most dont due to the fact that they were made prior to 69, the year that all long guns were required to have a serial number.
It may not have one. Older, less costly guns often did not have a serial number if they were made before 1968.
Serial numbers were not required prior to 1968.
I can say that Stevens began production of the model 94 single shot shotguns in the year 1929.and finished in the year 1945.
It may not have one. Rifles and shotguns made prior to 1968 were not required to have serial numbers.
no unfortunatly they don't. Savage bought them out in the 1920's and continued to use the name because if the contract Stevens had with sears but to my knowlege they stopped in the 1960s
It was made sometime between 1920 and 1948. If you really need to know more precisely, find the contact information for Mr John Callahan on savagearms.com. For a fee he will research old Stevens guns. (Riverside is a Stevens trade name).
The serial number range for the Stevens model 520-30 military shotguns is from 30,000-70,000.As to the year of manufacture you will probably have to contact Savage/Stevens directly.
Many of the shot guns are valued in price close to $500 each. The amount will vary depending upon the condition that it is in.
Most shot guns can handle deer slugs.
This will help you identify the approximate year. Stevens guns were made at the plant in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Guns made from 1864 to 1886 will be marked J. STEVENS & CO. From 1886 to 1916 they were marked J. STEVENS A & T CO or J. STEVENS ARMS & TOOL CO. No Stevens firearms were manufactured from 1916 until 1920 when Savage Arms purchased the facilities and name. From 1920 until 1942 (or '48) Savage marked guns J. STEVENS ARMS CO and after that simply STEVENS or STEVENS/SAVAGE. The Stevens name was discontinued in 1991. They are generally valued around $150 -250
Savage arms and j. Stevens
Stevens Model 940c was manufactured between 1961 and 1970. If your shotgun has no serial number then it was made before 1969.
A lot of older lower end rifles and shot guns didn't have serial numbers. The fed didn't require guns to have unique serial numbers until after WW2
If it was manufactured prior to 1968 it probably doesn't have one.
They don't. They are shot by PEOPLE that are using guns.
I have a J Stevens Springfield Model 15, .22 single shot, and there is no serial number. I bought it a t a gun store, and the dealer marked my receipt to indicate it had no serial number. There is also no indication that a serial number was removed.
The savage model 94 single shot shotgun was made between the years 1926-1945,with a total production of 934,000 guns made.
These are very desirable guns but condition is everything. $200 to $425.
That form of the Stevens name indicates manufacture between 1886 and 1915. Since you have a serial number, the Stevens historian may be able to give you an exact year, for a fee. savagearms.com should have his contact information.
To my knowledge you will not find a serial number on the model 107b. This is common of Stevens and several other firearms manufacturers of the time on some of their economy firearms. Winchester's model 37 single shot is another example. These guns were very affordably priced and mass produced with various "running changes" occurring through the years. As such they were only designated by model number. The majority of Stevens and Savage single shot and breakdown over-unders such as the model 22-410 seem to fall into this category. Your gun may or may not show a choke designation. If it does not it is assumed to be a modified choke.
That the actual serial number low on this model. It should be on the trigger metal guard
The age of a Springfield model 83 .22 caliber single shot rifle is between 75 and 79 years old. The guns were manufactured by Stevens Arms Company between 1935 and 1939. Depending on the condition of the gun they may be sold for anywhere from $40 up to about $75.
On older weapons such as yours, serial numbers did not exist as they were not required by the government then. I don't know exactly when it was produced. Somewhere between 1900 and 1920.
This company was owned by Sears Roebuck and produced guns from 1905 to 1915.
Most of all Stevens shot guns give the date on the top of the barrel , mine says it right where it breaks. April 12,1913.
