Meriden was owned by Sears, and sold to New England Westinghouse in 1916. Stevens was acquired by New England Westinghouse also in 1916 and was then sold to Savage in 1920. The Meriden factory continued to make guns until 1918 for New England Westinghouse. Stevens is still in business as subsidary of Savage. I would say your gun is a Meriden gun, but the design was kept or slightly changed after the merger of Stevens and Meriden. One of the differences I see in the pictures are the location of the pins in the receiver of these two guns.
