Re: Stevens 1929 Model 32 Gage
Up unto the 1930's , 32 Gauge was not uncommon and shells can still be ordered, it is still used in Europe ( for what I have no ideal ) However I have never seen a Stevens chambered for it nor can I find any listing for that cambering., but then again there are a lot of things I haven't seen in my lifetime. The numbers you refer to , are I believe assembly/inspection numbers , not serial numbers. To answer you question is going to take someone with reference material on the the Stevens, such as Joe Voisek's book " J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co History" . I believe it is a forerunner of the Stevens/ Savage 106/107 or short tang 94, " I think", which was introduce in 1929, hence the Model 1929 label. Most old single barrel Stevens are not high dollar items how ever yours is in such beautiful condition ( and in 32 gauge ) I believe 350 would be low end. Again I could be wrong. Jim K. any input on this?
