The Blue Book says the No 530 was made from 1936 to 1942, but the 14C indicates manufacture in 1951.
I too would like some information regarding a 20 gauge J. Stevens Arms Company 'Springfield' double barrel shotgun, the only other markings are 5000 on the right side plate and a circled 22 near the trigger guard.
front trigger fires right barrel. back trigger fires left. boone
It was made by J. Stevens Arms (division of Savage Arms) sometime after 1920.
I have one. Case hardened receiver, solid rib. Interestingly, in looking a the single trigger, there is a slot next to it (underside of receiver)which contains a piece of metal which does not protrude below the receiver. It's as if it was a double trigger converted to single trigger. I have no idea. It was made before 1948. I use it to this day, got four chuckars just yesterday. It just puzzles me. The side of the receiver says Stevens and next to it "model 5000" and it has an engraving of a pointer on the receiver as well. ????
Made by Savage/Stevens. We have trigger guards.
www.diamondgunsmithing.com - This guy worked for Ithaca, supposedly the best. www.stephenolin.com, this guy did the engraving for them. good luck
it was a child's first gun. one in excellent condition is probably woth $100.00
Riverside Arms was a tradename used by Stevens and later by Savage. Would help to know what other markings are on the gun.
Is it a bolt, pump or semi-auto? What are the markings on it? Serial number? Are you saying the only engraving is around the trigger? None on the receiver? Without knowing these answers, you might be in a 200-2000 price range.
A 335 may have the model number on the bottom metal just ahead of the trigger guard, at least mine does. The lettering is very small, shallow, and hard to read. Mine says "MODEL 335".
I don't know what the numbers on the trigger are unless they are a part number, but you can add about 25% to the asking price for a single selective trigger.
The Stevens 84C (Stevens was owned by Savage Arms, and the 84C is the same as the Savage 4C) was made with two different trigger guards during its production life. One was a simple curved steel trigger guard that was mounted to the surface of the stock. The other was a larger cast aluminum alloy trigger guard that fit into an "inlet" (cutout area) on the stock. Both types of trigger guards are still available (in Jan 2012) from Numrich (aka Gun Parts Corp)
I am not sure about the 410 but a 12ga. is anywhere from $400 to $200 depending on the condition. I have just researched this and found that it is a model 330 made between 1926-1935. Hope this helps.
Model 16 Crackshot (thumb lever) is average condition is usually between $125 and $200. Model 26 (under-trigger lever) is worth less, usually $75 to $175. Condition determines value.
The front trigger opened the breach.
15,000 - 20,000 U.S DOLLARS
This is a stevens model 39A. The stevens 59A, B and C all had the takedown screw in front of the trigger guard.

This is one of several Stevens' boy's rifles dating from the late 19th and early 20th century, made in Chicopee Falls, Mass. They sold for less than ten dollars each, some for less than five. Remember, that was a week's wages for many! This model has an external hammer and an under lever/trigger guard, which when pulled down, allows the rifle to hinge in the middle, similar to a double barrelled shotgun. Upon opening, the extractor catches the rim of the case and frees it from the chamber so that it can be removed. The open chamber is now ready to reload. Closing the action brings the hammmer to half-cock. The hammer must be manually cocked to fire. These little rifles were made in .22, .25, and .32 rimfire. There were also .410 and .44 shot models on the same type action, though they were called by another name. Dating can be done somewhat by the exact use of the name. If I remember, I think "J. Stevens A & T" was used before and almost up to 1900. "J. Stevens Arms and Tool" was used after the turn of the century. "Stevens Arms" was used after about 1910 until Savage bought them out in 1920. After that Stevens was still used as a brand, but there was also a Savage logo nearby.
It is one type of gun.It has 2 step squared off reciver with " J stevens arm copany" stamped on the left side and the safety located inside the trigger guard.
