The savage/stevens model 94 shotgun was made from 1926-1945.There was a total production of 934,000 shotguns made during this time frame.

The gauge of a shotgun is directly related to the size of the barrell. In the cases of shotguns the sizes going from biggest to smallest for 'standard' (not all) shotguns is. 10 gauge, 12 gauge, 16, gauge, 20 gauge, and a .410 bore shotgun (410 is not a gauge but a caliber)
I won't swear that there aren't any, but a quick look through several of my best reference books shows NO auto-loading shotguns made by Stevens.
That is not a model number, but is likely the serial number. Unless you have a Model 620 US marked Trench Gun, Stevens pump shotguns have little collectors value.
The lower the gauge the heavier, sheet metal, wire & shotguns...

The serial number range for the Stevens model 520-30 military shotguns is from 30,000-70,000.As to the year of manufacture you will probably have to contact Savage/Stevens directly.
