Sold through Shapleigh Hardware, St Louis, c. 1890-1930. Most likely manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT. No serial number lists are available for Crescent Arms.

MISSISSIPPI VALLEY ARMS CO was a tradename used by Shapleigh Hardware of St. Louis on shotguns made by Crescent Fire Arms Company, 1893-1930. A .410 would be unlikely to have been made by Crescent before WWI. 1903

The exact value of a Savage Arms Stevens model 77m shotgun is actually dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would be the age and condition of the shotgun.

Contact springfield arms and ask them. They should be able to look it up and tell you.

I can say that your shotgun being marked with J Stevens Arms and Tool Co.indicates that it was made from 1886-1916.That marking was only used during these years of production.

You probably won't find a serial number on it, and if you do, it won't help you determine the age. This name was used by Crescent Fire Arms (1893-1930), WH Davenport Arms (1891-1910), and J. Stevens Arms (1920-c. 1948) on guns made for Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis (1868-present).

Stevens/Savage used the Riverside name from about 1920 to 1945.

I have a Continental Arms Co. 12 gauge shotgun that is probably about 70 years old that belonged to my grandfather. Any ideas of value and where do I go to sell it?

I have been told it is impossible to pinpoint the age of this company's firearms as they did not SN their weapons. I am trying to get a verified age on a W&A shotgun my grandfather had when I was a boy back in the early 50's.

Either made by Crescent Arms of Norwich, Ct, or imported from Belgium by H&D Folsom of New York City. Probably between 1893 and 1913.

Can't give you an exact date, but Stevens used the Riverside name from about 1920-1945 according to my notes.

They were made for a long time. If it has a serial number, it is post-1968.
