New 20-gauge Shotguns From Stevens

    Just in time for hunting season Stevens is coming out with some new additions to their 320 line: 20-gauge pump shotguns. The new additions include four models in two field-grade and two security versions. The field-grade versions come in both standard and youth-size.

    As with their 12-gauge counterparts, these 20-gauge models have dual slide bars, rotary bolts, and synthetic stocks. Each shotgun holds 5 rounds, plus one. The standard-size field shotgun has a 26″ vent rib barrel while the youth-size has a 22″ vent rib barrel. Security versions both have 18 1/2″ barrels with one model having a pistol grip while the other has a ghost ring and pistol grip.

    Stevens is a subsidiary of Savage Arms, a company that was originally founded in 1894. Arthur Savage founded the company after a number of years and some rather interesting occurrences, and before longĀ Savage began manufacturing everything from high-powered rifles to .22 rimfires. InĀ 1920 they bought J. Stevens Arms and the rest is, as they say, firearms history.

    Visit the company’s website at MSRP varies from $235 to $260.
