Those markings suggest manufacture between 1900-1920. firstname.lastname@example.org
Probably turn of the century
If marked with that version of the company name, it was made sometime between 1886 and 1916. I doubt if anyone can get you much closer than that.
If it is not marked on the barrel, you should have a gunsmith measure the chamber length.
$35 to $75, depending on condition.
410 shells only and only what the barrel is marked for.
if made 1968 or before it wasn't required to have one if it does it will be clearly marked on the barrel
Before attempting to fire this shotgun with ANY ammunition, you need to have a gunsmith check the hinge pin, headspace and rim recess. email@example.com
If your Stevens is a bolt action, it is NOT a visible loader. If it has any part (perhaps the barrel) that is marked as a visible loader, that part has been replaced.
It is a Stevens Model 1929.
It will be marked on the barrel. The barrel is marked "Made in Portugal".
They came in various barrel lengths and choke combinations. If it is not marked on the side of the barrel, you will have to pattern the shotgun to determine the choke
Yes, I have one. Marked J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass., S 321. 26 1/8" barrel, almost mint condition, original stock and barrel have been refinished.
That patent date was used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co, but I can't find 376 listed as a Stevens or Savage model number. Could have been made for a hardware store or mail order business and marked with the model number requested by the retailer.
The Stevens No. 16, also marked Crack Shot, was manufactured between 1900 and 1913.
Made by Stevens before World War II.
Shotguns are described by GAUGE not caliber. Most are marked on the barrel as to the gauge and correct ammuntion for use.
I can say that the marking stevens Arms and Tool company was marked on stevens made firearms from 1886-1915.This time period would include your double barrel shotgun.As to value that would dpend on your shotgun having steel barrel or Damascus twist steel barrel(BLACKPOWDER ONLY).The ovreall condition would also be important.
There have been several variations of the company name, but never just "J Stevens". The "Springfield" name was used from 1920 until about 1948 and during this time the company was called J. Stevens Arms Co. The type is determined by looking at the gun: single shot, double barrel, pump, etc. The gauge, if not marked on the barrel, can be determined by measuring the chamber. 147K MAY be the model number. I have not found this model listed in any of my references, however if it is a single shot or double barrel, few models differ significantly from others, so many are not listed individually.
Please list EXACTLY how the barrel is marked, and if possible send a digital picture. firstname.lastname@example.org
Only use or shoot cartridges that have the same caliber as the one marked on the barrel of your firearm.
SHould be marked on barrel. If not, have a gunmsith check it out.
Made by J Stevens Arms between 1920 and 1948.

No markings were legally required until 1968 (serial numbers). Stevens didn't always mark their guns with a model number, but I've never seen one of their guns without the company name on the barrel. It's possible that the barrel has been replaced or it may have been cleaned a bit too harshly (is the finish completely gone?) or lost when it was polished for a re-blue (does there appear to be more finish than you would expect?). i have a j Stevens a&t co 325 SxS and it has no marking on the barrels however it is marked on the action on the gun and the serial numbers are on almost every pice including the barrel asembly so i know in at least that case the barrels are not marked with a company name or anything besideds a serial number on the bottom of the barrels
