    I just got a Western field model 30 (Savage/Stevens 520)
    Can any one help me figure out what year it was made?

    Thanks!:D

    Stevens 520 was discontinued in 1932. Send me a pic to be sure that is what it is.

    That is the 620 for sure. I will see about a serial number guide to check.

    Thanks for the help Deadeye!

    Does anyone here have one of these? There seems to be some broken &/or missing pieces in the trigger group.
    If I could get some pics of the inside, it would be greatly appreciated!

    I've order many parts from them.

    I was looking for a pic of the trigger group "assembled", I did a lot of searching the web today & I found some good pics. Any & all info, insight & opinions are welcome on this project.

    I'm beginning to think there is something seriously wrong with me. I have fixed up a few guns now, but it seams like I tend to put the most "time, money & effort" into guns that really aren't worth much.

    Similar, but not identical. I'll get some more pics up in a little while.

    The main differences I see are design of the receiver & trigger housing. They are designed to mount the stock in a way similar to a lever gun. Another difference is the hammer uses a torsion spring (again, similar to a lever gun). Under the the hammer spring is another torsion spring, this one has two fingers on it.

    Here are some pics.

    Sometimes its hard to pass on something that you think you can make better. As long as you have fun with it your good to go!
