I have one that was given to me when I was born. My birth was in

July of 1952. The man who gave me the gun was a friend of my

fathers. He bought the the gun at Wards in early 1952. I would like

to know who the Manufacturer was.All my research indicates that the

entire SB series of guns were made by Savage/stevens for the

Montgomery wards Company.This will range from the SB033-SB712.I

would say that you have a stevens model 530A side by side

shotgun,These were made in 12,16,20 or 410 gauge.these had 2 3/4in

chambers,boxlock action simular to the model 311 SxS.28inch barrels

with a full and modified choked barrels.The model 530 was made from

1936-1942.There were 8,000 made during this time span.
