Sweet rifles Wanted to get one back a few years, but did not want to spend that much then-now- forget it.
The Russian Revolution probably killed it. The Czar had a contract with what was Stevens then for 1.8 Million Nagants. When the Czar was overthrown in 1917, Stevens went into default and produced limited products until they were bought by Savage Arms. Stevens ended production of 425's 1917.

You're maybe thinking of Hopkins & Allen defaulting on a contract with Belgium?
The old J Stevens Arms and Tool Co sold all of its tangible assets, as I understand it, to a group of investors in 1915, who then formed the J Stevens Arms Co( the old Arms and Tool Co having been dissolved). Possibly incorporated in a different state?
Anyway, it was the new J Stevens Arms Co which Savage Arms bought in 1919/20 after those investors made their pile during WWI. The whole story of the two Stevens companies is confusing since there are no surviving records, according to rumor.
