.25 Rimfire


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Dad just bought a Stevens single shot in .25 rimfire without consulting me on it's use before the purchase. Of course, it's pretty much useless in it's current chambering. Is there any 25 round that it can be rechambered to?

I doubt if your Dad's Stevens in .25 Stevens Rimfire could be rechambered. However it is a collectable and shouldn't be altered in anyway. With very careful shopping, you "might" find some .25 ammo, but it will cost a fortune!!!!

I don't see any on their site today, but might give them a call and ask. Good luck.

I do not know if this thread is still active but her is some additional information:
"Widner's" has a listing of available parts and an article on identifing your rifle model.
"Jack First" (company) sells parts for many older firearms, including the Stevens line.
If your firearm is NOT of 'Collectable' condition, but instead is of 'safe to fire, usable' condition, then there would be the possibility of modifing it.
If you wish to keep the .25 Stevens bore, the 25ACP is the same bullet diameter and although it is a center fire caliber it would be suitable for your rifle in pressures.
one possibility is obtain a second Breech Block and extractor to match your rifle and have the replacements modified for center fire and to extract the 25ACP case. NOTE: the 25 ACP is a Semi-Rimmed design and will be possible to head space on the rim, similar to the original rimfire rounds, just a smaller diameter rim.
These are suggestions to be carefully considered with the aid of a Professional Gunsmith.
Alternativly you could have your rifle refitted with a breech Block, Extractor, and barrel chambered for the 22 Rimfires, which are similar in pressures and would be just as useful and possibly less work in converting.
Best Regards,
