Just purchased a Model 83 from a gentleman who states that he bought it new originally in 1940, when he was about 9 or 10 at the time. Introduced in 1935 and dropped from production in 1939. The Stevens Springfield rifle was also made for Sears's and was called the Ranger model 103 and there was also a model made for J.C. Higgins They sold for about $25.00
You have a JStevens Arms Co double barrel shotgun model 5100 with Springfield written on it also has a single trigger roughly when were these made?
The 5100 was made from 1931 to 1941. I didn't know a single trigger was available in the Springfield line. I own an old Springfield double barrel 20 gauge, serial number E67029. Is Springfield the actual model name, I see no reference anywhere to a model 5100. How do I verify what I have. Well, Apollo50, tell us what IS marked on it and maybe we can tell you something.
Check out a copy of Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms from the local library to determine exactly which US Springfield rifle you have. Value will depend on the graded condition, completeness, and originality of the gun. If it is a Model 1868, one about 10 years old gives a value of $250 in poor condition and $800 in excellent. The Springfield Model 1864 is a.k.a. the Model 1863 type II. Value is subjective, however…
