Description:

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 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. 14 inch length of pull. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% plus original blue finish, showing a plum patina on the bayonet lug adapter, numerous scratches concentrated on top of the bayonet lug adapter and front of the heat shield, a few patches of dark deep pitting visible on the left of the muzzle and bayonet lug adapter, some light cycling wear on the magazine tube, and sharp markings in the metal. Wood is very fine with a few light scratches and dents, a few minor chips, and defined edges. Mechanically excellent.
