J. Stevens Single-Shot .410

Can anyone provide any information concerning a junior-sized single-shot .410 shotgun produced by J. Stevens Arms Company?

It is early enought that it has no serial number. One side of the receiver is labeled:
J. Stevens Arms Company
Chicopee Falls, Mass U.S.A.
------Made in U.S.A.------
The other side is stamped:
STEVENS
The fully
guaranteed
single gun
Near the breech, the barrel is stamped: "Barrel and lug forged in one piece"

The buttstock and forepiece appear to be walnut.

I will attach photos as soon as I can.

Thanks!

It sounds like this may be the Stevens #1 model. They made several sngl bbl shotguns over the years, some with model no's on them and some not. don't have anything in the library on this one.
