What is the age of a 12 gauge J Steven Arms and Tool Co hammerless single shot serial JE 363?
I just went to my uncles houe and was looking at his two guns..1
was a 12 gua. and a 16. gua Stevens and i was researching..the
company "was" located in chicopee falls, mass. If you were to get
the serial number off of it.. you may be able to find iton the
stock or on the barell. you may check on that n find out.. i am
only 13so really don't know much but i have been researching for
over 2 hours so far but it is between 1878 and 1947 if it doesnt
say savage on it also
Good start for a 13-year-old. I was in my 50s before I knew that
much, or cared to know it. J. Stevens and Company, 1864-1886; J.
Stevens Arms and Tool, 1886-1916; J. Stevens Arms Company,
1920-1942(+/-); J. Stevens, 1942(+/-)-1947; Stevens (or Stevens
& Savage) 1948-1991 and 1999-present.
