Several of the early Stevens single shot rifles were available with smoothbore barrels chambered for .32, .38, and .44 shot cartridges. The 44 shot or 44 XL was a version of the 44-40 rifle cartridge loaded with birdshot. It is equivalent to a 2 inch 410 shotgun shell. WARNING A modern 410 shell may chamber in this gun (and if it will chamber, it will fire) but DON'T TRY IT if you want to keep all your body parts.

Is there a difference between a J. Stevens Arms Co. and a J. Stevens Arms Company?

no Co. is an abbreviation for company But there are differences between: * J. Stevens and Co. * J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co. * J. Stevens Arms Co. * Stevens and * Stevens - Savage


How do you tell the age of a Stevens shotgun?

You can get an approximate date from the way the company name is marked on the gun. * J. Stevens and Company = 1864 to 1886. * J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co = 1886 to 1916. * J. Stevens Arms Co = 1920 to about 1948. * Stevens (or Savage/Stevens) = about 1948 to 1991 or after 1999. * No Stevens guns were made 1917-1919 or 1992-98. Also, any double barrel shotgun with the Stevens brands made from 1949 to 1968 is marked with a number and letter in a small circle on the bottom of the frame. A thru N = 1949 thru 1962, P = 1963, R thru V = 1964 thru 1968. If you need more information, you can contact Savage Arms on the web (savagearms.com I think) for information about newer guns. The Stevens historian will research any older gun in the Stevens factory records for $15. The address is: Mr. John Callahan, 53 Old Quarry Road, Westfield, MA 01085.

Where can you find information about a rifle marked J Stevens Arms Company 1913 on the barrel and 26 Crackshot and SVG on the sides?

Blue Book of Gun Values, Standard Catalog of Firearms, etc. The Crackshot was one of the "boy's rifles" first manufactured by Stevens in the late 1800's, but the 1913 patent date means yours was made later. If you have written the entire company name as it appears on the gun, it was made sometime after 1920 when Stevens was bought by Savage Arms and before about 1948 when the Stevens line was discontinued.


Was a single shot shotgun that has patented August 12 1913 on the barrel and 376 rr marked on the wood stock and underside of the barrel made by J. Stevens Arms?

That patent date was used by J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co, but I can't find 376 listed as a Stevens or Savage model number. Could have been made for a hardware store or mail order business and marked with the model number requested by the retailer.
