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.'
Sometime between 1920 and 1948.
It is a Stevens Model 1929.
The Springfield name was used by Stevens from 1920 to 1948.
No. It couldn't have been manufactured before 1929.
Made by J Stevens Arms between 1920 and 1948.
Manufactured between 1886 and 1916.
Around $50-$75. firstname.lastname@example.org

If it is a typical Stevens double or single barrel there should be a metal lever towards the back of the stock slide it left or right and tilt the barrel down.
I have a 12 Ga. sitting here saying springfield manufactured by J. Stevens arms company. If that helps ya any. It's a single shot that's really short with no searial number or model number.
There have been several variations of the company name, but never just "J Stevens". The "Springfield" name was used from 1920 until about 1948 and during this time the company was called J. Stevens Arms Co. The type is determined by looking at the gun: single shot, double barrel, pump, etc. The gauge, if not marked on the barrel, can be determined by measuring the chamber. 147K MAY be the model number. I have not found this model listed in any of my references, however if it is a single shot or double barrel, few models differ significantly from others, so many are not listed individually.
Contrary to what some believe, Springfield Arms was never a subsidary company of Cresent Arms. Springfeild Arms, like Cresent Arms, were both bought out by Stevens/Savage. Unlike the Cresent, Springfield manufacturing continued after the buy out. Some clarification: Springfield Arms Co was absorbed by Stevens very early, before 1900. Stevens continued to use the Springfield name on certain models of shotgun. Savage absorbed Stevens around 1930 or so, and continued to use the Springfield name on into the 1980's, generally on guns sold to mass-marketers. Crescent Firearms was originally an independent manufacturer that was bought by the major wholesale HD Folsom, which also eventually was absorbed by Savage.
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
The Stevens Model 125, a 22 caliber Bolt-Action, Single-Shot rifle was manufactured between the years of 1898 and 1912 in Westfield, Massachusetts by The Stevens Arms Co.If you Have a Stevens Model 125 with Savage also on the barrel than you have a gun manufactured by The Savage Arms Co. and it would have been made after 1920 when Savage Arms purchased Stevens Arms.I have a Stevens Savage 22 bolt action single shot 22 rifle model 125 and have yet to find the date of manufacture for it. wwworth
Probably Savage/ Stevens/ Springfield
The value of a J Stevens single barrel 410 shotgun from 1922 depends on its condition. This gun in excellent condition is valued between 125.00 and 150.00 as of 2014.
The Stevens/Springfield single-shots routinely bring under $100 at retail. email@example.com
Yes, my grandfather gave me one when I was about 14. It was stolen when I was 24. I am 50 now and haven't found one to relpace it.
If it is not marked on the barrel, you should have a gunsmith measure the chamber length.
I can't locate this particular model, but Stevens/Savage dropped the Springfield line in 1948.
Dave - Manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms, sometime between 1920 and 1948.
