How can you find information on a J Stevens bicycle rifle by the serial numbers?
You can contact the Stevens historian, Mr John Callahan, 53 Old Quarry Road, Westfield, MA 01085. Send him all the markings and your daytime phone number. His charge is $15 to research a gun
If it was manufactured after Dec 31, 1968, the serial number will be plainly marked on the receiver. There will be some numbers under the barrels, but they may serial numbers or just batch/lot numbers that will not help identify the date of manufacture. Serial numbers were not required on long arms in the US until 1969.
Can anyone give me any information to help determine the year of a Stevens bolt action with a cylinder and no serial number?
How do you find the age and value of a 2520 J Stevens Arms and Tool Co single shot rifle with a serial number?
Prior to the gun control act of 1968, there was no requirement in the US for gun manufacturers to place serial numbers on firearms (though many did anyway). The Stevens 66B was a relatively inexpensive .22 rifle, and has no serial number. My experience with the 66B has been very positive, however, and I think you will find it a joy to shoot.
When did firearm serial numbers become mandatory I have a Remington 572A a Stevens 22410 that do not have SN's?
I have confirmed that the shotgun is indeed a Stevens. Can anyone give me a date of manufacturer based on the above stamping numbers? Serial number lists are not available for Stevens guns, but if you will tell me exactly how the Stevens comapny name is written on the gun, I can give you a general time-period.
Where is the serial number on a Stevens 410-22 over and under with a tenite stock and what is it worth?
