• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

It's not a ranger or a Stevens it's a Riverside arms co show me one of them being sold right now and I will believe you and I do realize they are all basically the same gun but I have seen a glenfield model 60 go for twice as much as a Marlin model 60 and there also the same and also it really doesn't matter anyway as I'm not selling it or any of the shotguns I have I am trading for something I like it doesn't matter if the saw someone trades me cost them 20 bucks or if it was given to them for free if they want the gun more than the saw then there happy and so am I so if you aren't interested in something quit filling this thread with useless rambling

They are not basically the same, they are the same. Riverside was a brand name used by the J. Stevens division of Savage Arms around 1940-1960. all i'm tellin you is your gun is in poor condition, even if it works. no where near worth what you are trying to get, but you are correct on I need to butt out. keep tryin, There is a sucker born every minute...PT Barnum.

Apparently you can't read either I said at the beginning the highest I saw was 1,000 for the same gun but I also saw some for alot less witch still doesn't matter because I also said it is worth what someone wants it for and I have also said several times I'm not selling anything everything I have is for trade not for sale and a different name fetches a different value depending on who wants it my father just sold a 400 dollar gun for 700 because he didn't want to sell it but the guy kept pushing him to sell it so he said a price he knew the guy wouldn't pay and the guy pulled it out of his pocket handed it to my father and left happy as hell so again it's worth whatever the person that wants it says it is

The Riverside Arms Co. name first appears in the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass., catalogue No. 54 issued circa 1914 on a hammerless double the No. 315 and a hammer double No. 215. These guns were based on G.S. Lewis Patents No. 1,086,378 granted Feb. 10, 1914, for the hammer gun and Patent No. 1,136,247 granted Apr. 20, 1915, for the hammerless gun. During WW-I the Stevens factories were taken over by, I believe New England Westinghouse, for wartime production. After the Great War the Chicopee Falls factories were bought by Savage Arms Corp. and the gun business there emerged as J. Stevens Arms Co. a wholly owned subsidiary of Savage Arms Corp. They continued to manufacture both Stevens and Riverside guns up to about 1930, when they changed the name of their lower priced line from Riverside Arms Co. to Springfield Arms Co. Originally offered in 12- and 16-gauges, the 20-gauge and .410-bore were added to the No. 315 by the 1925 J. Stevens Arms Co. catalogue No. 56. The hammer gun now the Springfield No. 215 was still offered in the 1931 price list, but by the 1933 price list the hammer gun was gone. In the 1933 price list, a cheaper version of the Springfield No. 315 was added to the line with an uncheckered walnut-finish stock and called the Springfield No. 311. Both the No. 315 and the No. 311 remained in the line to WW-II. By 1947, Savage consolidated their operations at Chicopee Falls, Mass. while their factory at Utica, New York went to making washing machines for the post-war housing boom. By the 1947 catalogue the Springfield No. 311 was now a cheaper version for the Fox Model B action with a Tentite stock and forearm. By the 1948 catalogue the Springfield name wasn't being used and the same gun was a Stevens No. 311.

Probably a lot more info then anybody wanted!!
