The company was known as J Stevens Arms and Tolls from 1886 till 1916. So your gun was made in that time frame. Best I can do

If it is not marked on the barrel, you should have a gunsmith measure the chamber length.

Yes, I have one. Marked J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass., S 321. 26 1/8" barrel, almost mint condition, original stock and barrel have been refinished.

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.

Stevens guns were made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991.

It can be difficult, since they were not marked on the early singles. Would have to know how the barrel is constructed, type of action, receiver profile, etc. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Made between World War I and World War II. No collector interest, value would be under $100. Have it checked thoroughly by a reputable gunsmith before shooting. sales@countrygunsmith.net

410 shells only and only what the barrel is marked for.

if made 1968 or before it wasn't required to have one if it does it will be clearly marked on the barrel

The Stevens 311 was marked as model 5000 from about 1920 to 1931, then 5100 until 1941. Most references just list the 311 as if it had the same model number for the entire production period.

Give me the name exactly as it is marked on the side of the gun. That will determine if it is really 120 years old because the name changed in 1886. Stevens always built solid and dependable guns, but they do not have much collector appeal except for the very early "boys' rifles" and the smoothbore versions of these rifles.

It will be marked on the barrel. The barrel is marked "Made in Portugal".

If your Stevens is a bolt action, it is NOT a visible loader. If it has any part (perhaps the barrel) that is marked as a visible loader, that part has been replaced.

It would be a Stevens Model 238 manufactured between 1920 and 1948. The Ranger 101.2 is a Sears Roebuck designation.
