Can anyone help pin down the approximate manufacturing date of two Stevens shotguns?
1. Stevens M311 - Double-barreled 12 ga.
2. Stevens M67-3 - 20 ga. pump

If you could provide and letters prior to the serial number I may be able to help.
On the 67: is it camo or better yet what is stamped on both guns.

No serial number on the double-barrel...it did have stamped on the underside: Model 311A.
The 20 ga pump has a brown wood stock, not camo. The only numbering I could find was: E870069.
I bought these for $75 apeiece from a nephew-in-law, who had them from his grandfather's gun collection.

According to my records, the 311 was made in 1949 and the 67 I can't tell. From the price you paid you really made an excellant purchase.

I have not had a gunsmith examine the 311, but it looks shootable to me. The stock is a little beat up and the barrel exterior has a very slightly rough feel. Inside, it's clean as a whistle.
A few more questions:
Would this gun be classified as an antique?
Would it be worth my while to have it refinished?
Any idea on it's market value (if refinished)?

If my memory serves, to have it reblued, would run around $300.00, to refinish the stock, if I was still in business, $25.00. I don't know what the cold blue would cost, andd would not be able to determine a value once refinished.
