Whippet was a brand name used by the HD Folsom company on guns it made for the Hibbard, Spencer and Bartlett hardware chain. Folsom and Savage did a lot of business in the 1930's so it is possible that Stevens may have used the Whippet name when they merged with Savage. If I had to guess, I would say it's most likely a Stevens Model 29. The Model 29 was made between 1895-1935. Value depends…
