the value of a 1948 Stevens double barrel shotgun 16 gauge. Hammerless.
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 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.
The Standard Catalog of Firearms has this to say about Stevens SxS shotguns: The firm of J. Stevens produced a number of utility-grade, side-x-side double-barrel shotguns between 1877 and 1988. Not going to copy the whole text. You can read it when you look up your particular model. Stevens guns were always good servicable firearms but nothing fancy. Most are still useable, although any used firearm should be checked by an experienced gunsmith before firing. The earlier models will probably have short chambers and perhaps laminated barrels, and of course, are more likely to be worn.
