    Hi, I was looking through some of my grandpas old guns and came across a Riverside arms Co. SxS 12 gauge shotgun. It is hammerless and has a patent date of Apr. 20 1915 on side. The serial number is 10266. I did a little research and found people saying it is a model 315 and that riverside arms was owned by Stevens. I'm interested if anyone has any information about this shotgun like an approximate manufacture date. I don't think it's worth much but it looks like it would be a blast to shoot.

    Take a look at the information here - there's a pretty complete history of the J. Stevens Co. (which is who made it):


    They aren't worth a great deal and I'm sure it would be fun to shoot. I suspect it would use 2 3/4" shells but you should double check that. It is highly unlikely that it uses 3" shells.
