Stevens made 41 different models of shotguns before 1930.Are you looking for a specific model of stevens shotgun?
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.
ESSEX Tradename used by Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Kentucky on shotguns made by Crescent Fire Arms Company. ESSEX Tradename used by J. Stevens Arms Company on rifles and shotguns.
Not a lot of information. It was a trade name retailed (I believe) by H&D Folsom of New York City. The guns were made by Crescent, Crescent-Davis, and/or Stevens c. 1890-1940.
Yes, they were made.
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.
