It's in good shape besides one small nick on the stock.
New 1915 model?/ HAHA..... Just kidding!!!!You might want to post some pics, I recall the J. Stevens 1915 Models being rifles, .22LR .25 .32 Long. The J. Stevens Model 311 Doubles in 12 Ga are pretty collectable, depending on the condition, they auction for between $300 - $600+. Very nice shotguns in their day. I had a single when I was a kid, my first shotgun.
Thanks wreckers! I'm in a small town, and no one. Will give an appraisal so I figured I'd ask y'all, since your the smartest gun people I know!SeventiesWreckers said:You'll probably want to find a LGS that does appraisals, there is a pretty detailed grading system for collectable weapons. In the middle picture you posted, where the stock meets the action, it looks like a portion of the stock has cracked off, it should go all the way up flush, and you shouldn't be able to see the internals. It isn't a disaster or anything, lots of Stevens 311's cracked & split their stocks over time, and had to be repaired or replaced. A good gunsmith can section in a piece to fill split out portions. Here's a pic of the way it should look. Nice shotgun, well worth owning. I don't believe there are any American manufactures currently making doubles, probably why the old ones command a hefty price.
