The J. Stevens Arms Co. of Chicopee Falls, Mass, introduced their Model No. 16 "Crackshot" rifle in 1900. This was also sold with markings as The Keystone, The .22 Marvel or The .22 Spencer. Serial numbers were not required on rifles until the 1968 Gun Control Act.

On my 1950s vintage Ithaca Model 37 16 gauge it is on the right side of the end of the receiver where the magazine tube and barrel go into the receiver, and also on the barrel adjacent to the number on the receiver. The numbers should be the same on both the barrel and receiver unless the barrel is not the original barrel, at least on mine they are.

barrel, butt, receiver, under forearm.

Serial numbers were not required before 1968. If it has one, it will be on the barrel/receiver.

Slide the Top Lever to the right to open the chamber. Turn the shotgun upside down. Look at the end of the barrel between the receiver and barrel. Get a flashlight and you'll see a series of numbers stamped in the bottom of the barrel.

look on the barrel of the rifle, It should be clearly stamped near the breach(the end you load from). Serial numbers are not placed on the barrel, since the barrel is removable and is not considered the 'firearm.' The true serial number of the firearm is going to be located on the receiver. You do not indicate which model Winchester, though. You should also understand that .22 rifles and shotguns made prior to 1968 were not required to be serialized, and some Winchesters therefore did not have serial numbers.

Serial number on a Citori is under the breakdown lever on the receiver. It should also be stamped on the barrel where it locks up on the receiver.

Serial numbers were not required before 1968. Check the barrel and receiver.

The round door on the side has to do with taking the barrel off. It holds the screw in the lower right hand corner stable. If you remove that screw the barrel comes off.

between the stock and the barrel

Interesting, the receiver was made after 1930 and the barrel 1922. Doubtful if the barrel is original.

If you look on top of the luger where the barrel is affixed to the receiver you will note four numbers. that is the date it was made.

No.... If the bolt hasn't been replaced, the serial number will be on the bolt. You can also find one on the barrel under the fore grip if it isn't apparent on the barrel where it mates to the receiver, and on the receiver its self. Remember that all weapons are required to have the serial number stamped on all removable parts (major parts)

Best is take it to a gunsmith as the 94 receiver can be damaged if not done properly. The gunsmith will use a special receiver support which is wedged inside to support the receiver sides. He will then simply clamp the barrel and turn the receiver part.

look on top of gun where barrel is attached to receiver. you will se four numbers. that is the date it was made................

on the barrel or lower receiver

Barrel or receiver or both.

There is a 2 or 3 letter code on the left side of the barrel back by the receiver. Send me the letter code & I can tell you when it was made.

The 68 does not have a removable barrel.

look on top of gun, just where barrel is attached to receiver, you will see four numbers. that is the date made

The receiver is the frame of a firearm- in modern firearms, it is the part that the barrel connects to. Antique firearms, such as muzzle loading rifles, did not have a receiver- only the lock, stock, and barrel. (Yes, that is where the expression came from) On a modern firearm, if it has a serial number, it is stamped on the receiver. By US law, a receiver IS a firearm- everything else is parts.
