What is the value of a Stevens Crackshot 26 22 caliber long rifle made on April 22 1913?
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.
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.

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.

Where can you find information about a rifle marked J Stevens Arms Company 1913 on the barrel and 26 Crackshot and SVG on the sides?
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.
