    I was at the club last week when a friend of mine came in the door and told me about a business owner in town who has a couple of minty guns for sale. He said that one was a Remington semi auto rifle and the other was a Savage SxS and both were in unbelievable condition. In 2 seconds flat, my friend Don and I were on our way over there to see what he had. Don grabbed the Remington (WITH Leupold scope) and I got the Savage Stevens 311E 16ga SxS. When I got it home and cleaned it up, I was simply amazed at the condition. I highly doubt that this gun has even run a box of ammo through it. He wanted $300 for it, so I figured it would be a no-brainer.

    Does anyone have an information about pro-dates and such about this gun??

    Tron,
    What you have is a variation of Savage/Stevens basic double barrel hammerless shotgun. These are rather plentiful as Stevens produced quite a few 311s in many variations. Stevens' "usually" have a date code behind the hinge pin or ahead of the triggerguard on the bottom of the frame that is represented by a small circle containing a number and letter - A=1949 up to V=1968. The Proof Tested is not an accepted proof as American firearms proof testing is voluntary and therefore not sanctioned or controlled by a governing body. The individual companies set their own criteria for testing so there most likely is little uniformity from mfgr to mfgr.
    This is what I have so far.

    311s made up til 1989, latest book shows 275 for 12 ga in your condition with a 20% bump for 16 ga.
    I picked up a 5100 Stevens in 20 ga a couple years ago in Exc shape--forerunner to yours and they were made with gauge specific frame sizes.

    Nice catch.
