I really like the Stevens Favorite pattern single-shot .22's, and IMO the Varner is at the top of the food chain.

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to obtain a NIB commemorative Stevens Model 71 Favorite for one of my younger Grandson's birthday.

Pete,

I have that same rifle. My dad bought it for me when I was five years old. It's had thousands of rounds through it and still as accurate as ever. I taught my step sons to shoot with it and someday maybe a grandchild.

Still have the box too!. :D

Color me green with envy, jb... ;)

While I may get to see my two youngest grandsons to shoot their .22 single shots, IDK if I'll be able to take them out on a hunt before I go for my Dirt Nap. :(

Very nice ! If I’m not mistaken they only made 22 rimfires correct ? I tried to get one a while back but didn’t have much luck :roll:
