Need a bit more description. Is this a pistol? If so, do you have a detachable wire stock for it? Would the description "tip-up" action seem appropriate for the method of loading it? These were called "pocket shotguns" and their status with the BATF is questionable if the barrel is less than 18" or the gun is less than 26" long without the stock. A few of the Stevens Favorite and Ideal models were also made with a smoothbore for shot shells.
Have it examined by a gunsmith.
it was made approx. 1896-1916
The Stevens No. 16, also marked Crack Shot, was manufactured between 1900 and 1913.
Your Stevens model 200 shotgun was produced around circa 1910.
MOST of the single shot shotguns do not have really high values. The Stevens is a good gun- dependable, reliable, well made- but not a lot of collector interest. Depending on condition, a Stevens single may be worth between $50-$175. I keep a few of the singles around as loaner guns to new shooters- they are a very good shotgun for a "first shotgun".
The "Arms & Tool" was part of the Stevens name from 1886 to 1915. A .410 would not have been produced prior to 1900. A single shot would be worth $50-$90 or a double barrel $100 to $300. Is it marked ".410"? A .410 shell would fit in an older model chambered for the shorter .44-shot cartridge, but should not be fired in one. Some of the Stevens Favorites and Ideals were available in this chambering and although they aren't worth very much if well-used, they can get pretty pricey if approaching like-new condition.
Many of the shot guns are valued in price close to $500 each. The amount will vary depending upon the condition that it is in.
I dont know age, but worth about $65
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.
This rifle was known as the 44 and a half and is very desirable to most gun collectors. This piece if in good condition will bring between $400 and $900.
Massachusetts Arms Company: Trade name used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company on firearms for Blish, Mizet and Silliman Hardware Company of Atchinson, KS. The name is also attributed to Crescent Firearms, but a single shot with a Chicopee Falls address is almost certainly a Stevens.
The 44XL shot cartridge was a specific chambering. Have a gunsmith look at it and determine if it can be used with or converted to 2 1/2" .410 shells. firstname.lastname@example.org
i don't know this answer but i have a this exact shotgun that was patented on this exact date that was given to me from my grandpa
Several manufacturers could have made such a pistol, but the most likely suspect would be J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co.
Absolutely NOT. email@example.com
So, what is the model number? firstname.lastname@example.org
Marked with that version of the company name, it would have been made between 1886 and 1916.
Please include the model number and serial number if it can be seen to get a accurate age to your rifle.
This will help you identify the approximate year. 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. They are generally valued around $150 -250
The Stevens Model 125, a 22 caliber Bolt-Action, Single-Shot rifle was manufactured between the years of 1898 and 1912 in Westfield, Massachusetts by The Stevens Arms Co.If you Have a Stevens Model 125 with Savage also on the barrel than you have a gun manufactured by The Savage Arms Co. and it would have been made after 1920 when Savage Arms purchased Stevens Arms.I have a Stevens Savage 22 bolt action single shot 22 rifle model 125 and have yet to find the date of manufacture for it. wwworth
That is the date a patent covering some feature of the gun was issued, not the date it was manufactured. This date may be found on several shotguns made by J Stevens Arms and Tool Company and its later operations as J Stevens Arms, Stevens/Savage, and Savage, so about all we can say about its age is that it was made sometime between 1900 and 1991. Almost any Stevens single shot made after 1900 is worth between $25 rusted or busted and $100 like new.
sears sold this rifle in the 70s sears sold this rifle in the 70s
Of course rifle condition is a big factor. If its mint condition I would say about $275
Dave - Manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms, sometime between 1920 and 1948.
