Home Made Stevens Favorite .22 Rifle

    Toms Techniques on YouTube rebuilt his Uncle’s Stevens Favorite rifle from scratch.

    When I’m not making instructional machining videos, I actually build stuff. Here’s a video montage on an ambitious project I started last year, the building of a Stevens Favorite .22 caliber rifle. Every part is, or will be hand made by me down to the last screw, even the rifled barrel. The original rifle belongs to my uncle and he asked if I could get it working again. I ended up making a new firing pin for it and fitting a new extractor. I liked the rifle so much that I disassembled it, measured and sketched up every part and made a CAD model, complete with detailed drawings. This first part is on the machining of the receiver, with much more to come. The entire build thread for the rifle can be found in the Gunsmithing section of metalworkingfun.com
