If both the Stevens and Savage names are on the gun, it was made between 1948 and 1991. Model 258 is a double barrel, right? (don't have my reference book at hand) If so, if fully functioning and in decent shape, it should be worth around $250. I just inherited one of the same. The fact that no one knows could be a good indication of the rarity of the item... Mine is well used, and abused, but was used by my dad and uncles, and therefore is worth much more to me than "the market price", what ever that may be. Lack of information doesn't necessarily mean it's rare, just that information on this particular model isn't readily available. This is typical for all Savage and Stevens arms, as the company changed hands many times during the 20th century and in the process many of the records and historical documents were either trashed, lost, or simply forgotten about. Most of the Stevens information you will find will be about the single shot rimfire rifles, while most Savage information will be about the Model 99 lever-action rifles as these are the most collectable arms produced by these two companies. The Savage Arms 258A I have seen is a 20 gauge bolt action clip feed shotgun. I also am trying to find information on it. 1936-1945. The Standard Catalog agrees with the first post - a double barrel boxlock. Actually, if we are in fact referring to the Stevens model 258A, I have one in my lap and it's a bolt-action, magazine fed 20 gauge, single barrel shotgun. I posted the first answer when I was away from my library. Intended to check my references and repost, but somehow didn't until it popped up on my watchlist again. The 1936-45 correct, but it is a bolt action worth $25 to $125 depending on condition.

The exact value of a Savage Arms Stevens model 77m shotgun is actually dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would be the age and condition of the shotgun.

Stevens made firearms in Chicopee Falls from 1864 to 1990 but the association with Savage did not begin until 1920 and if the gun is marked with both names, it was probably not made until after WWII. If it was manufactured after 1968 it WILL have a serial number, but if made earlier it MAY have one. A utility double barrel that shows some wear but is still functional is worth about $200-250.

Your shotgun was made by savage/stevens for montgomery wards(westernfield).

The Stevens Model 58 Salvage Shotgun with no serial number was probably manufactured in the early 1940's in Chicopee Falls MASS. It's value could range from $400.00 to $ 1500.00 depending on condition. If it has the Chicopee Falls Mass manufacturer on the barrel a good starting point is $ 500.00 and up depending on condition.

The Stevens Savage Model 124 12 gauge shotgun was made from 1949 to 1954. The serial number will signify the actual year of manufacture.

If it has both the Stevens and Savage names it was made sometime after the mid 1940's. If it has no serial number, it was made before 1969.

They were made for a long time. If it has a serial number, it is post-1968.

Depends on it's condition. Stevens is antique and no-longer in business Stevens Arms was an American firearms manufacturer founded by Joshua Stevens in 1864. The company introduced the .22 Long Rifle round and made a number of rifle, shotgun, and target pistol designs before being bought by Savage Arms in 1920. After 1920, Stevens made training rifles and machine-guns for the US Military. Savage stopped using the Stevens brand by 1950. (wiki)

May not have one- not required by law on rifles and shotguns until 1968.

All my records indicate that stevens did not make a model 337 shotgun.If your stevens shotgun is marked U337 under the receiver,this would be a serial number,not a model number.

Springfield was a trade name used by the J. Stevens Arms division of Savage Arms from about 1920 to 1948. Savage-made firearms marketed under the Springfield brand name were prevalent at least into the 1960's. The Chicopee Falls marking on this shotgun indicates manufacture between 1946 and 1959. I have most, if not all, the Savage catalogs and factory parts manuals from 1920 forward and am having difficulty finding a '929' model... can you verify that model number? sales@countrygunsmith.net

If it has both the Stevens and Savage names on it, then it was manufactured after 1945 and before 1969.

The Riverside model number will be identical to the Stevens number.

Based on a response that I saw on another blog - SN's were not required until 1968. The Stevens 77D was manufactured from 1940 to 1960 and therefore may not have one.

User Avatar

Depends on model and when it was made. I have a Stevens 84-C that has no SN on it.

The value of a Stevens 820 B shotgun is actually dependent upon a number of factors. Some of those factors include the age and condition of the shotgun.
