The Silhouette or Black Powder Cartridge Rifle
(BPCR) has been approved for Black Powder Silhouette competition by the NRA. This model
has either a sporting style stock with small cheekpiece (shown above) or Model 52 style (below) with more drop, and is
available in either right or left hand style. Wood used for the stock is lightly figured
Eastern American walnut finished with a closed pore finish, or unfinished but fitted. The
buttplate is shotgun style to minimize recoil, and has the Stevens logo. The bottom of the
pistol grip has the classic "S" shape on the bottom of the pistol grip. The
action has either a loop or ball and spur (without wood insert) lever and double set
Sights are not included, but we can install them for you. A globe front sight can be fitted into the 3/8" slot provided on this model. This sight should be typical of the period as specified in NRA rule 3.4. Likewise, the rear sight must meet this rule, which does not permit the use of click adjustable windage or elevation. The rear (tang) sight is attached to the top tang with 5-40 screws which are factory standard, and the hole spacing is also factory standard. We stock sights from MVA, Mechanical Accuracy (Steve Baldwin) and a few others.
