The Springfield Model 84 was made by J. Stevens Arms Company, Chicopee, Mass.
The stevens model 84C was produced from 1936-1945 in the amount of 99,500 guns.
Only made from 1969-1972.
The Stevens "Springfield" Model 83 was manufactured from 1935 to 1939. Value is between $40 to $75.
My information shows that only 3,500 of these rifles were made from 1935-1936.
The Springfield Model 15 was produced by The J. Stevens Company beginning in 1938. Intended as a boy's rifle (A low-caliber, easily used, rifle), it saw production into the early 40's when production tapered off on account of the war effort.
My Springfield model 83 ( J Stevens) is stamped 22 Short, Long and Long Rifle on Barrel. If yours is as well, then yes, it would fire LR rounds.

Mostly the name stamped on the side. Springfield was the economy version of the Stevens line, and Stevens was the economy version of Savage, so they may have a bit less care in the fit and finish or even used cheaper wood, but the parts should be 100% interchangeable.
