I would check at Numrich Gun parts corp.They may be found on the web.
I also have the J. Stevens Arms Co mod 258A 20 gauge shotgun. Mine had no stock until today,cut one out of some black walnut just for this old long barrel.The maker J. Stevens And model 258A 20 Gauge shotgun. I put a brown finish insted of blue on this one. It is a lot of fun to shoot too! Sorry i have no idea what it is worth.
I have this model gun however i know very little about it. EBAY e-gunparts.com is an awesome parts site
I would try numrich gun parts corp.first.they can be found on the web.
This gun was made from 1937 to 1965. The Standard Catalog says $50 in NRA Good, but I doubt if it would sell quite that low.
The first place to check would be at a local gunshop. If that fails, try Numrich Gunparts
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. The 258A is a bolt action Shotgun. The 258 is a bolt action shotgun manufactured between 1937-1965 with a two shell detachable box magazine. I would say that 250 is a reach. I would put it around $130.

The slide action Model 820 was manufactured from 1949 to 1954. Stevens pump shotguns are worth around $100 in NRA Good condition. The Model #258A bolt action was made from 1937 to 1965. The Standard Catalog says $50 in NRA Good, but I doubt if it would sell quite that low.
If no local gun shop or gunsmith can find it, you might try contacting the company.

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arms, as the company changed hands many times during the 20th century and in the process many of the records and historical documents were either trashed, lost, or simply forgotten about.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.
