Hi all! I'm new here and been having trouble finding info on a shotgun I acquired at an auction in my neighborhood.
What I have is a Savage Stevens Model 77F in 12ga. It has an adjustable choke and says it can chamber 3" shells. I can't find a serial number on the receiver but it does have A2 stamped on the underside of the receiver. The blueing is very nice and the inside of the barrel is like a mirror. There are other marks on the barrel and I have taken pictures of them all. Also, the stock has been very nicely carved with a scene of flushed grouse or quail on both sides and the hand grip is also nicely carved. I don't know if the man who owned it before carved it himself or had someone else do it but is very nicely done.
I'm not all that interested in value, although that would be nice to know if I won a good auction, but I really would like to know the history of the shotgun.
I tried to contact Savage and they informed me that they were transitioning their history records to the Cody Firearms Museum in Wyoming and were not researching at this time.
Any info from the community would be appreciated greatly.

Thank you,

SN

The Savage/Stevens guns were always considered less desirable than brands like Remington, Ithaca and Winchester (OK, there may be exceptions in the Winchester history). They were a solid, decent gun for those who didn't want to part with the coin it took to buy the premium brands.

Here's some old threads that might provide some info:
