the value of a 1948 Stevens double barrel shotgun 16 gauge. Hammerless.
I have a Stevens Peerless model I'm in need of a magazine and information about this old rifle.
The information you seek is somtimes hard to find because these shotguns are listed as savage/stevens which infers that these guns were made by one company savage,which owned the stevens name along with it,s own.The model in question which is a stevens model 237 was made by savage/stevens in the years 1936-1943,with a total production of 16,000 guns made.
It's your job to provide enough information to identify the gun first. Stevens shotguns were made from about 1865 until 1991 and the assembly number (that MAY be a serial number if it recently manufactured) does not give a clue which model it is.

I can't find a cross-reference for that number, but Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. Most of the shotguns were made by Stevens/Savage.
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
The Stevens 311 is a double barrel shotgun.

Annie Oakley used a variety of rifles in her exhibitions. The Stevens she is associated with is one of the earlier tip-up variety, not sure of which model. She is also famously associated with the Model 1891 Marlin lever action, various Winchester models, and Parker shotguns. firstname.lastname@example.org
