    Hi RRD......welcome to TFF.

    No way to tell you how old your gun is.....all we can tell you is that it was made by Stevens/Savage and was made prior to 1968.

    "Springfield" was a tradename used by Stevens/Savage on their lower end "utility grade" guns, and prior to 1968, serial #s weren't required on firearms, so many manufacturers didn't serialize their less expensive firearms.

    Is there a model number on your rifle?

    Savage and Stevens made dozens of different models of single shot bolt action rifles under their own names and the Springfield tradename (and sometimes they made the same model under all three names).
