Stevens 180 Hammerless
« on: June 27, 2020, 03:58:10 PM »
There's one for sale on Gunbroker. This would make a interesting addition to a collection. Has some pitting but looks to be a quailty gun from its era.Is it the basis for the Savage 220?

Mike, thanks for posting.  It is a beautiful early gun.  A gunsmith friend here in Selma has one for sale in his shop.  I had never seen that model before and neither had he when he purchased at a gun show.  I did some research and identified it for him.  I agree that Savage may have gotten the idea from this gun.  While I believe the actions are totally different, the concept is the same and the general overall lines are very similar.  I hope it finds a good home.
