Basically a Savage. Get a after market trigger for it and you have got a real shooter.
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

I have a Stevens in .223. Very accurate gun...I feel like it was the best $260 I've spent on a gun thus far. If you can find the Winchester White Box 45 gr JHPs, this gun will love 'em if it is anything like mine. If I had any complaints, they would be:

1) The flashing on the plastic stock is sharp and needs to be trimmed down.
2) It's somewhat picky about feeding...I'm still working this out.

As for reloading, I have found that mine likes:

- Winchester brass
- Hornady 55gr VMAX
- 26.4 gr Varget
- CCI 400

This load is chrono'ed right around 3067fps and will group around 3/4" @ 100 yds.

It is a Savage. It is made by Savage. It does not have an adjustable trigger. For the money, they are hard to beat.

The Old Stevens were around before Savage was ever dreamed up. I have a Stevens 44 1/2 in 222 cal ( rebored) , that is my alltime favorite gun. As far as value , I would say in the 1500 to 1800 range.

Savage bought the Stevens name many years ago. I don't remember the exact year.
