Where can you find information about a 19 inch double barrel Riverside Arms gun with a 1914 patent marked Property of Wells Fargo on a brass plate and the initial WF on the barrel and frame?
I can tell you that your shotgun was made by J. Stevens Arms sometime between 1914 and 1940, the barrel was cut off and the Wells Fargo markings were added by someone trying to make an inexpensive shotgun appear to be a rare collectable firearm. WF guns were not marked with the brass plates and so many "stagecoach guns" have been faked that there is no collector market for any that do not have solid provinence, ie., a bill of sale from the company identifying the make, model, and serial number.

Where can you obtain information about a Riverside Arms Co 30 inch double barrel shotgun patent date February 10 1914?
I don't think Stevens was using the Riverside name as early as 1903 but they probably were still using that patent date into the 1930's. If the gun has fluid steel barrels, it could still be a hunter's gun but the rabbit ears attract Cowboy Action Shooters and interior decorators. Any of these groups will pay $100 to $250 depending on condition.
== == "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.

What you have is a model 215 Riverside Double Barreled shotgun. There are only two models, the other one (315) has internal hammers. I recently obtained a model 215 and needed a new barell. I found a site that lists Riverside parts, but cannot vouch for them as I have not ordered yet. However, this is the only place I've found; It's Numrich Gun Parts Corporation. The link below will take you to the parts…
Riverside was a brand name used by the J. Stevens division of Savage Arms around 1940-1960. Riverside Arms Co was in business in the late 19th and early 20th century.

I have a friend who owns a Riverside with hammers, it also…
