J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. Shotgun

I recently came into possession of a J Stevens Arms & Tool Co. reciever and forend for a single shot shotgun. I have all the hardware except the barrel, and I was wondering what the likelyhood of finding a replacement barrel would be.

Or is it even worth the time and effort and money to restore it; I have absolutely no sentimental value in this, but I couldn't stand by while an old firearm was thrown out without at least trying.

I have already tried Numrich's, and was wondering if there was some other source for parts for older guns. Any help would be appreciated.

Try the people at the Small Arms Shop.

www.savageparts.com

They specialize in parts for older Savage & Stevens firearms. Hope this helps.

try these

www.gunbroker.com

www.brownells.com

www.midwayusa.com

www.Natchezss.com

or you could try eBay. I picked up a barrel and clip for an old stevens 20 ga. bolt action shotgun model 58 . on eBay for a lot less than what it would cost anywhere else.

if it is too much work for you and don't want to keep it post some pics and I might be interested in buying it from you if the price is right.

J Stevens Nitro Special

I have J. Steven Arms, 12 gage, Nitro Special with I believe is the serial number of AT 226. I would like to know the year of manufacture. It belonged to my grandfather.

tuboe - You might get an answer to your question with wider exposure in a separate thread, rather than burying your question in SUperMidget's.

SUperMidget - If you cannot find a barrel for $25 or so, you would be miles ahead, parting out what you have to , say, a gunshow parts dealer.
I once did that with a H&R action, buttstock & forend, realizing $70 in my pocket.
