Can you shoot steel shot in your Stevens 311a shotgun?
No. Absolutely not.
there is a model 311a double barrel shotgun made by Stevens/savage but have not heard of just an 11a. I have a 20ga 311a given to me by my grandpa and he said it was made in the fifties. You can go to Google and type in Stevens model 311 and will pull up information on this shotgun. Answer Remington made a model 11a but it was not a double barrel it was a semiauto.
What is the value of a JC Higgins Model 1017 sold by Sears Co 16 gauge double barrel shotgun with a 2 3-4 in chamber that says Model 311A on the right?
How can you find out when a 311A Stevens Savage Arms Co was made if you cannot find the serial number?
I have a 20 ga. 311A and they run anywhere from 250 in poor condition to 400 in excellent condition to 800 new in box. I have seen them aucioned on other sites at 200-250 in good condition (or so they claimed). Answer $200-$250 sounds about right for a 12 or 16 gauge. A 20 gauge seems to bring more and .410's can be almost twice as much.
You could post in the classifieds on Gunbroker.com. When you find them (which you will, they are everywhere), they will have to be fitted to your frame by a very good gunsmith, and between the barrels and the fitting it will cost more than if you just bought a gun in good condition. Buy another good gun and you'll have yours for parts!
Sometime between 1948 and 1991. If there is no serial number, then sometime between 1948 and 1968. I'd like to be a little more specific on the date. I have the little circle with an "F" in it. Is there any better or closer date system? The Letter that is circled is a year code. A is 1949. B is 1950 and so on. I have the same year as you so yours is 1954.
A 20 ga. 311A runs anywhere from $250 in poor condition to $400 in excellent condition to $800 new in-box. I have seen them auctioned on other sites at $200-250 in good condition (or so they claimed). $200-$250 sounds about right for a 12 or 16 gauge. A 20 gauge seems to bring more and .410's can be almost twice as much.
How long is a Stevens 311a shotgun and where are the serial numbers located and what are they worth and what years did they make them and are parts hard to find for them?
Here's a partial answer.. I bought a one new for $59.95 from a factory ad in Popular Mechanics magazine,in 1969. They were considered to be one of the cheapest on the market at that time. Mine does not have a recognizable serial number either. I hunted rabbit for many years and eventually cut the barrel to 20 inches for a home defense weapon.
Why is your 311A stamped 2 times in the same spot it all most looks like the 311on the left side look like 3111 and most of the other stamping looks like that?
What is the age and value of a Stevens 311A side X side 12 gauge that is stamped with a Z and A and I in circles under the barrels?
What is the value of a Model 311A double in 20 gauge 2 3-4 chamber proof tested in good condition with the letters K and L stamped on the lock stock and barrel with a C inside a circle?
I HAVE THE CHANCE TO BUY THE SAME THING BUT ITS A 12GA, FOR $195 That Stevens 311A MAY have been made in 1951, depending on where that Circle C is located. In any event, the smaller gauge guns bring more than the 12ga and a 20ga Model 311A in excellent condition would easily sell for $400. A beat-up rustbucket would sell for much less, so condition is everything. email@example.com
