Hello,
This looks like a place someone can help me out. I don't really know all that much about guns. I've shot a couple of times, but that's really all. Yes, I'm a total newbie and my knowledge is limited to a few handguns.

Anyway, since my parents moved to the farm my father has been saying he wants a .22 rifle. I found one at the gun show. It's a Steven's Springfield Model 56 and have been having some trouble finding any information about it online with a google search. I've managed to find some extra clips and parts, but that's about it. I was looking for a little more than that though like History, Year made, and anything else that would be good. I wanted to put it in a package for him and give it to him on his birthday next weekend.

I don't think it's a real valuable or super special gun considering what I paid for it, but it's in real good condition (had a buddy check it out but he didn't know about the specific gun) with original 5 round mag. Came with a scope and everything. He hasn't shot in about 30 years and it's pretty much what he wanted so I think he'll like it.

If you can help it would greatly appreciated.
Thanks
JP

There was a Stevens model 65 made in the very late 60s.That would be a bolt action with a 5 shot clip.I find a stevens model 56 no description-made1933-45.I hope this helps some.Stevens and savage using the stevens name made literally millions of 22 r.f rifles in a bewildering array of model designations . :shock:
