Hi, I bought a Stevens single shot 20 guage shotgun in 1983. It was brand new as far as I knew, and I bought it from Gibson's Discount Center in Odessa,Tx. I locked my keys in my car a couple of years later and exchanged the shotgun for a key. I sure wished I would'nt have done that! Oh, by the way I only paid $50 for the gun. I put it on layaway and paid it off in 5 weeks. * Joshua Stevens stopped in 1886, but the company continued until 1916. Then, in 1920 Savage Arms purchased the name and manufacturing facilities and produced J. Stevens firearms until 1948. After 1948 the initial was dropped and the guns were marked "Stevens-Savage" or "Stevens Arms Co" until 1991 when the line was discontinued. In 1999 the name was re-introduced, but only on the Favorite rifle. No Stevens shotguns are currently being produced.

How do you find information on J Stevens double barrel shotguns?

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
