I am trying to find out what year a 16 gauge double barrel was produced. It is marked Sears and Roebuck Eastern Arms 101.15 on one side and 5100 on the other. Any idea of age and worth? It was my first shotgun given to me by my grandfateher over 30 years ago. Thanks..

It is most likely a Savage/Stevens Model 5100, marked for Sears.

If it was made between 1949-70, the action should have a "Savage Date Code" circled letter, "A" - "Z", stamped into the metal, starting in 1949 with "A".

According to my copy of the Hoosier Gun Works cross reference list, a Sear 101.15 (a catalog number) is the same as a Stevens Model 311.

FWIW, the Stevens 311 and the Stevens 5100 are identical, except for markings & finish.

Thanks Cisco. Numrich or Gun Parts cross reference list did not have the 101.15 listed at all. Hoosier Gun Works did.
