Can anybody help me out with some info on this shotgun:

SPRINGFIELD MODEL 5000
J STEVENS ARMS COMPANY
CHICOPEE FALLS, MASS, U.S.A.

Its a 12 ga SxS with 30 inch long barrels/checkered walnut stock/red Red Head rubber recoil pad.

Am wondering approx when it was manufactured because I can't find it in any of my books? The closest I have found is the 5100.

Thanks in advance,
Rick

I found this posted in a forum at Numrich Gun Parts.

"When this model was introduced in 1931 the receivers were originally stamped "5000", this stamping was changed in 1941 to model "5100". Parts listed for the 5100 will interchange."
