Welcome to the forum.

Without pics it's really hard, especially since you don't have any marking to go off of. Post a pic or three and you'll get your answers pretty quick. There's a lot of expert on this forum and they know a lot more than they let on.

Hard to say without a picture. Stevens made many single shot tipping block rifles, notably the Favorite, Little Scout, Crackshot and Marksman, and the larger models 44 and 44 1/2. There are also other single-shot rifles made by other companies. If you have the entire action and not just the receiver, you can probably rebuild it.

That's actually what I have, just the working action.. but I have already acquired a .22 barrel off of what I'm not sure but it will be easy to retro fit it to work. The stock on the other hand is another, and harder story. Have started on it out of a chunk of white oak. I am mostly making it for my son, so it will be small.. he is only two. It will be a few years before he is able to shoot it but he is already obsessed with guns.. good boy
