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.

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.

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.

Its hard to say what the exact age and/or value would be. J. Stevens Arms Co. began producing the Model 15 springfield in 1938. It retailed in the Sears and Roebuck catalogue for $3.18. In really good condition it is probably worth about $100.

POSSIBLE that your rifle may have been made for Sears by Stevens (Savage) as a Model 83. Due to multiple mergers of company names between Savage, Springfield, and Stevens, it gets a little murky.

Springfield" was one of the brand names used by Savage Arms Corporation, and they also made guns under the "Stevens" name after they acquired the Stevens company in the 1920s. The Model 87 was sold in several slightly different models under slightly different names until finally discontinued in 1987 hoped that help some This name was used by Stevens/Savage from about 1920 until 1948.
