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.

It will be marked on the receiver/barrel.

If you have a Model 30 pump shotgun, the barrel is not intended to be removed by the user. To do so requires specialized tools such as a receiver block and a barrel wrench. You can clean and lube the shotgun with the barrel attached to the receiver. Contact Savage Arms Customer Service and get an owner's manual for your shotgun.

The Sears Ranger 105-20 16 gauge shotgun came out in the 1930s. The Sears Ranger shotgun has a 26-inch barrel.

Unable to answer as asked. Is it already a shotgun or will it be built from a virgin receiver?

The receiver is the largest metal piece of the shotgun, in other words, the frame of the shotgun. All the other parts, such as barrel, stock, bolt, etc- attach to the receiver. With modern firearms, the receiver will be marked with the serial number. Legally, the receiver IS the firearm- all other parts are simply parts.

It will be marked on the receiver/barrel where it was made.

Check the receiver sides and bottom and the barrel

Check the receiver and bottom of the barrel

Sold by Sears Roebuck. Probably manufactured by Stevens.

You may have to break the shotgun down in to the barrel section and the receiver section first.Look under the barrel section on the flat just ahead of the lug for the serial number.

Check the receiver, barrel(s), under the barrel(s), under butt place.

There is no "break in" shotgun. A "break open" shotgun is a single barrel, double barrel, or combination rifle/shotgun which breaks open in the sense that a lever will unlock the action, allowing the barrel to pivot at a hinge at the front of the receiver, pivoting the rear of the barrel up to expose the chamber. A shells may be loaded into the chamber and the barrel pivoted back to close the action. The act to "break in" a shotgun means to fire it a few times to loosen it up.

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.
