If it was made to shoot steel shot and has interchangeable chokes.

The Stevens brand is owned by Savage Firearms. Contact their customer service staff at 800-370-0708 for a definitive answer.

If it has a 3" chamber like mine it will shoot pretty much anything you can throw in it.

The Springfield name was used by Stevens from 1920 to 1948.

I can say that Stevens began production of the model 94 single shot shotguns in the year 1929.and finished in the year 1945.

Dave - Manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms, sometime between 1920 and 1948.

These are worth between 50-100 dollars.

Virtually all of the single shot Stevens 12ga shotguns are going to top out shy of $100. sales@countrygunsmith.net

If you are referring to the single-shot Stevens 95 with the push-botton lock release on the side of the receiver, the gun should be structurally sound enough for steel shot HOWEVER most of these were supplied with full choke barrels. You are going to find that using larger size steel (#1 and greater) will not give decent patterns out of that choke, and, over time, will actually deform the choked section of the muzzle. If you are referring to the antique Model 95 with the top-lever, the answer is absolutely not - period. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Yes- Buckshot, birdshot, or slugs.

50-75 dollars,depending on condition.

Model number is not so important for a single shot by Stevens. Most all singles value between $50 and $150 depending on condition.

They were made in .410 bore, 20, 16, 12 gauge, and may have had 32 and 28 gauge options, though they are rare if they exist. It should say on the barrel what gauge and choke it is.

It was manufactured in the early-mid 60s.

Probably. The name was owned by Sears Roebuck and after a brief period when they owned their own firearms manufacturer (Meriden Arms) Stevens made most of their single shot shotguns.
