Springfield Arms shotguns were manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms from 1920 to 1948.
Manufactured sometime between 1920 and 1948.
Yes, I believe it was. I have a Model 53-B (single shot .22LR) and it says on the barrel 'SPRINGFIELD MODEL 53-B, Manufactured by J. Stevens Arms Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass. U.S.A.'
The Springfield Model 84 was made by J. Stevens Arms Company, Chicopee, Mass.
I too would like some information regarding a 20 gauge J. Stevens Arms Company 'Springfield' double barrel shotgun, the only other markings are 5000 on the right side plate and a circled 22 near the trigger guard.
$75 in top condition. email@example.com
The age of your Springfield model 94a shotgun will be between 1926-1945.Stevens made 934,000 of these shotguns during that time span.The value will be between 40-75 dollars on today,s market.
The Stevens "Springfield" Model 83 was manufactured from 1935 to 1939. Value is between $40 to $75.

Look on the top of the receiver with the gun disassembled. You should find it there.
Stevens used the Springfield trade name from 1920 until 1948. Utility doubles bring from $150 to $250, depending on condition.
The 94 series was Savage/Stevens workhorse single-shot shotgun produced for many years and in many variations. Typically can be found for less than $100. www.countrygunsmith.net
I have had mine since 1965.
I suspect you are confusing a patent date marking with a model number. What are the other markings on the gun? firstname.lastname@example.org OK. The best we can do is narrow it to the 1930's. No factory records exist. This was after the Savage takeover, and Stevens was still producing guns in the Chicopee Falls plant. They used the Springfield name as a value-brand.
The Stevens/Springfield single-shots routinely bring under $100 at retail. email@example.com
Not much beyond what is stamped on the gun. Manufactured 1931-1941 by the Stevens division of Savage Arms in Chicopee, Mass.
You posted this under the Iver Johnson topic and that company made a lot of revolvers in Fitchburg, which isn't far from Chicopee Falls. The only arms maker I find in Chicopee is Stevens, but I have no records of a Stevens revolver. Are you sure it is not a tip-up pistol?
Most Stevens shotguns have a model number on the right side of the receiver (5000, 5100, 3xx, 2xx). If the company name is marked "J. Stevens Arms Co", it was made after 1920 when Stevens became a division of Savage. Sometime in the 1940's the "J" was dropped. Riverside shotguns were made by Stevens. I'm not sure when they started and stopped using this name, but a Riverside hammergun should be the Model 215 which was produced from 1913-1932. The Model 215 hammergun was sold as the Springfield-Stevens from 1930-1932. On the left side of the receiver is: Springfield manufactured by J.S. Stevens Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA Pat. Feb. 10-1914
Stevens was founded in 1864 in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts. Savage in Utica, New York, in 1894. Savage purchased the Stevens plant and name in 1920 and continued to make guns with the Stevens name in the Chicopee Falls facility until the late 1940's. The Stevens line was discontinued in 1991, but revived in 1998 or 1999 on a few "commemorative" models.
