Manufactured on contract, the Stevens 620 was a refinement of the Model 520. A solid frame hammerless shotgun, the 620 was capable of being taken down for transport as well as having slam fire capability, making it both easy to move about as well as a vicious source of firepower. Adopted for the Army and Marine Corps for World War II, the 620 remained in service for Korea and Vietnam. A single brass bead sight is installed on the bayonet lug, with a six-hole heat shield, cylinder choke, the three line Chicopee Falls address on the right side of the barrel ahead of the "P/flaming bomb" stamps and the gauge and 2 3/4 inch chamber markings on the left. A matching serial number is present on the left side of the mounting iron. The "P" and bomb are repeated on the left side of the receiver, with "MODEL 620" and "U.S." further to the back, and the serial number and "U/S" on the underside ahead of the trigger guard. Fitted with a smooth round forearm, pistol grip stock and serrated plastic buttplate. 13 7/8 inch length of pull.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% of the original blue finish, showing bright cycling and high edge wear, streaks of brown patina on the magazine tube, a proper plum tone to the bayonet lug, and mild handling marks overall. The stock is very fine, with scattered dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
