Good morning,

Do you know the model name/number of your shotgun?

I have several weapons I need to find out about, do I post them as seperate questions?
Stevens made a number of 20 ga, double barrel shotguns. Without a model number, I won't be able to give you a value.

For your other guns, you can post them as separate questions if you'd like. I will try my best to identify them for you. Any info you can provide like model numbers, serial numbers, etc would be helpful.

I'll see if I can find any other info on the barrell tomorrow and respond.
Very good, thank you.

under left barrel when opened to load, there are marks they read:

NM A (circled) D (circled)

same mark upper barrel

Ok...finally figured this out.....

What you have is a Savage model 5100. That model number was only used from 1931 to 1941. In 1941, the Savage name changed to Stevens and the gun was renamed the model 311.
