I have a stevens 311a model 410 double barrel side by side in good condition I would like to know when it was made and <email> address is kenneth kirkland 20 @ YAHOO .COM
hello your stevens md 311 a should value around 350-500 in good condition with crack free stocks in todays market ,,if extremly clean possibly a little higher to the right collector,,daeing your shotgun should be easy ,,remove the barrels and look on the frame of the receiver ,,these were first made in 1949 and there should be a letter date code starting with A for 1949 and continuing thru X in alphabetical order with these exceptions ..N was 1962 then 1963 went to P,,1964 went to R and continued in order to X which was the last letter code used in 1970 so the years will be in order except for O +Q which were not used..the 410 models are one of the most sought after models of the 311 because of there popularity with young shooters..
circle F with the other letters L M and V on the left
and s on the right?
seen one sell at an auction this week for $500.
it was fair to maybe good condition.
ok the 311 a ive got has an s on one side of part that holds the double barrels also an O and a Q on the other sideso what year was this manufactured? also couldnt get the barrles to seperate from the recieververy clean great shape but just couldnt figure out how to dis assemble
