The title pretty much sums it up. All I know is it was my grandfather's shotgun. It is a single shot with a snap on forestock. I will get some pictures up by this weekend. It needs a firing pin, so that is why I need to know the model number.Thank you in advance for your help {hs#

Probably a 94 or a 940. Most of those old single shots have interchangeable parts. Try Numrichs for parts.

A photo will confirm the model number.

Thank you. I just need to find my camera and I will get some pictures up. are parts for the different series of model 94's interchangable? Where on the gun would I find the model number (if it isn't worn off like half the other markings :? )

Also, one last question... my grandfather had the forestock wraped with wire to keep it from coming off when fired. I'm not sure if I should also replace the foreend spring, the foreend spring spring, or both?

If the name on the gun is J. Stevens Arms Co. it was made between WW-I and WW-II. If the name is J.Stevens Arms & Tool Co. it is pre WW-I. The No. 94 was introduced about 1930 as a Springfield. The No. 94 wasn't a Stevens until after WW-II. During the J. Stevens Arms Co. years there were a number of J. Stevens single barrels. The No. 181 and 183 were hammerless. The hammer singles were the No. 85 and 89 were heavy 12-gauge guns known as the "Dreadnaught", the No. 85 plain extractor, and the No. 89 with automatic ejector; The No. 105 plain extractor and No. 107 automatic ejector were made in 12-, 16-, 20-, 28-gauges and .410-bore; the No. 106 plain extractor and the No. 108 automatic ejector was called the "Featherweight" and was offered in .44, .410, or 12mm and 14mm or 32-gauge; The No. 115 was like the No. 107 but with a checkered stock and forearm; and finally the No. 125 was the "Ladies Model" like the No. 115 but with a 13 1/4 inch length-of-pull and offered in 16-, 20-, 28-gauges and .410-bore. By 1925 the hammerless singles had been dropped. In 1927 they added a solid rib version of the No. 115 called the No. 116.

besides confirming the model number, can anyone tell me how the firing pin is replaced in this gun?

Punch out the pin above the second screw from the left (bottom photo).

I really appreciate everyone's help. My photo of the top of the barrel didn't come out, and I forgot to mention that it is marked High Pressure 1 Piece Barrel.

After comparing it to other pictures and everyone's advice I know it is a 94. I just need to find out which model 94 so I can get the correct firing pin. Any help is still greatly appreciated to narrow it down :)

Your gun looks like a No. 105 or No. 107 to my eye. In all of my Stevens/Springfield paper the No. 94 is shown with a completely flat-sided receiver, not profiled back toward the grip like the No. 105 or No. 107, and your gun. In all likelihood all these various Stevens/Springfield single barrels had pretty much the same action, the real differences being the quality of the wood and the finishing details.

From the J. Stevens Arms Co. 1919 catalogue --

Thank you researcher! :D that 105 looks just like it. I will probably take a ride out to Numrich corp tomorrow and get that firing pin.

To shoot or not to shoot? That is now the question...

I know its an old thread, but I stumbled upon a few of these pictures and saw a part im looking for. On the front grip there is a "u" shaped part on a spring that keeps the front grip on the shotgun. anyone have any idea where i can find that part?

Just picked up a 107 model and the grip wont stay on because that part is broken. even if someone can tell me what its called would be a big help.

thank you!!

Maybe you can pick it out of this schematic for the 107:
