Without knowing the exact overall condition as well as details like matching parts, its pretty hard to say. The low for shot out barrel and bad finish, rough wood, completely functional, all original parts, is in the $300.00 range. if conditions are better, or rare options such as special sights, wood or triggers, then the price would be higher. Rust, pitting,reblue, deep metal wear, changed out or missing sights, junk wood, blacksmith repairs to metal parts, replaced or relined barrel. then the price could go down.
The Stevens will accept whatever caliber designation is stamped on the side of the barrel.
$35 to $75, depending on condition.
* Full ** Modified *** Improved Stamped on the Barrel.
There were too many various rifles made by J Stevens between 1896 and 1933 to identify yours. You will need to have the rifle identified by a gun smith or collector to be able to learn more about it.
Manufactured sometime between 1920 and 1948.
Does it say "Mass" or "Massachusetts" Arms?
I'm having the same probem. Except mine has matching numbers (33NL) stamped on the bottom of the barrel and inside the triger housing. No other numbers Mine also says "Springfield" manufactured by "J.Stevens Arms Company" Chicopee Falls, Mass. U.S.A. Other markings - top of barrel left side -proof tested 410 bore/---3 inch chamber---/ top of barrel right side - Selected Forged Steel. Any info. call.....317/523-1438
Manufactured between 1886 and 1916.
Sometime between 1920 and 1948.
Whats it worth
Yes, I have one. Marked J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass., S 321. 26 1/8" barrel, almost mint condition, original stock and barrel have been refinished.
The "J.Stevens" name was shortened to "Stevens" in 1940. What you need to look for is the chamber size, which should be stamped on the barrel. It needs to be 2 & 3/4 inches to shoot modern ammo. Also Stevens usually stamped near the chamber size if the barrel was proof tested. My Stevens single is stamped "Proof Tested Steel" and it handles modern ammo well, but kicks like a mule. To be really safe, let a gunsmith look at it.
Just the barrel?

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.........
Yes, I believe it was. I have a Model 53-B (single shot .22LR) and it says on the barrel 'SPRINGFIELD MODEL 53-B, Manufactured by J. Stevens Arms Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass. U.S.A.'
$100 - $200, assuming in useable condition but not 100% new condition
The Stevens 311 was marked as model 5000 from about 1920 to 1931, then 5100 until 1941. Most references just list the 311 as if it had the same model number for the entire production period.
Stevens 12ga. /mod dhead naught
evidently a misprint, may be worth something to a collector.
I believe it is 567 years old
Stevens made firearms in Chicopee Falls from 1864 to 1990 but the association with Savage did not begin until 1920 and if the gun is marked with both names, it was probably not made until after WWII. If it was manufactured after 1968 it WILL have a serial number, but if made earlier it MAY have one. A utility double barrel that shows some wear but is still functional is worth about $200-250.

To be really safe, let a gunsmith look at it. "J. Stevens" was used from 1930 to 1948. Any gun built by Savage/Stevens in that time period will have chambers 2 3/4 or longer. If it also says "& Co" or "A & T" it will be older and may not.
