The shotgun you own is a Savage/Stevens 520 shotgun. It was sold by Sears under a Browning patent. They first started making these shotguns in the 1920s. You can probably find more info by looking into the maker. To find parts, try Numbrich. Their Web site is www.e-GunParts.com. They have diagrams of the parts and you can find most parts you need there.AnswerThe shotgun is at least 75 years old, because the last year it was made was in 1930. 1915 to 1930. Then came the 620 and 621.
You can find these numbers in the manual that come with your gun. They are also present on the handle of the gun.

A patent number will only tell you the EARLIEST date on which the device was manufactured, and the patent number could still be put on many years after the patent expired (although without any legal effect). For U.S. patents, go to USPTO.gov, click patent, search, and type in the number to find the image of the particular patent you're interested in (prior to 1976).
