What is the age and value of a 12 gauge Stevens Savage Arms double barrel shotgun made in Chicopee Falls?
Answer . Stevens made firearms in Chicopee Falls from 1864 to 1990 but the association with Savage did not begin until 1920 and if the gun is marked with both names, it was probably not made until after WWII. If it was manufactured after 1968 it WILL have a serial number, but if made earlier it …MAY have one. A utility double barrel that shows some wear but is still functional is worth about $200-250.

What is the age of Springfield double barrel 12 gauge shotgun made by J Stevens Arms Co X80091 with a 22 in a circle in front on the trigger guard?
%DETAILS%. Answer . Are you sure there isn't a model number on the right side of the receiver, 5000, 311, 215? There are no serialation lists for Stevens Arms, but with a model number it can usually be narrowed down to a couple of decades. Without one, I can only say it was between 1920 and 19…48.. (MORE)

Is it safe to shoot a 12 gauge double barrel shotgun built by Baldwin Arms Co at New Orleans if it has Damascus barrels and if not can you get seamless steel barrels to fit it?
Your shotgun would have been manufactured in Liege, Belgium, by Anciens Etablissment Pieper and sold by A. Baldwin & Co, New Orleans, about 1893-1914. I would not fire a damascus-barreled gun without having it checked and approved by a competent gunsmith (NOT the guy with a key to the gun case at Wa…lMart!). It is possible that a gun of this age would have been proofed for smokeless powder and have 2 3/4" chambers, but it is more likely to be made for 2 1/2" black powder shells. Of course, you can have barrels custom-made, but why would you want to spend a couple thousand dollars on a gun worth $200 or less? Answer Just about every state requires perspective hunters to attend firearm safety training of some sort before a hunting permit is to be issued. In these courses the safety of firing damascus barreled shotguns is often a part of the presentation by the course instructor complete with examples of delaminated barrels. Having seen such things I can only tell you that if you really feel a need to fire one of these old timers your best bet will be to wire it to a tree, tie a string to the trigger, and pay that string out as far as you can befire pulling it. DO NOT, take any chance whatsoever or you just may end up blind! I DO NOT recommend that you fire this weapon.Your Baldwin & Co 12ga shotgun is not designed to use the moder powder types/charges used in 12GA rounds,modern shells will cause the barrel to expand,this weapon would be more valuable as a collectors item because of its age,,I have a Mears Arms Co. 12ga double barrel with belgium Damascus/Laminated barrels made in 1938.I reload my own shells so I am able to change the powder type from Pyrodex to black powder and change the charge so as to not stress the barrels...you can do this as well,but i would not recomend it for your model unless you speak with a licensed gun smith..

What is the age and value of a 12 gauge Stevens Arms and Tool Co Model 335 double barrel shotgun with a 1907 patent date?
If it is marked "J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co" it was made before 1920 and, of course, after the 1907 patent date. If it has exposed hammers and twist or damascus barrels, it's primary value is as a mantle decoration (probably $125-$150), but if it is hammerless with fluid steel barrels and 2 3/4" cham…bers, it could still be a shooter ($250+/-) if checked and approved by a competent gunsmith.. Why are you so quick to condemm anything that has Hammers , twist or Damascus Barrels. Enlighten yourself and start reading the Double Gun and Single Shot Journal. Competent people there have tested these old guns with proof loads and found none to be lacking in strength . What you are saying has all been debunked. I will take a Double or single Damascus barreled gun to the field any day, sure i will measure the chambers and fit my ammunition to the gun and not fire proof loads in it everytime. Clue yourself in and take some advice from someone who has shot for a long time, your maximum loads and 3 inch shells wont fill your bag if you cant put them in the right place . (MORE)
%DETAILS%. Answer . Built c. 1930-1948 by Stevens division of Savage Arms. If in useable condition, possibly worth $200+..
\n Answer \n. \nWith that version of the Stevens name, it would have been made after 1920 when the company became a division of Savage Arms and 1948 when the name was changed to simply "Stevens". As you said, it is a good, dependable gun, but it is not a collectable, so the value lies in it's …utility. In most parts of the country it would retail for about $250 in NRA Good to Very Good condition. (MORE)

What is the history of a J Stevens Arms 12 gauge double barrel shotgun with a nylon stock that loads by breaking the barrel open?

Where can you find information to help restore your great grandfather's double barrel shotgun marked only Springfield Arms Company with no serial number?

What is the value of a 16 gauge Springfield J Stevens Arms Co hammerless double barrel shotgun Model 5100 made in Chicopee Falls Massachusetts?
Answer . Is that the serial # or model #? I have one marker 19HF on all separate parts. My thought was that is the model. But my other id # is 5000, so what are the odds we have the sane gun model 1oo units apart?.... Answer . Value is $150-$250 depending on condition. Less if it is broke…n or rusted and a little more if like-new. The 5000 and 5100 are not serial numbers. I'll bet my JC Higgins 16 gauge looks just like your guns and it is also numbered 5100. Stevens introduced the Model 5000 (in 1923 or 26, depending on which reference you believe), changed the model number to 5100 in 1931, and then to 311 in 1941. This gun was manufactured until 1989.

What is the value of a 12 gauge Lefever Arms Co double barrel shotgun serial 57436 patent 1872 7880858687?
There are many things to consider on old shotguns and this is especially true of Lefever Arms guns. Most Lefever are OLD, yours was made in 1906 or 1907, which puts many of them truly in the antique category. If the gun is lose and rattles when you shake it and has little or none of its original fin…ish it's probably just a wall hanger with a value of no more than a couple hundred bucks. In good or better condition though, and condition, originality (unmodified in any way), and grade are everything, the value can range from $500 to over $20,000. Your best bet is to go to one of the major book stores and get a copy of one of the firearme pricing guides, similar the Kelly Blue Book for auto's, and evaluate the gun yourself. (MORE)

How can you obtain info re a Stanley arms 10 gauge double barrel shotgun approx age where manufactured etc?
That one is too obscure for my books. Try asking the National Rifle Association through their magazine The American Rifleman (you can usually find a copy in the library, good barber shops, or guns shops).
Answer . I'm no expert, but I believe that Mears shotguns, at least some of them, are Belgian made. One I am familiar with has Damascus-twist barrels and exposed hammers. They are representative of a type that was sold during the first part of the 20th (and latter part of the 19th) century.. The…y were mainly mass produced by a number of European firms for export. Unless they have special features or have a documented noteworthy history (owned by a famous person, used in a historical event, etc.) they are classified as "wall hangers". That is, they look cool over the fireplace (although I wouldn't recommend displaying an unsecured firearm), or are just interesting artifacts. Naturally, they are priceless if owned by an ancestor or have family ties.. Like any old gun, they shouldn't be fired with modern ammunition (or fired at all) until checked by a qualified gunsmith. This is especially true if they have Damascus barrels. That can be determined by markings on the barrels, or if the barrels display a swirly, ormamental texture in the metal. Most were designed to fire blackpowder ammunition which has a much lower pressure that modern smokeless ammunition.. Take this for what it's worth. There are always exceptions. In general though, these guns have little collector and utilitarian value. Again, this is just the opinion of an amateur firearms collector. Good luck in your research.. Joe (MORE)

The Crescent Arms "Empire Hammerless" double barrel (20 guage) is not a collectable gun, but is a "shooter". Thus, in shootable condition, it is worth about $200. That's what I paid for mine, strictly for bird hunting.
Yes, it was. But you probably want to know either how old it is or what it is worth. It was made between 1920 and 1948 and is worth $150 to $250, depending on condition.
I have a 12 guage side by side that reads on the left of the receiver: J Stevens Arms Company. next line. Chicopee Falls, Mass.U.S.A. ... above it --SPRINGFIELD-- It has double triggers. It has on the bottom of the barrel locking lug a stamped 7 and a faint circle with an S in it. I have determined …it was made 7/1967 based on an A being 1949. The receiver is charcoal case colored. the barrels say SELECTED FORGED STEEL and the other side says PROOF TESTED 12 GUAGE. It is a neat old piece i received with the barrels a bit rusted, but rescued in a rust dissolver bath(auto industry) and have since sanded and painted flat black.

Is there a 16 gauge double barrel shotgun manufactored by crescent Davis arms corp of chicopee falls mass with a serial?

This is the canned answer to the general question "how much is my gun worth". There is no way that this can be determined via a description of the firearm because condition of the item is critical to its value. In addition, whether the gun is considered to be modern or antique will significantly a…ffect not only its value but its saleability in some jurisdictions. The steps necessary to assess a firearm are to first Clearly identify the manufacturer and model of the firearm along with serial number and significant features. Many people choose to not report the full serial number but instead disguise the least significant digits i.e. 1234XX. Features such as finish, barrel length, custom engraving or carving, and stock material may be significant. It may be useful to consult some of the books on gun values such as "The Official Gun Digest Book if Guns & Prices", the "Official Price Guide to Antique and Modern Firearms", the "Standard Catalog of Firearms", or "Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms". All of these resources can provide information for identifying the firearm. The grading systems used to assign values are usually similar between the books although there can be differences. Once the firearm has been identified and condition determined, the "fair market value" can be assessed by consulting the internet market. AuctionArms.com and GunTrader.com can both provide input as to a gun's present market value. If gun shops and/or gun shows are available in your area, taking your gun in for professional inspection can be informative. Look for businesses or individuals who specialize or deal in that type of gun (take a Luger to a Luger collector rather than a shotgun collector). Remember that these people are in the business and will be looking for a "good deal" if one presents itself. Guns, like everything else, usually aren't worth as much as we would like but they can have appreciable value. Good luck. Bock442 (MORE)
