Your guns were made between 1886 and 1916 when "Arms & Tool" were part of the company name. The "low ID numbers" don't mean much as they are not true serial numbers and may have been used over and over (every 10,000 guns probably). Value will depend on the configuration and condition. Side hammers usually go as mantle decorations, especially if they have damascus barrels ($75 for single shots, $125-$150 for double barrels). Boxlocks (back hammer or hammerless) in good shape can bring $75 (single) to $250 (double) as shooters.
Serial numbers on long guns were not required in the US until 1968, so many manufacturers did not assign them to shotguns and small-caliber rifles.
Serial numbers were not required on long arms before Jan 1, 1969. Most manufacturers did not assign serial numbers to small caliber rifles or utility shotguns.
Your stevens model 9478 shotgun was made during the years 1978-1985.while serial numbers were on the shotguns I do not believe that serial number records were kept as to the year of production.
Yes, they were made.
May not have one- US law did not require a SN on rifles and shotguns until 1968.
The serial number range for the Stevens model 520-30 military shotguns is from 30,000-70,000.As to the year of manufacture you will probably have to contact Savage/Stevens directly.
The Stevens model 9478 was made from 1978-1985.for a exact year of production,you will need to contact Savage Arms Company who made the Stevens line of shotguns.
the value of a 1948 Stevens double barrel shotgun 16 gauge. Hammerless.
Browning never used the letter B prefix for any of there shotguns serial numbers.
I can say that Stevens began production of the model 94 single shot shotguns in the year 1929.and finished in the year 1945.
The original Savage?Stevens model 311 shotguns were made from 1926-1945.The more recent made Stevens model 311 shotguns were discontinued in the year 1989.
That is not a model number, but is likely the serial number. Unless you have a Model 620 US marked Trench Gun, Stevens pump shotguns have little collectors value.
model 77 does not have a serial number,they were made before serial numbers were required
J. Stevens Arms Company
If this is an old side by side it would be a Baker model made in 1886. Serial numbers of Ithaca shotguns for that year were 2448 - 4101.
It MAY not have one. Serial numbers are placed on the receiver (frame) of all firearms- legally the receiver IS the firearm- everything else is simply "parts". However, prior to the 1968 Gun Control Act, no law required serial numbers on rifles and shotguns- and most low- middle cost guns HAD no serial number. While it is highly illegal to REMOVE a serial number, if a gun never had one, it is perfectly legal.
Riverside Arms is a brand name used by the J Stevens Arms Co. on many good quality shotguns. The value depends on model, gauge, and condition. There is little collector interest in single barrel shotguns. Information about J Stevens Arms apply to Riverside Arms Co.
1926 to 1945.
Various versions of the 94 were made from 1926 to 1945. Stevens serial numbers were repeated, so exact dating is impossible.
The stevens model 9478 shotgun was made between 1978-1985.
Shotguns are described by GAUGE not caliber. Most are marked on the barrel as to the gauge and correct ammuntion for use.
While this is the normal way of doing this,Stevens did not keep accurate records of serial numbers per year of production.I can say that the model 9478 was made between 1978-1985.
You have one of only 2,000 model 335 savage shotguns made.These shotguns were made from 1926-1935.
Typically they are stamped on the receiver of the auto and pump action shotguns either on the bottom or the side. Low and moderate priced bolt action shotguns produced in the 1940's and 50's may not have had serial numbers. Later bolt action guns had the serial number stamped on the receiver, usually the side. Serial numbers were not mandated until 1968. You may not have one.
Does not have a serial number, nor does it need one. Manufactured 1949-1954. Serial numbers were not required by law on rifles and shotguns until 1968. Perfectly legal to own.
