I have recently inherited a "Stevens" Model 325-C chambered in 30-30 caliber. Savage Arms has their name on the rifle as well. It's a cool little bolt action with a short clip. The gun has been well cared for and seems to be in excellent, but still slightly used condition. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

SAVAGE (STEVENS) MADE SEVERAL MODELS ON THIS BASIC ACTION (M-325,340, 840) IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT CALS. (.22 HORNET, .222, .225, .30/30). NOTHING FANCY, JUST A GOOD USABLE RIFLE.

Yours should have a spoon shaped bolt handle. These are nice little "truck" guns that will often surprise you with their accuracy. Before the Hornady LeverEvolution ammo, handloading spitzer bullets for these and a few other bolt actions was the only was to get much more than factory performance out of the 30-30. I have 7. 2, 225 Winchesters, a 342 in 22 Hornet, 2 30-30's, a 222 and a 223. Whole collection cost me around $1200. Not too many bolt actions you can collect the whole range of calibers for for that little money, and have that much fun shooting them! Not too much guilt playing with them...except for the 225's...they are a little scarce

I have a Savage 340 in 30/30. This is a clone of your Stevens. They a servicable and reliable rifles. I can get a 1 inch group at 100 yards and the new Hornaday 30/30 ammo extends the range on deer to 250 yards.
This is all you can ask of a truck gun. May never be a collector's item but is a good family heirloom. Enjoy it.
