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

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.

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.

Most commercially available shotgun shells come in boxes of 25.
