Manufactured on contract, the Stevens Model 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. 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 "M/S" on the underside ahead of the trigger guard. Fitted with a smooth round forearm, pistol grip stock and serrated plastic buttplate. 14 inch length of pull. Includes a correct "1917" dated Remington M1917 bayonet, olive drab green leather scabbard and olive drab green canvas sling.
Fine, retains 60% original blue finish mixed with smooth brown patina and scattered freckling on the balance, showing a plum patina on the bayonet lug, and sharp markings and edges in the metal. Wood is also fine as re-oiled with some light handling marks, a crack on the right running between the receiver and comb, a small crack on top ahead of the buttplate, and defined edges. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet and scabbard are both fine.
