I found a basket case ( well it was in abox) Steven SXS at a garage sale this week end for $35 I figured what could I loose .
it had a really busted up original stock an a new replacement stock , Owner said only one barrel worked an it was missing some pieces, he said his son was going to fix it years ago an gave up an moved away .
Well It was missing three screws an had a stuck firing pin . I had to use philips heads under the fore end to attach the retaining plate an I found a sort of correct standard head screw for the trigger guard , I was able to free up the pin with out a total strip down of the action .
Its a Stevens 5100 made in 1941(I think if I read the date code right) it has the longest standard barrels offered an there 30 inch an choked full/full .
I have $35.11 into it an a good part of a Saturday . it goes bang now an Im going to try it out at trap tonight. the new stock is not checkered an the fore end is. The wood is a little proud of the receiver but its already stained with a oil finish the stock fits solid to the receiver so Im going to let it go as its not a expensive gun an the stock doesn't really match anyway . I will say its a all steel well machined firearm.
A few pics .
