Casehardened Frame on Stevens Tip Up Rifle?

Post by slumlord44 » Mon Jul 14, 2008 10:09 pm

I am looking at a Stevens Tip Up on one of the auction sites. Gun looks too good. Frame is case hardened. Seller says it has not been refinished. I think it has been refinished. None of my references or catalog reprints show a casehardened frame as being available. They say nickel plated of browned possibly. Anybody out there ever heard of this frame finish?? I am interested in this gun even if it has been refinished, but am not willing to pay as much for a refinished gun.
