevens. Most were available in .22 and .30 or .32. The Hunter's Pet Pocket Rifle (really a long-barrelled pistol with a detachable shoulder stock) was chambered for almost everything from .22 short to 44-40 centerfire, but Cartridges of the World doesn't list any thing in 27 caliber that would have been appropriate or available at that time.
The Butler 22 caliber single shot pistol was made by Derringer. The Derringer company was founded by Henry Derringer. Derringer pistols are the smallest handguns available and were most commonly used by women.

The 223 is considered a Short Action rifle.
The Stevens 59A can shoot all size loads from #12 to slug. So in short, yes.
What caliber is it? The length of the rifle cartridge determines if it is a long or short action.
For a Smith and Wesson revolver in stainless steel that shoots short bullets, you might need a 380 caliber pistol or a S&W 32 caliber revolver.
One would think that .380 ACP and .38 Special would be the same size--namely 38-hundredths of an inch. But there can be some flexibility in stated caliber and actual caliber. Long story short, .380 ACP is the same diameter as a 9mm, roughly .355 caliber. .38 Special is basically .357 caliber.
Caliber refers to the diameter of the bullet and the diameter of a firearm's barrel. Even within a single caliber, there are several variations: .38 special is different ammunition than .380 ACP (9mm short) which is different than .38 Long Colt, which is different than .38 Short Colt which is different than .357 Magnum, which is different than 9mm parabellum. These differences have to do with the size & shape of the cartridge (brass) and how the firearm is designed to shoot it. All of those calibers mentioned above are roughly the same diameter though.
Any well stocked gun shop should have some. It is not a common caliber these days, so you may have to look around.
