Re: Need advice on old Stevens shotgun
I have six Stevens hammerless single barrels illustrated in my reference book. They are: the Model 180: 12.16, 20 gauges, steel barrels 26,28, 30, 32 and 36 inches, checkered pistol grip and forearm made 1900 to 1917. Model 182, 12 gauge only, 32 inch barrel only, made 1900 to 1917, Model 185, Model 190, Model 195 (this one had an octagon breech) and the Model 375. All of these guns were made between 1910 and 1917 and all had safetys on the upper tang. Information on old Stevens guns is hard to come by but there is one source. That is:
