Stevens model 237 is a prewar modelThe model 237 bolt action single shot 20 gauge shotgun was made from 1934 to 1939 the gun was based on their Model 37 single shot bolt action 410 shotgun it was replaced by the model 237A . The 237A was a post war model wich has differant cocking piece and a safety lever one the right side rear of the receiver it also has a differant trigger guard inleted diecast type. The model 237 is a prewar model wich has the old type safety wich is incorperated in the cocking piece and has a simple stamped metal trigger guard held in place with screws. I own a 237it is also marked Ranger wich means it was sold by Sears. At any rate the model 237 is about 70 years old it is vintage and mine has proven to be a very good game gun . in good condition its worth only about 100 bucks .

The ranger 101.3 was made by Stevens arms for sears, around WW2. Mine was inherited from my grandfather, who bought it as a young man. Good luck finding parts, however, I found some info online that this is similar to the Stevens model 237.
