Identify this stevens 16 ga

My father found this gun at a new property that he bought. It was up in the rafters of the barn in a leather case. this gun has really nice wood and checkering is excellent shape which makes me think this gun was in great shape when it was put in the barn, its a shame it ended up this way really. The case was actually stuck to the stock and had to be peeled away removing some of the finish. There is no serial number anywhere on the reciever or barrel, there is also no model number anywhere on the gun. The reciever is marked Stevens, savage arms corporation chicopee falls mass, usa, and the barrel is marked "Proof tested 16 ga 2 3/4 inch. Im really looking for the model of this gun and around what year it was made. thanks for looking.

Re: Identify this stevens 16 ga

It's a model 67. I have a 20 gauge in a lower grade. It is a really good shotgun. Mine had been abused for 23 years, and it was used when I got it.

As far as value goes, I think it's worth about $125 in 98% condition. I would say you would be lucky to get 50-75 bucks for that gun. I would use it if it works, and not rusted apart inside.

Re: Identify this stevens 16 ga

I have one in 12 ga. It is a solid gun. The blueing on mine is in tip top shape but the stock looks like it went through ww3 and back. I am gonna refurbish the stock. If the gun still works I would look into shipping it away to be reblued.

Stevens models 67's were made in the 70's long after that gun was made.

it is a model 620. it is worth up too about $300 exc. if it has any type of military markings on it it would be worth double.

Re: Identify this stevens 16 ga

Sorry, I was wrong. I had to go back, and look at it again. It is a bit different than mine where the barrel meets the reciever.

Either way, I would just clean it up and use it.

Re: Identify this stevens 16 ga

Looks like a Winchester Mod 12 at a quick glance. I know, I know - it's Stevens; I am just saying it <u>looks</u> like a Winne 12

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
