If it is marked "J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co" it was made before 1920 and, of course, after the 1907 patent date. If it has exposed hammers and twist or damascus barrels, it's primary value is as a mantle decoration (probably $125-$150), but if it is hammerless with fluid steel barrels and 2 3/4" chambers, it could still be a shooter ($250+/-) if checked and approved by a competent gunsmith. Why are you so quick to condemm anything that has Hammers , twist or Damascus Barrels. Enlighten yourself and start reading the Double Gun and Single Shot Journal. Competent people there have tested these old guns with proof loads and found none to be lacking in strength . What you are saying has all been debunked. I will take a Double or single Damascus barreled gun to the field any day, sure i will measure the chambers and fit my ammunition to the gun and not fire proof loads in it everytime. Clue yourself in and take some advice from someone who has shot for a long time, your maximum loads and 3 inch shells wont fill your bag if you cant put them in the right place .
The patent date you are looking at does not indicate a year of manufacture. Stevens made many different models of double-barrel shotgun. Which model do you have? firstname.lastname@example.org
I believe that is a model 311. I have the same double barrel.

The patent for Newport Model CN double barrell shotgun is 1915, but Newport was a named given to guns made by J Stevens, Ivers Johnson, and Crescent Arms. So most likely it was made in the early to mid 1900's.
That patent date identifies a Stevens single shot.

It's an off-branded Stevens Model 311, worth $150-$250, made between 1920 and 1948.
That patent date is on several models of Stevens shotguns. Ranger was a trade name sold by Montgomery Ward. It was most likely made sometime between 1920 and 1945.
You need to identify the make and model of the shotgun. Dozens of different makes of guns show a browning patent on the barrel. Recheck and re-ask the question - Thank you
No. Many manufacturers have used Browning's patents. Your gun was made by Savage/Stevens. firstname.lastname@example.org
