Here's a Savage Model 24 discussion board http://disc.server.com/indices/180203.html

Hi I have been given a J.Stevens 4-10 single barrel, bolt action rifle- model 58B. It has a small magazine (5 shells?). Its in a bit of a state and needs some spare parts (bolt for a start). I wonder if anyone has any info on this gun, if spares are available and if its worth renovation?....paul Rphellens@aol.com

The Stevens Model 58 originally was introduced in 1934 and, with minor modifications, such as fixed or detachable magazine, remained in Stevens line as the 258 until about 1966. If your gun has a box magazine, the probable capacity is just three shots including the one in the chamber, as that is the maximum number of rounds allowed for hunting migratory birds and ducks under US law. (Many states do not restrict the number of rounds a hunter may use for non-migratory upland game birds.) These guns are not very collectible and have only modest value as shooters. Gun Parts Corporation (West Hurley, NY 12491, www.gunpartscorp.com) catalogs many parts for the Stevens Model 58B. Their huge catalog costs $12.95 in the US and is worth every penny as it provides an authoritative education on many discontinued guns. Marshall Williams

I own a STEVENS .22/.410 O/U and I wonder if there is any good soul out there that could give me some idea as to the value of it.The reason for this is that I am moving to U.K. next year and if it is of significant value there I will endeavour to take it with me and dispose of it there.
The .410 is not popular out here (S.Africa) because of the exorbitant price of ammo.
Some details :- STEVENS SAVAGE ARMS CORP.
CHICOPEE FALLS. MASS. USA
MODEL 22-410 PATENT 2259397 PROOF TESTED .410 BORE 3"BORE. .22 LONG RIFLE.

I also have a C.G.BONEHILL (MAKER BIRMINGHAM) D/B 12 BORE with " twist steel" barrels.This gun is very well used and has suffered somewhat over the years.He must have been quite a go getter to have started his own factory at the age of 20. Thanks for a very good site-your web address is being sent to all my friends, regards Nick.

I have a Stevens 9410 over and under with both barrels being 410 (not 22/410).  I've had it since approximately 1952.
The original stock and forearm were made of plastic but they were accidently broken and were replaced with a wooden stock and forearm. Could anyone point me to someone who could help me put a value on it?  I am in SW Arizona.  Is there someone maybe in this area that could help me?  Thanks for any and all help/info  Harold Bridwell bnmamerica@yahoo.com

thanks john dickey salem ohio. dickejn@sky-access.com

I'm looking for information on a single-shot .410 Stevens Arms Company shotgun. Text on top of the barrel reads "Patented August 12, 1913" and "410 Bore or 12 M-M". No model number that I can find, just Stevens Arms Co. trademark/patent info on one side and their address on the other. Any information on it's history and value would be appreciated. Thanks! solja@gci.net

Since this post, I've found out a couple things, but none of them shed too much light onto this gun.
I did find what appears at least to be a model number - 512 CO - stamped on various parts of the gun. Now, the problem in that lies in the fact that there was no model 512, so it doesn't help too much.
Someone also mentioned that prior to being bought by Savage in 1920, Stevens guns were stamped with "J. Stevens Arms & Tools Company". After they were bought, the name stamped on the guns was "J. Stevens Arms Company", which was discontinued in the late 1940's. My gun has the latter stamping, so I guess that places it's manufacture between 1920 and the late 40's - nice to know, but still... Would like to find out why a model 512 CO isn't listed anywhere.

I have a single shot 410 3in stevens (by savage) model 950 full size rifle. I would appreciate any info anyone could provide about this specific model (950); such as year made. Thanks,

I am trying to get an idea of what a Stevens 22/410 over/under, Stevens savage arms corp. is worth. Any help appreciated. Sincerely, S.Kahn

I just bought one in real nice shape for under $250, and have seen a number of the Savage model 24s in that price range. My brother in law who has been a BIG shotgun collector for decades has told me that this is one a good gun to buy now and hold on to for a a while as they are just starting to become collectibles, more so than the other combinations like the 30/30 over 12 guage. This is a great little gun.

I am trying to find savage co. four ten barrel inserts to convert 28 ga. to .410 . these inserts were made by savage some years ago. they were named the FOUR-TENNER.

I am interested in purchasing a Stevens Model 311 H .410 gage side by side shotgun ,and I was wondering if anyone could give me some details on the gun.
Does anyone know the approximate age of this gun. Also what would be the details on a 311 A?
I looking for the approximate years the H and A were made and if Savage Arms or Stevens produced the gun. Is the gun a collector or not? Please let me know if you have any details.
Sincerely, JohnB ABANDJB2001@cs.com
