This version of the company name indicates manufacture between 1886 and 1916. The Electrosteel mark suggests sometime after 1900. Don't know about a barrel, but you can probably find a whole gun for about $75. Might find one at a local gun show, in a pawn shop, or one of the online auction sites.

If you have a single shot shotgun,then it is worth 50 dollars,if you have a double barrel shotgun then the value could be up to 400.00 dollars,depending on the overall condition and the bores are in good shape.

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.

Depending on the Firearms condition, price could go from about $100.00 to around $300.00

If no local gun shop or gunsmith can find it, you might try contacting the company.

hi i have just got my first shotgun witch is a Richard Burton & co liege 410 single barrel shotgun i to would like to now the age f this gun have any luck in get in any info on if so i would appreciate any info u could give me. thanks Jake

JC Higgins was a Sears brand for guns sold by them, made by others, including Stevens. Your shotgun could be either or both- depends on what is marked on the gun.

Made for Sears Roebuck by Stevens. There may be a model number on the right side of the receiver (most likely 5000, 5100, or 311) or a Sears product number on the barrel (101.6?) which could give an approximate date.

OK. The Stevens Model 39A was produced between 1939 - 1947. It was manufactured in 410 guage, with a 5 shot tubular magazine. The 39A is a bolt action shotgun with a 24" barrel and full choke. The barrel is blued and the shotgun has a plain walnut one piece pistol grip stock and forearm. Approximate weight of the gun is 5 1/2 pounds. This is all the information I could come up with. I hope it helps.

Could have been anytime from about 1860 to 1920. Better description may get a better answer.

Depending on who made it and when, it could be from 50 to multiple thousands of USD

Being a double barrel has no bearing on what the choke COULD be. While MOST are full/ modified. it could be any, or none.

I would be interested in your shotgun. contact me at

This was a trade name made for Belknap Hardware, and from the list of makers (Crescent, H&R, Stevens) it's unlikely to be a high quality gun, but I could be wrong. The plating and engraving were probably not factory original. If this is a double barrel, the usual quote is $150-$250, and for a single shot, $35-$75.

I don't know of any military use of a single shot shotgun unless it was used as a line throwing gun for the Navy. The shotgun might be worth $50-$75 without any military provenance. Some evidence of military ownership could double that.

You did not specify the make of your Model 300 (there are several), but in general, a 12 g shotgun CAN fire slugs from any standard barrel. You will get better accuracy from a slug barrel, but you could use any barrel OTHER than an "Extra Full", or a shotgun with a variable choke.

Collectors are starting to look at any shotguns bigger than a 10 gauge.I just saw a 8 gauge used to feed a logging camp go for 400 dollars on a site.I would say that seeing you have a single barrel instead of a double barrel shotgun,it could go for anywhere from 100-500 dollars depending on overall condition of the shotgun in question.These will be used for strickley wall hanger status,as there is no commercial 4 gauge loads available today.

Not much information about this one. Probably a dealer in Toledo, Ohio, c. 1915-1950. Would be interested in seeing this gun or good pictures of it. We could possibly ID the manufacturer.

try or a gun smith could make you one

If there is more to the name than just "J Stevens", it could have been made as early as 1864, but if that's all it says, then it was made between 1920 and 1948. Value will range from $25 for a parts-gun to maybe $75 if nearly perfect (or $100 if it is a .410)

It could be the maker of the shotgun, the name of the store that sold it, the name of the person who made the barrels, etc..
