If it is a typical Stevens double or single barrel there should be a metal lever towards the back of the stock slide it left or right and tilt the barrel down.
Gun has TLL 409 on right side of reciever. No markings just SN
The model number should be on the right side.
eBay has them occasionally, as does gunbroker.com and gunsamerica.com. There is a seller on eBay that has one right now, (as of 4/5/13). Seller id is militariamason. Good luck!
Most all shotguns are loaded by "breaking the barrel(s) open, particularly double barrels. Do you mean "Nylon" or possibly teonite. Stevens put a teonite stock on model 5100's (I know, I purchased one in July, 1947 in Beaumont, Texas) right after the war was over. .
front trigger fires right barrel. back trigger fires left. boone
Yes. However, side by side double barrel shotguns are built so that line of sight from the two barrels meet each other, and cross- usually at about 35-40 yards. This means that a slug fired from the right barrel will go the the left of the aiming point beyond that range, the left barrel, slug goes right of the aiming point.
I too would like some information regarding a 20 gauge J. Stevens Arms Company 'Springfield' double barrel shotgun, the only other markings are 5000 on the right side plate and a circled 22 near the trigger guard.
That's a Stevens gun manufactured in the 1930s. A fully functional 12 gauge double is worth $150-$250, depending on condition.
i have a Stevens like the one you speak of.....here is what mine is stamped....hope it helps.....top, patented august 12 1913 right side of receiver trade mark Stevens reg us pat off & fgn Stevens arms company chicopee falls mass. usa left side stamped nitro special.........
There is one for each barrel. The back one is for the left hand barrel and the front is for the right hand barrel.
yes, I have a 311a double barrel 20ga and the left barrel is a full choke and the right barrel is modified. I also have a Springfield 511 double barrel and the chokes are the same on it. If you look at the end of the barrel you can tell one of them is slightly smaller and that is your full choke, that would be the left barrel and the right barrel is modified. I hope that helps. Of course, if they are improved and open there will also be a difference in the measurements. Just take it to a gunsmith and ask him to check. If he has the gauges, it will take him less than a minute and he probably won't even charge you for it.
Made for Sears Roebuck by Stevens. There may be a model number on the right side of the receiver (most likely 5000, 5100, or 311) or a Sears product number on the barrel (101.6?) which could give an approximate date.
At what distance??
The back one is for the left hand barrel and the front is for the right hand barrel.
Yes- but accuracy with slugs in any double barreled shotgun is not the best- the lines of the barrels converge. Imagine a very large X. Right barrel will shoot somewhat to the left, left barrel to the right.
All right...what about it? There is no question there. how old is it
Double barrel hammerless boxlock, right? My cross-reference list says this is a Savage/Stevens 315. I can't find any references that show it ever being sold under the Savage or Stevens name, only as Riverside, Springfield, and apparently various 'store brands'.
Maybe 100 USD to the right person.
Most of all Stevens shot guns give the date on the top of the barrel , mine says it right where it breaks. April 12,1913.
This gun was manufactured for Sears Roebuck by the J. Stevens division of Savage Arms sometime between 1931 and 1941.
That patent date is on several models of Stevens shotguns. Ranger was a trade name sold by Montgomery Ward. It was most likely made sometime between 1920 and 1945.
Roughly the same as the base Stevens 311A. $175-$300 depending on condition and the buyer. www.countrygunsmith.net
there is no serial on it
right around the trigger as a rule The breach is located at the rear of the barrel. A double barrel shotgun that breaks open at the rear end of the barrel is a breach loading weapon. Another example of a breach loading gun would be an artillery piece that was loaded at the rear of the barrel.
