    You don't want to just reline the barrel to it's original 22?
    I did that to my Grandfathers Winchester after his passing and she shoots like a new gun.

    Where in the world would you get .25 Stevens RF ammo?
    It hasn't been made for over 60 years or more that I know of.

    Redman's can reline it to .22 LR.
    I doubt he would do it in .25 Stevens though.
    In fact, I doubt he even has a .25 Stevens chamber reamer.
