Re: Stevens Manufacture Date
A couple of things. Since the gun is a 7MM-08, I doubt it's original. More like a rebarrel. There are no published serial number-year made tables for Stevens guns that I am aware of. However there is a source you can check for the information you are seeking. You can contact:
Older Stevens Historical Research
Mr. John Callahan
53 Old Quarry Road
Be advised that there is a $15.00 research fee per gun.
If you write be sure to give them all possible information.
