    I am new to this form, I have the shotgun that is a J Stevens, it was one of my grandfathers guns. I belive it is a takedown gun, but I can't find out anything about this gun.the only markings it has say Browning patents feb 7.1905,aug 27.1907. it is a 12 gauge slide action, and the bolt locks into a square hole in the top of the sloped receiver.
    I was wondering if anyone could send me some take
    down information?
    I would appreciate it very much.
    thank you for your time

    That sure looks like the gun, but do you know how to take it down?
    I belive that mine is a take down model.
    thank you for your time.
