This is one of several Stevens' boy's rifles dating from the late 19th and early 20th century, made in Chicopee Falls, Mass. They sold for less than ten dollars each, some for less than five. Remember, that was a week's wages for many! This model has an external hammer and an under lever/trigger guard, which when pulled down, allows the rifle to hinge in the middle, similar to a double barrelled shotgun. Upon opening, the extractor catches the rim of the case and frees it from the chamber so that it can be removed. The open chamber is now ready to reload. Closing the action brings the hammmer to half-cock. The hammer must be manually cocked to fire. These little rifles were made in .22, .25, and .32 rimfire. There were also .410 and .44 shot models on the same type action, though they were called by another name. Dating can be done somewhat by the exact use of the name. If I remember, I think "J. Stevens A & T" was used before and almost up to 1900. "J. Stevens Arms and Tool" was used after the turn of the century. "Stevens Arms" was used after about 1910 until Savage bought them out in 1920. After that Stevens was still used as a brand, but there was also a Savage logo nearby.

What is the approx worth of your Stevens marksman model 236 22 long rifle marked j Stevens arms company chicopee falls mass?

AnswerTHE MODEL NUMBER DOES NOT MATCH ANY MARKSMAN I HAVE EVER SEEN. IF THAT NUMBER IS ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE LOWER TANG NEAR THE STOCK MOUNTING SCREW IT IS A SERIAL NUMBER NOT A MODEL NUMBER.The "236" has to do with a parts number or production date. It is not a serial number in the usual sense. I own more than 100 of the Stevens "boys rifles," and every one of them bears a three-digit number -- not likely I would have that many low-serial-number rifles. (Wish I did!)
