That would be "1915," not "915." It replaced the 1894 Favorite. The Favorites are popular. In well-used condition they bring $100; in great condition they can get into the $300 range. Just about any gun guide (Flayderman, Blue Book, etc.) gives lots of info about these popular Stevens rifles.

Any Stevens firearm that is marked J Stevens Arms and Tool co.Was produced between the years 1886-1915.That is as close as I can get.

Only use or shoot cartridges that have the same caliber as the one marked on the barrel of your firearm.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE 3 INCH SHELLS IN A FIREARM NOT MARKED FOR THEM!!!!!!!!! Yes there are manuals for the firearm.

If your Stevens is a bolt action, it is NOT a visible loader. If it has any part (perhaps the barrel) that is marked as a visible loader, that part has been replaced.

Stevens guns were made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991.

Like all other Stevens guns, yours was made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name.

This will help you identify the approximate year. Stevens guns were made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991. They are generally valued around $150 -250

My best estimate would be Stevens.

Question is too broad to answer. In general, use ammunition that is the same as the caliber or gauge marked on the firearm. If it is marked .38 Special, use only .38 Special- NOT .38 S&W, NOT .380. NOT .38 Super.

There were a few different models of Stevens single-shot from that era, and the differences are really minor. They are generally lumped together as 'pre-Model 94'. sales@countrygunsmith.net

There should be much more to the marking than that. That is only part of a patent date. Leads me to believe the gun is in pretty sad condition if that is all that is legible. Anyway, Stevens Favorite rifles were produced in several different models with slightly different features. Sometimes just the sights make the difference. Would need a LOT more detailed information and pictures if possible. sales@countrygunsmith.net

It would be a Stevens Model 238 manufactured between 1920 and 1948. The Ranger 101.2 is a Sears Roebuck designation.

a nonlicensee may manufacture a semiautomatic rifle for his or her own personal use. As long as the firearm remains in the custody of the person who manufactured it, the firearm need not be marked with a serial number or name and location of the manufacturer. However, if the firearm is transferred to another party at some point in the future, the firearm must be marked in accordance with the provisions set forth in 27 CFR ร‚ยง 478.92 (formerly 178.92).

Yes- you use the ammunition that is marked on the firearm.

User Avatar

All my records indicate that stevens did not make a model 337 shotgun.If your stevens shotgun is marked U337 under the receiver,this would be a serial number,not a model number.

Not sure we understand your question. Various firearm patents (and there are tens of thousands of them) are on file with the US Patent Office. If you have a patent number, or a date, that can be searched using a search engine such as Google Patent. If you mean where is it marked on a firearm- it could be anywhere- or nowhere- they are not required to be marked.

These were manufactured from 1926 to 1945. If it is marked with both the Savage and Stevens names, it was probably made after 1941.

There's not much information about any particular Crescent firearm, but the company operated from 1892 to 1932 as a subsidiary of H&D Folsom Sporting Goods. The company produced millions of single and double barrel shotguns with over 100 different trade names. Crescent was purchased by the Stevens division of Savage Arms and merged with another purchased company as Crescent-Davis for a few years and then disappeared into the Stevens operation.

Stevens shotguns have always been well-made and dependable. Nothing flashy that attracts the collectors with big money, but they'll throw a load of shot just as far and just as straight. I'd hesitate to guess how many have been produced, but it must be several million. In addition to guns bearing the Stevens name, the company also produced many single shot and double barrel shotguns marked with trade names for Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Western Auto and other retailers. The company was founded in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts, in 1865 as J. Stevens and Company. The name was changed to J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company in 1886. In 1915 the production facilities were sold to New England Westinghouse and used to produce military rifles. In 1920, the name and manufacturing plant were purchased by Savage Arms and operated as a semi-independent subsidiary with the name J. Stevens Arms Company. Beginning about 1948 their guns were marked simply Stevens or both Stevens and Savage. The Stevens name was retired in 1991, but re-introduced on updated versions of the old Stevens Favorite rifles in 1999.
