No markings were legally required until 1968 (serial numbers). Stevens didn't always mark their guns with a model number, but I've never seen one of their guns without the company name on the barrel. It's possible that the barrel has been replaced or it may have been cleaned a bit too harshly (is the finish completely gone?) or lost when it was polished for a re-blue (does there appear to be more finish than you would expect?).

i have a j Stevens a&t co 325 SxS and it has no marking on the barrels however it is marked on the action on the gun and the serial numbers are on almost every pice including the barrel asembly so i know in at least that case the barrels are not marked with a company name or anything besideds a serial number on the bottom of the barrels

The barrels are threaded into the receiver and not meant to be replaced by the average hunter. You would need to fabricate a barrel vise and receiver wrench to separate the two pieces. Also the barrels come in two different thread pitches 1' and 1.05" so be sure of what you have before purchasing. Unless it's broken, leave it alone.

Either the barrel or receiver would have to be drilled and tapped or some form of barrel clamp would be required to hold the scope. At this point, given that the rifle is over 75 years old and no longer manufactured (read: parts are not available off the shelf and manufacture of same is expensive and difficult), your best choice would be to not do it.
