Riverside shotguns aren't rare, but the .44 shot cartridge is. If you want to shoot it, you may pay more for a box of shells than the gun is probably worth. The gun will bring $75 to $150, depending on condition.

$25 for one useful only as a source of parts. $100 for one that is factory-new. I'm afraid I have to agree. Riverside Arms Company was a trade name used by the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company on various types of firearms. Single shot shotguns were purely utilitarian, with only the engraved, deluxe Model 195 having any real monetary value.
This name has been used by several companies, but most of the shotguns encountered with this name will have been made by Ithaca around 1930 - 1950. If your father only THINKS it is a century old, I would bet it is one of these. However if he KNOWS it is that old, I have found one listing that says the name was used by Bacon Arms but it does not say whether or not…

The Riverside trade name was used by the Stevens division of Savage Arms from about 1920 to the late 1940's.
