I HAVE THE CHANCE TO BUY THE SAME THING BUT ITS A 12GA, FOR $195 That Stevens 311A MAY have been made in 1951, depending on where that Circle C is located. In any event, the smaller gauge guns bring more than the 12ga and a 20ga Model 311A in excellent condition would easily sell for $400. A beat-up rustbucket would sell for much less, so condition is everything.

If it is not stamped on the barrel or you do not trust the barrel markings, the only reliable way is to have a gunsmith make a casting of the chamber.

that's the date code, check the date code stamped on the barrel. Remington Society of America, Manufactured Date link has the details. value is dependent on condition, look for like condition on

The original factory barrel will have the name Winchester and the chambering of the gun stamped into it.The color is another tell, the color on the chamber should match the barrel exactly.Look at the joint between the barrel and the chamber, can you see any bare metal at the end of the barrel?A replacement will have to have had the threaded end of the barrel milled after it was blued to get it to fit right.

No. The savage has its own chamber design. Use only what is stamped on the barrel.

These where made from 1909-1936. To get the actual manufacture date you have to use the letters that are stamped on the barrel (Remingtion does not use the serial numbers for this). If it is in 90% condition then its worth about $350.

Slide the Top Lever to the right to open the chamber. Turn the shotgun upside down. Look at the end of the barrel between the receiver and barrel. Get a flashlight and you'll see a series of numbers stamped in the bottom of the barrel.

It should be stamped on the barrel It should be stamped on the barrel

Many Remington firearms may be dated by the letter code stamped on the barrel. This combination of 2 or 3 letters is rather small, and is stamped on the barrel on the LEFT side, at the very rear of the barrel. You may need a magnifier and a bright light. Once you find the letters, go to the link at the bottom of this page to decipher the date made. Good luck!

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.

Plain barrel, solid rib, or ventilated rib? Condition? Plain barrel in 60% condition lists for $365. Vent rib in 100% is $1495. Manufactured in 1957.

0-1000 USD depending on EXACTLY what you have and its condition.

Remington used a series of letters stamped on the barrel to indicate month and date of manufacture. IF the barrel is original to the gun, that should give you a pretty close answer. Letters are on the left side, just forward of the receiver. The Remington Collectors website has a chart of the letters, and the corresponding years. this page shows letters that are stamped on the barrel of older guns that tells you the month and year of production. GUESSING by comaring some in my collection to yours. Id say Early 1960s. On the left side of the barrel next to the receiver is two or three letters stamped below and behind where the choke is stamped in the barrel. Compare those to the webpage. Nice old guns but not "REAL" collector issue till its over 50 yrs old. Hope this helps. skrsr

Stamped on barrel, Barrel and reciever one piece.

The rear of the barrel IS the chamber.

Remingtons are best dated not from a serial number, but from the barrel code. This is 2 or 3 very small letters stamped on the LEFT side of the barrel very close to the receiver (frame) See link below for interpreting the letters.

2 3/4, but recommend looking on the left side of the barrel. It is stamped there on the side.

I have one and it is a 7x57 caliber is stamped on the left side of the barrel.

A functioning utility double barrel will bring 500.00-1200.00 depending on condition and grade.
