    from looking at the reciever it looks like a new england arms, a very old one. im not sure what it is worth if it is in fact a n.e.f the new ones go anywhere from 100$ to 250$ but yours looks older so it could be worth more or less because of age. also the condition, i hope i was at least a tiny bit helpful.

    it really does to me look like a new england. you should take it to a gun shop to have it appraised and checked out

    Similar to the H&R singles, but not enuff detail in the pix (ran out of pixels enlarging them). If you can post better pics, and any markings on the gun (including marks UNDER the wood of the forearm) we would have a better chance of getting you a realistic answer. There were many of these made in Spain and Italy over the years.

    410shooter, that isn't quite the same, the trigger is different and the barrel on mine has a groove in it.

    C3shooter, srry that's the best the camera can do

    I can say one thing it is not an H&R or an NEF they have three pins in the rear of the reciever. This one has TWO.

    The older H&R's had two pins as opposed to 3 or 4 on the newer ones. i am not good enough on these to know when they made the transition.

    There was a somewhat incestous relationship with the 3 S's- Savage/ Stevens/ Springfield. You might check on the Stevens Model 107. Made from 1937-1953. Single shot, profile is similar to yours. Changed slightly as the makers swapped spit, and gun made under one name was picked up under another name, etc. Inexpensive shotguns even when new. Not bad, just not high dollar guns.

    Why, Jake- the price is right there in the ad- $11.50. Of course, that IS for a new one......... :rolleyes:

    Seriously, the Gun Traders Guide lists the Model 107 at $85 for a Very Good condition specimen. These were the guns of the working stiff- the farmer, mechanic, store keeper, and valued as shooters, not as collectables.

    Lol if it was really only $11 I'd own like 5 an get special harnesses made so I could use all five at once, reloading would suck though
