The Standard Catalog of Firearms lists 67 different side by side models made by Stevens. Many of them had exposed hammers, either back-hammer boxlocks or sidelocks, and most were manufactured during the time "A&T" was included in the name (1886-1916). If your gun has twist or damascus barrels, it is basically a wallhanger. If it also has side hammers, then at least it is a wallhanger with some value - generally $125-$150. If it has fluid steel barrels, regardless of the hammers, it could still be a useable gun if approved by a qualified gunsmith. Value as a shooter would be $200-$250.
I can't find production dates for a model 357, but if it is marked J Stevens Arms Co (NOT J. Stevens and Co or J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co), the gun was made no earlier than 1920 and before 1950.
The model number should be on the right side.
Made between 1890-1920.
You can find information about Russell Arms Co. shotguns online at places like Gun Trader or at many local gun stores. You can also find information online at Shotgun World or Arms List.
Impossible to answer without more information.The manufacture date can be approximated by the company name.J Stevens & Co = 1864-1886J Stevens Arms & Tool Co = 1886-1916J Stevens Arms Co = 1920-late 1940sStevens = 1940s-1990
Stevens Aems Co. Model 39 we are trying yo find the date on one right now.
Both 'King Nitro' and 'Central Arms Co' are trademarks of the Shapleigh Hardware Co, which was a major catalog retailer from the late 1800's well into the 20th century. The shotguns marketed under that name were made for Shapleigh by different companies, notably Davenport Firearms, Crescent, Hopkins & Allen, and Stevens. We'd have to see the shotgun to determine which manufacturer actually made the shotgun. www.countrygunsmith.net
I can't find this model number, but that form of the company name was used from 1920 until 1948, and a 410 double will bring $200-$300, depending on conditon.
