Operation of a Stevens Favorite is simplicity itself. To open that action, swing the under lever forward, which lowers the breech block. Load by manually inserting a cartridge into the chamber. Close the action by returning the under lever to its fully rearward position. To fire the rifle, first cock the external hammer. Then squeeze the trigger. BANG! Repeat sequence as desired. Opening the action extracts, but does not eject, the fired case.
The hammer has a half-cock position, which is intended to prevent inadvertent discharge should the hammer slip from under the thumb while it is being cocked. Otherwise the half cock notch is not used--it is not a "safety" position on the new Model 30. The rifle is completely safe with the hammer lowered on a loaded chamber and that is the proper way to carry the new Model 30 when loaded.
During its lifetime, the .32 rimfire was loaded with black powder followed by semi-smokeless and smokeless powder loadings. While it was popular as a very effective small game caliber, it was considered obsolete by the late 1930s, in part due to the introduction of high velocity versions of the .22 Long Rifle using smokeless powder.
