My father in law gave me several guns. Im not planning on sell as they were a gift but cleaning them up and putting them in the safe. I have tracked down info on all of them except this one. Its a Gamble Stores Incorporated Pioneer Model 29 16 Gauge. Any and all info would be great!

Strange you should ask this question at this time. I just added the same identical gun to my collection, Although you didn't say so, the gun is a single shot breech loader and was made by the Stevens Arms & Tool Co of Chicoppe Falls,MA. It is the same as their Model 94.

The J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. never made a No. 94 single barrel. The No. 94 first appears in the J. Stevens Arms Co. January 2nd, 1930 Wholesale Price List, as a Springfield. The No. 94 remains a Springfield thru the 1947 Savage/Stevens/Fox/Springfield catalogue. The first appearance of the Stevens Model 94 is in the 1948 Savage/Stevens/Fox catalogue.

My copy of the Blue Book says that the J, Stevens Arms Company introduced the Model 94 in 1929. The company operated under several versions of the name. 1864 to 1866-J. Stevens & Co, 1866 to July 1 1916- J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co or J. Stevens A & T Co, July 1 1916 to 1942-Stevens Arms Co. I believe that the present name if it is still being used is The J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company.

Well, another case of the Blue Book being wrong. It was the J. Stevens Arms Company from WW-I to WW-II, a wholly owned subsidiary of Savage Arms Corp. "Tool" didn't appear in the name after WW-I.
