View Full Version : U.S. Stevens M5100
I thought all U.S. arms are serial numberd?
What do the experts think?
Hard to tell. The markings are the right size and place for a military Stevens 311. Yes, all military guns would at least have a hand stamped serial number. The 5100 was apparently produced between 1931 and 1941, and there were some procurement 5100s. The problem here is that lacking a serial number it might or might not be for real. Stevens 5100 shotguns do not sell for a ton of money, maybe $300 in good condition. So it WOULD pay for someone (not necessarily the current seller) to have stamped it to triple the value. The price is very high for a 5100, even with US markings. It is just not popular with collectors, and is not a very high quality double.
They have to be serialed to be accounted for . No if , ands , or buts. No serial , not USGI .
