Depending on which version (early flat sided stocks are higher) these run about $100. They seem to have been made from the late20s/ early 30's, up until about 1950. Dates are imprecise due to the tangled history of Savage/ Stevens/ Springfield.
AnswerModel 56 or 056 is a .22 bolt action repeater that has a clip magazine. Model 55 or 055 is the same rifle but single shot only.A good source for history and manufacturing date ranges for different Stevens firearms is: http://www.gunvaluesboard.com/firearms-reference-file-stevens-323.html.

Stevens shotguns have always been well-made and dependable. Nothing flashy that attracts the collectors with big money, but they'll throw a load of shot just as far and just as straight. I'd hesitate to guess how many have been produced, but it must be several million. In addition to guns bearing the Stevens name, the company also produced many single shot and double barrel shotguns marked with trade names for Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Western Auto and other retailers. The company was founded in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts, in 1865 as J. Stevens and Company. The name was changed to J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company in 1886. In 1915 the production facilities were sold to New England Westinghouse and used to produce military rifles. In 1920, the name and manufacturing plant were purchased by Savage Arms and operated as a semi-independent subsidiary with the name J. Stevens Arms Company. Beginning about 1948 their guns were marked simply Stevens or both Stevens and Savage. The Stevens name was retired in 1991, but re-introduced on updated versions of the old Stevens Favorite rifles in 1999.
The Springfield Jr. 22 LR was made by Page-Lewis Arms Co. from 1928 until 1933. Springfield Arms Co. never made a rifle with this name. I must be missing something - my Sprinflield Jr does not have Page-Lewis on it. The barrel is stamped with both Sprinfield Jr (at the breech), and Springfield Arms Company 22LR Model 50 on the barrel itself. There is the Springfield US Armory and Springfield Inc., but neither had anything to do with this gun and there was never a manufacturer named Springfield Arms Company. The name was first used, I think, by Page Lewis and in a confusing mess of purchases of one company by another, it was used by Crescent Firearms, Crescent-Davis, and eventually by the Stevens division of Savage Arms. Stevens guns often seem to have a name marked on the gun and a model number in the reference books, but this time we're lucky and have both on the gun. The Stevens model 50 is a bolt action single shot, so could remotely resemble the US 1903 Springfield military rifle and it wouldn't surprise me if they sold it as a Springfield Jr. I can't find any dates of production, but Stevens stopped using the Springfield Arms name on shotguns in 1948. The only reference I have with values for the Model 50 is several years old, but the top price listed is $150. I'll bet it hasn't gone up too much and an "average" price would be less than $100. This is not really an answer. My husband has a Page Lewis Model 50 Springfield Jr. that needs a part for it, the ejector. Someone lost the one on his rifle. Could you tell us where we might find a part for this? Or find a schematic for it? Thanks a lot. Hope to hear from you. Answer: I have a .22 L.R. Bolt action rifle exactly like the one you are talking about. On the barrel it say's "Page-Lewis Arms Company Chicopee Falls. Mass. U.S.A. 22 L.R. Model 50" and back near the bolt it says "Springfield Jr" ANSWER; I also have a rifle that has Springfield Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass. U.S.A. 22 L.R. Model 50 on the barrel and SPRINGFIELD JR. opposite of bolt . I would like to know more history behind this rifle than that which has already been provided. Maybe you could give a site where I might find additional information. ( My gun has been handed down for generations. It's the family Hog killing gun.) Please reply. CHRIS

I just sold mine for 150 dollars.
There is not much history of the coat on record but there are biographies on Isaac Stevens which may provide information on his coat. I recommend you research "The history of Isaac Stevens' coat." or simply "Isaac Stevens".

Well i think it might have been made sometime in 1913, send me a picture if u have one . My father has one him self to and i was wondering the price on it. There is no way to find an exact date of manufacture, but "J. STEVENS ARMS COMPANY" was the name used after Stevens became a division of Savage Arms in 1920. If you know it is at least 80 years old, that narrows it down to a 4 year period. Hate to confuse you further, but, according to "Stevens Pistols and Pocket Rifles" by Kenneth L. Cope, the markings "J.StevensArms" was used as early as 1886! I have a rather modest collection of antique Stevens firearms. If you wish, email me a picture of your gun and I`ll try to identify it for you. Flayderman * 1864-1886 J. Stevens & Co. * 1886-1916 J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. * 1916-1942 J. Stevens Arms Co. The Blue Book * Founded 1864 as J. Stevens & Co. * 1886 Changed to J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co. * 1916 Plant sold to New England Westinghouse for manufacture of Mosin-Nagant Rifles. * 1920 Sold to Savage Arms and manufactured guns marked J. Stevens Arms Co. * This designation dropped in late 1940's and only the name Stevens used up to 1990 when it was discontinued. The Standard Catalog * 1864 began business as J. Stevens & Company * 1888 incorperated as J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company * 1920 taken over by Savage Arms. I'd say that if it doesn't include the "AND TOOL" part of the name, it's a Savage/Stevens made after 1920. Joe - about $75 in good useable condition. Not a lot more even if in Excellent condition. to whom this may concern My stepdad has one of these shotguns that when bought it came with two barrels one is a 12 and the other is a 20. He has told me that the barrels where 10 and 12 but on my findings it was the other way. On the 20 gauge barrel it says J.Stevens A&T where it was produced and the patent date sept 6 1864 that is stamped big. On the other barrel it is printed very small. I was told that it was bought new by his great grandfather or his great great grandfather it has been use by my stepfather many time when he was a kid it still functions but he will not let me take and shoot it once it does not look pretty but when your well over a hundred years old time takes its toll.If anyone wants to know something about it you can email me at Lfouse@peoplepc.com. == Fladderman's is referring to the company name changes and not necessarily the MARKING name changes. Here is what the only definitive reference book on Steven's guns says concerning the markings on the guns: 1864-1886 "J. Stevens & Co. Chicopee, Mass. Pat. Sept. 6, 1864" or "J. Stevens & Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. Pat. Sept. 6, 1864" ............................................................................................................................... 1886-1916 "J. Stevens A & T Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA Pat. Sept. 6, 1864" or "J. Stevens Arms Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA" .............................................................................................................................. 1916-1942 "J. Stevens A & T Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA" ................................................................................................................................... Reference: Stevens Pistols And Pocket Rifles by Kenneth L. Cope, publ. Museum Restoration Service, 1971. I happen to have a Stevens single barrel 12 GA with a known family history going back to the 1913-1915 period when it was first used and it has the marking "J. Stevens Arms Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA" which puts it in the pre-1916 period, so it holds true.

No. J. Stevens and Company 1867-1886. J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, 1886-1915. J. Stevens Arms Company 1915-c.1940. Stevens c.1940-1991. The company was purchased by New England Westinghouse in 1915 and no Stevens guns were manufactured 1916-1919. It became a division of Savage Arms in 1920. Most Stevens firearms manufactured after 1948 carry both the Stevens and Savage names.I can't provide an answer to the question,,,, I am looking for information on a gun that I have..... It is marked as follows,,, J. STEVENS A & T CO.CHICOPEE FALLS MASS. USA PAT APR 1794ON THE OTHER SIDE 22 LONG RIFLEON THE UNDER SIDE OF THE LEVER ACTION A NUMBER 201THE GUN IS NOT FOR SALE,,,, I AM LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON THE AGE OF THE GUN AND HISTORY ABOUT IT.....Any suggestions and/or information would be greatly appreciated....John42 in KYHi John;The rifle that you are describing is the same model that I am refurbishing for my Grandson. It was called "The Boys Gun." This was a gun that a father would buy for the sons first gun. I am just a novice but, I have lived in the Hampden county of Massachusetts [which includes Chicopee Falls, and Westfield, MA].The stamping on your Gun is the same as mine with the exception of the number stamped on the bottom of the action case. Your number, 201 and my number, 682, I think is the production number of the gun. This would put your rifle closer to the date that the patent was issued. The information stamped on the top of the barrel shows the manufacturer [J, Stevens Arms & Tool Company]. First factory was in Chicopee Falls, MA, [They also made machine tools and guages and were in competition with the Starret tool company in Athol, MA]. Until they moved to the Westfield, MA plant of the Savage arms, the guns made in Westfield, carried the name of both Stevens and Savage until the Stevens Name was dropped. The rest of the stamping on the gun, is the year that the gun was patented [USA patented April 1894]. I have seen a few of these guns for sale any where from $175.00 to $1000.00 - depending on the shape of the gun. Our gun has been handed down since new. We do not know the date that it was purchased or when it was manufactured.
