I've got one just like it,and would like to know also. I bought this in the late 60's, 69 probably, used from a pawn shop, for $14.50.Mine years ago, tryed to shoot 3 inch shells and got a face full of fire,but my bolt seems to be bad, as it won't eject properly.Mark markd1299@Yahoo.com
I have a Sears model 101.25 bolt action 3" .410 that is basically a Savage/Stevens model 39 or 59 and the NRA answer guy says they were made in the late '40's through the 1970's. But..the 3" version of the .410 was not introduced until 1934 so that is your starting point on aging. Also, the serial # deal is a mystery to me unless it's under the butt plate(which I've seen before) or written on the inside of the stock at the foregrip(which I've also seen).
410 shells only and only what the barrel is marked for.
This is a Browning Auto-5 Shotgun, 16 guage made in 1950. It is chambered for 2 3/4" 16 ga shells
The Western Field model 30 pump action shotgun and the Stevens model 520 shotgun are one and the same firearm.Savage/Stevens made these for Montgomery Wards.The shotgun in question should show that it was chambered for the 12 gauge shotshell.The length of these shotgun shells were 2 3/4in. If your shotgun is not marked,I would have a gunsmith make a quick check of the chambering for you.This will only take a couple of minutes to do.
Take it to a gunsmith to be sure.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE 3 INCH SHELLS IN A FIREARM NOT MARKED FOR THEM!!!!!!!!! Yes there are manuals for the firearm.
Most commercially available shotgun shells come in boxes of 25.
Air soft shotgun shells are the size of 12 gauge shotgun shells.
Find someone who reloads shotgun shells. They will relieve you of your inventory.
there is no minimum age to get a shotgun certificate but can only purchase a shotgun or shells if 18+ there is no minimum age to get a shotgun certificate but can only purchase a shotgun or shells if 18+
Your shotgun was made for Sears by Stevens, and is their model 311. It should take 2.5 inch and 3 inch .410 shells.
That's a Savage or Stevens model number, but it won't tell us the gauge. Any firearms dealer should be able to tell you the gauge by looking at the gun (unless it is a really unusual size) but a gunsmith can measaure the chambers and also tell you the length of shells it is supposed to use.
Your serial number indicates that your Browning auto-5 sweet sixteen model shotgun was made in Belgium by FN for Browning in the year 1961.
yes it does
The Stevens 59A is a shotgun, not a rifle. It fires .410 ammo, both 2 1/2 and 3 inch shells.
You can use nothing but 410 shells in a 410 shotgun.
No. Very dangerous.
Shot and Slug
Yes, you can.
