Actually, the Savage/Stevens Favorites have a swinging block action that only appear to be some other type to someone who's not totally disassembled one.

The breechblock has a lower/forward extension with it's pivot point forward of the rear of the barrel, and when lowered, the breechblock actually travels in a small arc.

AFAIK, the only true falling block Stevens was the Model 44-1/2.
