    Stevens 416 - info needed

    I have a Stevens 416 .22LR. This gun is near and dear to me as it was my first firearm, and also belonged to my Pop-Pop. He had bought it used and the previous owner thought he was a master gun stock guru but far from it. I had purchased a new stock from Numrich back in the day. When I was cleaning it yesterday I realized there was only 1 attachment point holding the barrelled action in the stock. That didn't seem right so I did some homework and sure enough I'm missing the front barrel band. I was able to order the barrel band and screw from Numrich, but the barrel band nut is out of stock and I can't source it.

    Luckily my buddy has a mill and a lathe and we can make this part, While we can reverse engineer it, if anybody out there has one of these rifles in their safe, and a set of dial calipers, and can take some measurements for me, that would be fantastic.

    I'll post some pics of the rifle at a later date if anybody is interested. I understand these were used as Military training rifles. They are very heavy and big, very similar in weight and feel with respect to mounting and carrying to an M1 Garand.

    I have two 416 rifles, one has a barrel band and the other does not. The one without may have had the stock chopped before I got it.

    The square part of the nut in your photo is 1/2" square by 1/4" thick. The hole in the center is 1/4-32 threaded. The large diameter of the post on each side is 1/4" and protrudes .065" on either side of the nut for a .630" total spread. I did not measure the groove diameter, it only needs to be wide enough to catch the thickness of the barrel band on each side.

    The 416 with the chopped stock has it's original set of Lyman sights in place and my newer 416 was missing it's rear sight when I got it so I made a scope mount adapter that slid onto the existing dovetails that accepted standard .22 rings. This was back in the 80's.

    The 416 rifles actually used for military training are stamped "U.S. Property". The 416 was Stevens entry into competition shooting when people needed something cheaper than the Winchester model 52. Mossberg had the Model 46M available too. Back in the 60's a military supply depot in my town had a junior shooting league for children of their employees and my buddy shot there with a shortened Mossberg 46.
