    A 583.22 is a late variation and later ones might have an assembly date code on the barrel - usually the left side just froward of the receiver. The assembly date code is in the form of two upper case letters.

    No earlier than early 1952 or later than about 1958. They began phasing in the model 11 in late 1957. The model 11 replaced teh model 10.

    Now I do have one of them, but it is a Stevens with a box magazine. One of my favorite shooters.

    No assembly date code means before December 1956 and it was after January 1952
