I have a single shot 12 gauge that my grandfather once used.
I was wondering if anyone might now the approximate year it was produced based on the following information that is on it:

SPRINGFIELD
J. STEVENS ARMS COMPANY
CHICOPEE FALLS, MASS U.S.A

304 R

PROOF TESTED 12 GAUGE
21 SELECTED FORGED STEEL (the '21' has a circle around it)

R
304
J

I would like to refinish it as a present for my father (it seems to be in working order other than missing the front wood section).

Closest I can get you is the J. STEVENS ARMS COMPANY was used after 1920 after Savage bought them out, it was discontinued about 1940... Sorry.
