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 Massachusetts [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.
yes it is.
About 1886, if the marking is J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co.
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.
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
The Stevens No. 16, also marked Crack Shot, was manufactured between 1900 and 1913.
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.
