I have a Stevens 87A .22 my grandfather gave me a few months ago. I have been looking things up about mine too. this is from the website. www.savagearms.com.
I have been around guns my whole life, but this was the first gun I have used that you can use it as single shot or a semi-auto. mine has a white stock. I got it refinished last month because he had left it in his closet uncovered.
If manufactured prior to 1969, it doesn't have one.
Parts for a Stevens Model 87A can be found at: http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem.asp?chrMasterModel=089Zz87A
