The riverside double barreled shotgun only came in two models, the 215 (exposed hammers) and 315 (internal hammers). From what I have heard, the 215 should take parts for Stevens or Savage model 215s. However, you can find Riverside parts at

A serial number not preceded by a letter indicated the weapon was manufactured prior to 1949.

I'd bet (but only a small amount) there is a 3 or 4 digit number on the right side of the receiver which will be the Stevens model number.

Stevens/Savage used the Riverside name from about 1920 to 1945.

Probably at Savage customer service website (Savage bought Stevens in 1920)

Your savage model 30F was made by savage/stevens from 1970-1975.

== == "Riverside" was a brand model shotgun produced by the J. Stevens Co. (which was bought out by Savage in 1920) - These were utility grade double barrel shotguns manufactured between 1877 and 1988. If the serial number is prefixed with a letter it was manufactured after 1949. If there is no letter, it was manufactured prior to that. Thats the best I can do.
