For several years I saw pictures of, and read about, a reiteration of the Stevens Favorite single shot rifle. This rifle was made by a company, in Marietta, Georgia, named Varner Sporting Arms Inc. and the model is the Favorite. I finally found one on the rack in a local gunshop. It took me all of five seconds to buy it. The price I paid was $299.00. I would have paid twice that amount, for this rifle.
This little rifle exudes quality, every which way you look at it. It looks like this rifle is made better than the high grade original Stevens. If I get the time, and the discretionary dollars, I will have this rifle engraved and casehardened as the original high grade Stevens Favorites were.
The test target that came with the rifle, has five shots touching each other.
I would be interested in hearing from other Varner rifle owners, if someone out here owns one of these fine rifles.
