STEVENS High Power—What is the weight of the Stevens High Power Rifle? Which is the best caliber for big game, such as deer and bears? Can this rifle be fitted with a sling strap?
The rifle weighs about seven pounds. For deer and black bears either caliber of this rifle will be all right; the .30-30 is as good as any. For deer, bears, and larger game—general big game bunting—get the .35. Certainly a sling strap can be attached. The Stevens people do not furnish them with sling straps but such a strap may be bought separately and attached by anybody. A screw-eye turns into the stock behind the lever loop, and another one is riveted into the forend, and the strap hooks into these screw-eyes. You can get such a sling strap from either the Winchester, Marlin, or Remington companies for about $1.50.
