Although the company dates back to 1864, the name "J Stevens Arms Co" was not used until after the company was bought by Savage Arms in 1920. In the mid 1940s, the name was shortened to "Stevens".

Savage Arms didn't move to Westfield until 1961. So being that Savage owned Stevens I'm guessing it's around that time. Not sure what year the 58 was introduced and discontinued, but I'm guessing a bulk of them were made in Chicopee Falls, or Utica, NY.


Stevens was founded in 1864 in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts. Savage in Utica, New York, in 1894. Savage purchased the Stevens plant and name in 1920 and continued to make guns with the Stevens name in the Chicopee Falls facility until the late 1940's. The Stevens line was discontinued in 1991, but revived in 1998 or 1999 on a few "commemorative" models.

Springfield Arms shotguns were manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms from 1920 to 1948.


You posted this under the Iver Johnson topic and that company made a lot of revolvers in Fitchburg, which isn't far from Chicopee Falls. The only arms maker I find in Chicopee is Stevens, but I have no records of a Stevens revolver. Are you sure it is not a tip-up pistol?


patented Dec. 11. 1900 probably a Stevens modelAnswerThe date mentioned in the first response is indeed a J. Stevens patent. Shotgun Markings says that Massachusetts Arms single shotguns by Stevens were made "1920 and later". If that date does not belong with the gun in the original question, the REAL Massachusetts Arms Company made a few shotguns in Chicopee Falls between 1860 and 1893. These would have an unusual tip-up action and look a bit odd when compared to a modern single shot top-break.


Mass. Arms of Chicopee Falls was a large gunmaker that later became Stevens. Does that match up to your gun? No reference I have lists Chicopee Arms. S0- what did you want to know?

The value of a J Stevens Co Chicopee Falls Mass U.S. Patten September 6, 1864 depends on its condition. This gun in excellent condition is valued between 275.00 and 325.00 as of 2014.



Savage Arms bought Stevens in 1920, and from 1920 through 1946 guns were made under both names at the Savage plant in Utica NY and at the Stevens plant in Chicopee Falls MA. In 1946, all operations were merged into the Chicopee Falls location, and then all operations were subsequently moved to Westfield MA in 1959. sales@countrygunsmith.net

J. Stevens at Chicopee Falls Mass. U.S.A. Pat. Apr. 1794



Most Stevens shotguns have a model number on the right side of the receiver (5000, 5100, 3xx, 2xx). If the company name is marked "J. Stevens Arms Co", it was made after 1920 when Stevens became a division of Savage. Sometime in the 1940's the "J" was dropped. Riverside shotguns were made by Stevens. I'm not sure when they started and stopped using this name, but a Riverside hammergun should be the Model 215 which was produced from 1913-1932. The Model 215 hammergun was sold as the Springfield-Stevens from 1930-1932. On the left side of the receiver is: Springfield manufactured by J.S. Stevens Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA Pat. Feb. 10-1914

savage arms company was located in chicopee falls mass. from 1946-1960.



Massachusetts Arms Company: Trade name used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company on firearms for Blish, Mizet and Silliman Hardware Company of Atchinson, KS. The name is also attributed to Crescent Firearms, but a single shot with a Chicopee Falls address is almost certainly a Stevens.


this is a misprint. It should be a model 75 rather than a 57 as it appears in the question.




The Stevens Model 58 Salvage Shotgun with no serial number was probably manufactured in the early 1940's in Chicopee Falls MASS. It's value could range from $400.00 to $ 1500.00 depending on condition. If it has the Chicopee Falls Mass manufacturer on the barrel a good starting point is $ 500.00 and up depending on condition.
