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 Stevens model 311 was discontinued in the year 1989.You would have to contact Savage/Stevens to get the actual age of your double barrel shotgun.
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.
I too would like some information regarding a 20 gauge J. Stevens Arms Company 'Springfield' double barrel shotgun, the only other markings are 5000 on the right side plate and a circled 22 near the trigger guard.
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.
I can say that the marking stevens Arms and Tool company was marked on stevens made firearms from 1886-1915.This time period would include your double barrel shotgun.As to value that would dpend on your shotgun having steel barrel or Damascus twist steel barrel(BLACKPOWDER ONLY).The ovreall condition would also be important.
Would have to identify exactly which model Stevens rifle you have. Need ALL of the markings. And, condition is everything, so digital pictures would help. www.countrygunsmith.net
All my records indicate that stevens did not make a model 337 shotgun.If your stevens shotgun is marked U337 under the receiver,this would be a serial number,not a model number.
On the barrel in front of receiver would tell you it was made in Oct 1941.
It can be difficult, since they were not marked on the early singles. Would have to know how the barrel is constructed, type of action, receiver profile, etc. firstname.lastname@example.org
Provide a detailed description including gauge, barrel length, all markings, overall condition and finish.
Gun shop, gun show, want ad
That would be a Stevens/Savage 315 with a Montgomery Ward name.
It is a four digit number on the receiver under the right side barrel, open the gun and look deep on the receiver,
Would need to know ALL the markings on the gun to properly ID it.
The value of a J Stevens Arms 22 LR with Octagon barrel would depend on a couple different things. The most important being the condition.
I would think the bolt sliding forward in the receiver would close the aperture.
Prior t0 1958 the 98 depending on condition and barrel markings would start at 900.00 range. If barrel is marked (not for ball) on the top this model would start at about 1400.00.
Would need to know the other markings as well.
Tom, a good place to start would be e-gunparts on the web.
Complete description and pictures would help, otherwise, can't be done.
That would be a Stevens 94B sold by Sears Roebuck.
This description could fit any one of a half dozen or more boy's rifles manufactured from the mid 1890's to the 1930's. There was a "revival" of the Stevens Favorite in the 1990's. Would have to know ALL the markings and where they are located to positively identify it.
I would have to do some searching to verify this, but I don't believe Stevens ever made a shotgun using percussion caps.
Several lengths were available on Stevens double barrel shotguns. 30 inches would be the most common, but 28 or 32 would not be uncommon and 26, 34 or even 36 would not be impossible.
