I am looking for a clip for a Stevens Buckhorn Model 56 22cal SL or LR. I previously ordered one from Numerich but it didn't fit. When I sent it back they said they didn't have another one that will fit. This gun was passed on to me by my grandfather before he passed and I really want to get it in shape so I can teach my son to shoot. If anyone has any info on where to call, I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Thanks
Shane

The Stevens Models 56 and 056 were first produced in 1935, not to be confused with the Ladies Model 56, which is a completely different firearm. The "nest" of info on this model is contained within Philip B. Sharpe's The Rifle in America, which was published (first) in 1938 and has as detailed info as any publication you will find on these firearms.My 1938 first edition lists the rifle as still being in production. However I do have a production ceased date of 1948 As a guide as to how hwavily to pursue the magazine..a Model 56/056 in excellent shape and complete with a factory original magazine is a $100 value. Even if you find a magazine, be advised that the .22 rimfire ammo used in that rifles prime life was(for the most part) corrosively primed...meaning..that there is cause to believe that the barrel is damaged beyond the point where it can be safely fired.(there is a barrel lining procedure to restore the barrel..costing + what the rifle is worth, but it can be done on your kitchen table. It is possible that SWavage/Stevens/Springfield used the same MAG on several .22 rimfires. Consult www.savagearms.com for a list and to access other dealers in obsolete Stevens parts...
