Contrary to what some believe, Springfield Arms was never a subsidary company of Cresent Arms. Springfeild Arms, like Cresent Arms, were both bought out by Stevens/Savage. Unlike the Cresent, Springfield manufacturing continued after the buy out.

Some clarification:

Springfield Arms Co was absorbed by Stevens very early, before 1900. Stevens continued to use the Springfield name on certain models of shotgun. Savage absorbed Stevens around 1930 or so, and continued to use the Springfield name on into the 1980's, generally on guns sold to mass-marketers.

Crescent Firearms was originally an independent manufacturer that was bought by the major wholesale HD Folsom, which also eventually was absorbed by Savage.

How do you find information on J Stevens double barrel shotguns?

Most Stevens shotguns have a model number on the right side of the receiver (5000, 5100, 3xx, 2xx). If the company name is marked "J. Stevens Arms Co", it was made after 1920 when Stevens became a division of Savage. Sometime in the 1940's the "J" was dropped. Riverside shotguns were made by Stevens. I'm not sure when they started and stopped using this name, but a Riverside hammergun should be the Model 215 which was produced from 1913-1932. The Model 215 hammergun was sold as the Springfield-Stevens from 1930-1932. On the left side of the receiver is: Springfield manufactured by J.S. Stevens Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA Pat. Feb. 10-1914
