Best Answer

Riverside was a brand name used by the J. Stevens division of Savage Arms around 1940-1960.

Riverside Arms Co was in business in the late 19th and early 20th century. This company was acquired by the Stevens divisio of Savage Arms sometime prior to WW2. I have a Riverside hammerless flatback 12 ga with a patent date of 1915, still a shootable gun. I have a friend who owns a Riverside with hammers, it also is a shootable gun.

AnswerI have a 16 ga. double with external hammers pat. feb. 10 1914 still shoots, however it is chambered for 2@9/16`` instead of 2@3/4``. Answer"Riverside" was a brand model shotgun produced by the J. Stevens Co. (which was bought out by Savage in 1920) - These were utility grade double barrel shotguns manufactured between 1877 and 1988.
