What model 12 gauge Stevens hammerless side by side used latches to hold the firing pins back instead of hammers to strike them forward?

That pretty well describes any hammerless action. -- Not Completely -- Most 'hammerless' boxlock actions do in fact have internal hammers. The later Stevens 311 guns have them. However, certain earlier submodels of the 311, the Stevens 330, 3151, 315 and so forth actually do not have hammers at all. The firing pins are very long and extend back into the action and are actually themselves held against spring tension by the sears. Pulling the trigger lowers the sear associated with that trigger and allows the firing pin to go forward under tension from its spring, firing that barrel. We have a substantial inventory of parts for these guns. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Riverside was a brand name used by the J. Stevens division of Savage Arms around 1940-1960.Riverside Arms Co was in business in the late 19th and early 20th century. This company was acquired by the Stevens divisio of Savage Arms sometime prior to WW2. I have a Riverside hammerless flatback 12 ga with a patent date of 1915, still a shootable gun.

yes it is the same definition "forward" "toward" you just put a "t" instead of a "f". ^.^

I would say " I look forward to meeting you." instead of just " Look forward to meeting you." But as far as I am concerned it is just fine and I can be a grammar snob!
