The rifle that you are describing is the same model that I am refurbishing for my Grandson. It was called "The Boys Gun." This was a gun that a father would buy for the sons first gun. I am just a novice but, I have lived in the Hampden county of[which includes Chicopee Falls, and Westfield, MA].The stamping on your Gun is the same as mine with the exception of the number stamped on the bottom of the action case. Your number, 201 and my number, 682, I think is the production number of the gun. This would put your rifle closer to the date that the patent was issued. The information stamped on the top of the barrel shows the manufacturer [J, Stevens Arms & Tool Company]. First factory was in Chicopee Falls, MA, [They also made machine tools and guages and were in competition with the Starret tool company in Athol, MA]. Until they moved to the Westfield, MA plant of the Savage arms, the guns made in Westfield, carried the name of both Stevens and Savage until the Stevens Name was dropped. The rest of the stamping on the gun, is the year that the gun was patented [USA patented April 1894]. I have seen a few of these guns for sale any where from $175.00 to $1000.00 - depending on the shape of the gun. Our gun has been handed down since new. We do not know the date that it was purchased or when it was manufactured.
no Co. is an abbreviation for company But there are differences between: * J. Stevens and Co. * J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co. * J. Stevens Arms Co. * Stevens and * Stevens - Savage
Any Stevens firearm that is marked J Stevens Arms and Tool co.Was produced between the years 1886-1915.That is as close as I can get.
The J Stevens Arms and tool Company name on their firearms was used from 1886-1915.This model was made by Stevens from 1912-1932.We can deduce that your Model 235 was made sometime between 1912-1915.I hope that you find this information useful.
Massachusetts Arms Company operated from 1860 to 1893. The name was later used by J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co, J. Stevens Arms, and Crescent Firearms.
Your Stevens model 235 was made between the years 1912-1916.This is when the Name Stevens arms and tool Co was changed to Stevens arms Co.The model 235 was made from 1912-1935.So the years listed fit into both the name and manufacturing time frame that your shotgun was produced.I hope that you find this informative.
About 1886, if the marking is J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co.
Impossible to answer without more information.The manufacture date can be approximated by the company name.J Stevens & Co = 1864-1886J Stevens Arms & Tool Co = 1886-1916J Stevens Arms Co = 1920-late 1940sStevens = 1940s-1990
Stevens guns were made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991.
J Stevens Arms & Tool Co was the barrel marking used from 1886-1916, so that's as close as we can get without knowing the model of the rifle. firstname.lastname@example.org
I can say that your shotgun being marked with J Stevens Arms and Tool Co.indicates that it was made from 1886-1916.That marking was only used during these years of production.
Springfield Arms was a trade name used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co beginning around 1920. After Stevens was pruchased by Savage Arms, that company continued making Springfield Arms rifles and shotguns until 1948.
The Stevens No. 16, also marked Crack Shot, was manufactured between 1900 and 1913.
Like all other Stevens guns, yours was made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991.
If it is marked "J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co" it was made between 1886 and 1916 when "Arms & Tool" were part of the company name. Value will depend on the configuration and condition. Side hammers usually go as mantle decorations, especially if they have damascus barrels ($75 for single shots, $125-$150 for double barrels). Boxlocks (back hammer or hammerless) in good shape can bring $75 (single) to $250 (double) as shooters.
With that form of the Stevens name, it was made between 1886 and 1915. Single shots are worth from $35 to $90, depending on condition.
Have it examined by a gunsmith.
The Model 335 was made between 1912 and 1935. The "Arms and Tool" part of the company name was dropped in 1915, so yours must have been made 1912-1915.
Sometime between 1886 and 1916 For more info contact John Callahan 53 Old Quarry Rd Westfield Mass 01085 $15 per gun
Marked with that version of the company name, it would have been made between 1886 and 1916.
# What are the Different between a model and a tool?
Riverside Arms was a name used by J, Stevens Arms and Tool Co (which became part of Savage Firearms) between 1915 and 1940. There are no public records for dates of manufacture.
I can't find production dates for a model 357, but if it is marked J Stevens Arms Co (NOT J. Stevens and Co or J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co), the gun was made no earlier than 1920 and before 1950.
hard to say stevens records were lost after ww1
Your Stevens model 200 shotgun was produced around circa 1910.
J.Stevens Arms and Tool Co - the company that made the gun Electrosteel - Stevens trade name to make you think it's better than others. Choke bored - Barrel is restricted at the muzzle to hold a tighter shot pattern.
