    Stevens 325a

    So I finally got my stevens 325a in 30-30 out to the range.
    The thing is neat as hell, but given it's light weight... I hate to say it, but it did have a good kick to it. I stopped shooting it prone it kicked so hard in that position. I have no problem with my .308 prone. Tamed the stevens down with a borrowed recoil pad.
    100yrds, with poor iron sights, and sketchy ammo, although hitting off to the right - once centered, I'd be capable of taking deer with it.

    I think the front sight needs replacing with something better.
    I have it up for sale locally, not so sure now. It's kind of fun. I could even fit a proper recoil pad to her.
    I could see big appeal of one in .222/223 or .22hornet
    Bonus: People even seemed to like the green stock!

    Anyone still make a peep for these guys? That might be the ticket. Always had a bit of a soft spot for these. Couple guys I grew up with had them. At the time I considered them way better than the sporterized No.4 Enfield I'd been loaned from Dad. Also, I could barely lift that gun when I was twelve, lol. Thank goodness I grew into it.

    Unfortunately this early model isn't D&T, for anything. The front bead, which I would rather be square, is also gold-ish or bare metal, which doesn't help acquiring it.
    I could get it d&t, but too much work for this plinker/novelty at the moment.

    The stevens would be perfect weight for a 12yo! Until they felt the kick from them, the 303brit through a enfield doesn't feel as bad

    That reminds me of a 10/22 stock a guy I know had done for his daughter.
    Yes, you can fix stupid, but the stupid folks have passed laws against it. - FallisCowboy

    I borrowed the idea from a green stock on cgn. I think it was on a 10/22 too.

    I plan on reloading for the 30carbine, and I think I'll going to load some 110gr fmj 30-30 rounds for plinking through this.
    I also plan on trying to properly fit a recoil pad.
    Then I will likely be bored and sell it.
