Start with Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms. If you have any interest in old guns, it is well worth the $40 price tag, but your public library probably has a recent copy if you just want to read it once.

You sure it doesnt say '44 Shot' instead of '44 Short'? The .44 Shot cartridge was a popular small bore shotshell before the introduction of the .410. I'd suggest a trip to the library. Find the Standard Catalog of Firearms and look at the listings for Stevens. Your shotgun is probably a smoothbore version of the Tip-Up, Ideal, or Favorite rifle.

How can I date and find out the history of a J.Stevens arms Co Springfield model 86C 22 LR that has no serial number and say's patent pending?

Your rifle was made ROUGHLY 1925-1965. These were untility grade rifles, intended for hunting or plinking. They made great boys rifles due to the very slender wrist of the stock. Savage/Stevens/Springfield was at one time the largest gun maker in the US, and made several thousands of the 86 series. Rifles made late in the production had a black tip painted on the forearm. Serial numbers were not required by law on rifles and shotguns until 1968. Many of these guns were also made under hardware store brand names, such as Gambles Store. I have 3 different versions, different grades of wood in sthe stocks, and my grandkids love them.

How do you find out when a Stevens Model 34 Bolt Action was made and what its value is?

I'm sorry I don't have the answer... especially since I also own the same gun. It's been in my family since the mid 60's and I believe when my father bought this rifle it was new in the box. I still have it today.. and it seems to shoot pretty well. I would love to know a little more about it but I don't expect that it's worth much to anyone other than me.Are these rifles or shotguns? The only Stevens Model 34 in the Standard Catalog is a tip-up pocket rifle, not a bolt action. You can tell the approximate age of a Stevens by the way the name is marked. J. Stevens and Company = 1864-1886. J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co = 1886-1916. J. Stevens Arms Co = 1920-late 1940's. Stevens (sometimes Stevens Savage) = 1940's-1991 and after 1998. No Stevens firearms were manufactured 1917-1919 or 1992-1998.I just purchased one from a rather large store/dealer and paid $55 (June 2006). It is a rifle, the barrel reads STEVENS Savage Arms Westfield Mass USA .22 short, long or long rifle MODEL 34. I didn't buy it as a collectible, just like the gun and the price. It's a bolt action with a magazine, no serial number. Would love to find a schematic!ANSWERI have a Savage Arms Stevens Model 34M 22 Mag. bolt action with no serial number.
