Here's a partial answer.. I bought a one new for $59.95 from a factory ad in Popular Mechanics magazine,in 1969. They were considered to be one of the cheapest on the market at that time. Mine does not have a recognizable serial number either. I hunted rabbit for many years and eventually cut the barrel to 20 inches for a home defense weapon.

Depends on model and when it was made. I have a Stevens 84-C that has no SN on it.

Serial numbers were not required before 1968. If it has one, check under the forearm, on the barrel and on the action.

The stevens model 9478 shotgun was made between 1978-1985.

These shotguns were made from 1926-1945.Stevens did not keep records as to the year of production by serial numbers.

It may not have one. Serial numbers were not required by law on rifles and shotguns until 1968.

Check the barrel and receiver. Sn's were not required before 1968

model 77 does not have a serial number,they were made before serial numbers were required

Serial numbers were not required on long arms before Jan 1, 1969. Most manufacturers did not assign serial numbers to small caliber rifles or utility shotguns.

Serial numbers on long guns were not required in the US until 1968, so many manufacturers did not assign them to shotguns and small-caliber rifles.

Your Stevens shotgun was produced from 1978-1985.

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.

Your stevens model 9478 shotgun was made during the years 1978-1985.while serial numbers were on the shotguns I do not believe that serial number records were kept as to the year of production.

Various versions of the 94 were made from 1926 to 1945. Stevens serial numbers were repeated, so exact dating is impossible.

You will have to contact Savage directly for the answer to your question.I beleive that the serial numbers to the Stevens model 311 side by side shotgun are not in the public domain.I can say that the model 311 was discontinued in the year 1989.

It probably does not have one. Serial numbers were not required on shotguns manufactured or imported before 1969.

All my records indicate that stevens did not make a model 337 shotgun.If your stevens shotgun is marked U337 under the receiver,this would be a serial number,not a model number.

Most all Stevens 9478 models were made between 1978-1985

Most likely isn't one these shotguns were over 50 years old and were made before there was a requirement for background checks/ serial numbers.

These shotguns were made by savage/stevens between the years 1986-1989.There was no accurate records kept of the serial numbers as to year of production.

The Model 30 is a take-down gun, with the serial # on the lower tang behind the trigger guard, and alson on the barrel, once removed from the frame. I believe the gun is a Stevens 520 or 620 with Wards name on it.
