Where can you find the age and model of a double barrel side by side shot gun marked J Stevens and Co with 379 stamped in the trigger mechanism?

I can't find anything about a "379" (could it be 370 or 375?), but if the name is stamped as you have it written, the gun was made between 1864 and 1886.

The Stevens will accept whatever caliber designation is stamped on the side of the barrel.

the stock is the wooden part that you hold against your shoulder, the trigger mechanism and the barrel are attached to it.

The model number should be stamped on the barrel just above the trigger guard.

The "J.Stevens" name was shortened to "Stevens" in 1940. What you need to look for is the chamber size, which should be stamped on the barrel. It needs to be 2 & 3/4 inches to shoot modern ammo. Also Stevens usually stamped near the chamber size if the barrel was proof tested. My Stevens single is stamped "Proof Tested Steel" and it handles modern ammo well, but kicks like a mule. To be really safe, let a gunsmith look at it.

The pump is a pull-down located on the barrel, and the 12-shot loader is a cylinder integrated in the gun just past the trigger mechanism and before the barrel. I've tried dismantling it, but to no avail. the air cilinder (located on the barrel) does not seem to touch any of the springs associated with the firing/trigger mechanism. Blocked? or a missing part that fits into the air cylinder If someone can explain how the mechanism works i can see if everythings there. thank you.

Sounds like you have a Turkey gun. @0 guage and the other barrel is a rifle. They are worth up to $500 or so. Depends on the caliber of the rifle barrel.

evidently a misprint, may be worth something to a collector.

Generally by its size, length of barrel, what type of barrel it is, what sort of firing mechanism it has and how does it load and feed ammunition. It is also usually stamped directly into the metal somewhere on the frame.

To be really safe, let a gunsmith look at it. "J. Stevens" was used from 1930 to 1948. Any gun built by Savage/Stevens in that time period will have chambers 2 3/4 or longer. If it also says "& Co" or "A & T" it will be older and may not.

It's probably a pin instead of a screw, and according to e-gunparts.com, it's called the Trigger Pin.

Iver Johnson is most often associated with the HERCULES trade name. sales@countrygunsmith.net *If that statement marked on the gun actually says "barrel and lug forged in one piece" it is a Stevens. If it says "barrel and lug forged in one" (exactly the same except no "piece") it is by Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works.

Yes in 1860 Stevens made a double barrel, all steel barrel and its has external hammers.

The Riverside trade name was used by J. Stevens from 1915-mid 1940's. You MIGHT be able to get a precise date by contacting the Stevens historian. savagearms.com should have his contact information.

Maybe. Why would you want to? It may cost more than a new gunas you may have to fabricate some parts. It's best to use firearms as designed rather than reengineer them. you can easily compromise safety.
