Not hijacking your thread but I came here to post the same question. Mine is a 16 gauge with tennite stock, 5100 stamped on the right side, Stevens Model 311 on the left. Under the left chamber is DW and what might be an 8 in a cirlce. On the bottom is a triangle with 3 hash marks, one on each side of the triangle.

All of the OLD Stevens dates of manufacture were destroyed years ago. Any REAL dating by someone will be a guess unless they were present when the gun was purchased. If the gun was made after 1949 it will have a date code. Here are the codes:

Mine was made in 1952 according to your post. When I took the forearm off I found another stamp, DW, a G with a circle around it and an 8 after that.
