This is the first time i've posted here, so i'll give a little bit of my history. I'm in the MN Nat'l Guard. I'm the happy owner of a .40SW S&W M&P, and until recently, that was my only firearm. My Father-in-Law recently passed away, and my wife and I inherited his Colt Cobra .38 Special service revolver, and this Stevens Arms Model 235 SxS Double-barrel; which as you can see, has suffered through several years of neglect. I'm working on cleaning it up, and here's several "before" pics. I've had some difficulty in determining the age of this particular firearm. According to This Source this model was only made for 20 years, between 1912, and 1932, though according to This Source the firearm was manufactured in 1957. Neither of these sources seem very reliable. We also acquired his 12ga. pump, but that piece isn't all that interesting. The double barrel on the other hand, i've found quite intriguing. If anyone could help me age this thing, i'd be much appreciated. The "Date Code" that i've found is an "I" with no corresponding numbers. Sadly, a google image search didn't bring up much in the way of good photos for the same model in good condition, so i'm not sure if the barrel, and accompanying metal portions should be steele, or blued. The over all value of the weapon seems to go for anywhere from $50 - $300, of course depending on condition. *edit* On a side note, i'm currently working on cleaning this up. Any suggestions on products/techniques would be much appreciated. I'm currently using: Hoppe's #9 solvent, "Formula 3 Gun Conditioner" (AKA CLP for the military types) from Kleen Bore. I'll be acquiring a Bore brush tomorrow, as i don't have one that'll work for the shottie. Anyway, enjoy the pics, you card carrying NRA nuts!
