savage stevens shotguns

hi, i was wondering if anyone had any idea of value on a couple of guns i acquired. they look like twins! they are both savage stevens brand, one is a model 5100 .410 sxs, the other is the 22-410. both have the tenite stocks which i believe indicates they were produced during wwII? they are both in really nice shape with good blueing and case hardened receivers. they function perfectly and are great shooters, especially the 22 cal. any help would be appreciated.

Savage 410 doubles and Model 24s always get a lot of interest, BUT, as the others said, need pics and more details.

Do these guns have strikers, or internal hammers?

I couldn't find out in searching for it and I don't know anything about the history of either one.

hi mike, neither of these guns have external hammers. the sxs has double triggers, the 22-410 has a selector for the top barrel (22 cal) or the bottom barrel (410). thanks, damont

Hey, Damont. Yeah, I knew they didn't have External hammers, I was asking about INternal hammers or strikers. No matter.

I did some research on these a week ago but there's a lot of confusion out there about them and the records were lost to water damage in a fire long ago. One person said just when you think you have the numbers figured out that are stamped on them, you find out you don't.

The real expert on these is said to be the former Stevens historian John Callahan in Mass. , who is retired I think. He charged $20 per gun for info. (I have his address if you want it.)

From what I could find out it sounds like the 5100 .410 started in 1940 as Stevens Model 530M and the Savage Fox Model B, then in 1947 was the Springfield Model 311, in 1948 the Stevens Model 311. All had 5100 stamped on them and had the Tenite stock. All are considered to be the same gun. The 5100 denotes "basic action" type and first appeared in 1937 on another gun. Tenite stock and fore-end began in the 1930's and ended in 1950.

Info on the 530M said the .410 5100, has a bbl len. of 26", both sides are full choke, chambered for 3" and weighs 5.75 lbs. Im quessing that's the same for your 5100?

Yours might have a 5100 stamped on it like this:

This one sold at auction on 03/02/2013, it has an updated stock.

hi mike, thanks for the reply. somewhere i had read or heard that these guns had wooden stocks until ww2 when the manufacturer started using the wood to make the stocks of the thompson 45 machine guns. don't know where that came from but i thought that was where the tenite stocks originated. mine has the 5100 stamp just like the one pictured. i don't believe either gun has a serial number, assuming they were manufactured before it was required. anyhow thanks for the info, i'm still trying to figure out how to post pics on here. guess i'm still just a rookie with this stuff. damont

hi terry, sorry i missed your question. i'm not really sure about which version either of these guns are. it's really hard to find definite info because so many different designations were used for basically the same guns. they both have the bird dog engraved on the left side of the receiver. the 22-410 says model 22-410 on the top of the barrel near the receiver, the sxs 410 has 5100 stamped on the right side of the receiver. any info you may have would be great. thanks, damont

Damont,

Probably the easiest way to post pictures is a Photobucket account. They are free and are useful for many other things as well. There are also other hosting sites but I have no experience with them. Others might know more.

I resisted getting a Photobucket account for a long time but now I can't imagine not having it and I even pay for an upgraded account.

I used the free version and was happy for a few years. The upgrade gets rid of the advertising, allows more file types, allows bigger picture and video files, and allows more capacity and bandwidth. I hit the limits on storage when they reduced it by half for the free version so I got the Pro upgrade mainly for the unlimited storage. Once I had it the other features proved well worth the modest cost to me.

If you are happy with the free version then I would stay with that. I load larger videos and file types like Shockwave Flash so the restrictions were limiting me even before I hit the storage limits.
