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.
Stevens 520 pump
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.
Utility grade shotgun made by Stevens for catalog distribution. Have a good gunsmith check it over before you attempt to use it. email@example.com
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
I believe that this model of shotgun like so many others was made by Crescent Firearms Co.This company made over 100 different Guns which used trademark names for the business that ordered them.Your double barrel shotgun will bring between 100-185 dollars today depending on the overall condition of the shotgun and bores.
The Stevens Model 520 was built on a Browning patent and so marked. Stevens also built the gun for Sears before World War II under the 'Ranger' tradename, so if you have a slide-action shotgun marked 'Ranger' and 'Browning Patent' then that is what you have.
July 10, 1902 Patent application was filed on a pump action shotgun that would become the Stevens Model 520.
No. Many manufacturers have used Browning's patents. Your gun was made by Savage/Stevens. firstname.lastname@example.org
Made in 1904. Value depends on grade and condition.
how old is my price double shotgun serial number 35627
The most consistent answer to this question that I have seen is: Shotguns labeled 'Ranger, Patent April 20, 1915, Proof Tested 12 Gauge' were made by Savage/Stevens Firearms and marketed through Montgomery Ward. However, the design may have begin with Springfield
That patent date indicates a J. Stevens product.
Single shot = $35 - $90, Double barrel = $100 - $250, depending on condition.

That patent date was used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co, but I can't find 376 listed as a Stevens or Savage model number. Could have been made for a hardware store or mail order business and marked with the model number requested by the retailer.
It is a Stevens shotgun, based on a Browning patent. Inexpensive.
This Shotgun was made by Stevens their model. 520. Made from 1930's to 1950'S Although the shotgun was Browning patent marked, it was not made by Browning.
