There are DOZENS of different references, depending on the make and model. Some use a serial number. Some, like Remington, use a barrel letter code. Some, like Mossbergs, never HAD a serial number- so we have to go by years that THAT model was made.

But ONE website for ALL guns ? HAH! You WISH!

However, if you can post info on whatcha got, we can make a stab at it. More info= better chance of getting an answer.

Your best bet is to try to check with the manufacturer. If you could find them online and send them your serial number, that might work. But, if you could post a link to a picture or something, it would be fun for everyone here to take a shot at it.

Contact Savage Customer service at (413) 642-4260 for Historical Information. They are in Westfield, MA. Most of those did not have serial numbers until 1968.
