Found a Stevens "Low Wall" (Favorite) at Turnbull.
I agree that, as a custom rechamber project -- if it's a Favorite action -- 45 LC seems iffy. Frank de Haas thought .22 Magnum was a bit much for the original action. It's not some flavor of the Stevens No.44 action?
Could you post a photo please? I'm intrigued.
Turnbull's ad looks like a Favorite which is no way suitable for .45 Colt.
The Stevens No 44 was made up to .44-40 and even .38-55 in the black powder era.
One with a .45 barrel should be strictly limited to low powered ammo.
Stevens had a lot of model numbers but a relatively few actions, I can't find which one the No 25 was built on. Searching finds a lot of .25 caliber rifles but not a No 25 Stevens.
We can hope it is a 44 1/2 which is entirely different from a 44 and much stronger.
