Stevens made two model crack shots the 26 and the 16. The 26 was a lever operated gun and the 16 had a thumd piece on the right side of the receiver to open the breech. the 16 was made from1900 to 1913 and the 26 from 1912 to 1939.Each model had a smoothbore feature that could be ordered and the designation would then be 16 1/2 and 26 1/2. These guns in very good condition bring decent money but if average ho hum condition they are around 1 to 2 hundred dollars. . Pete
what are the dinstenctive markings on this rifle and where do you find them.
The first answer tells you the distinct features - Lever Action or Thumb piece to open the action (Rolling Block). And if you want to know if you have a smoothbore version, look down the barrel.
That is not a rolling block it is a falling block design.
