    Stevens 620 riot or not?

    Bought this yesterday. Some of the markings don't look right. The P on the receiver might be covering a flaming bomb. Numbers don't match. Receiver is 22,000 range and the barrel is 9000. Receiver could be trench. Barrel is 20 inches not 18.

    The barrel doesn't match the receiver, so that's pretty much the ball game in terms of collectability. You could remove the stock to see whether its serial matches either, but probably not worth the effort at this point. The barrel P and bomb stamps look a bit squiffy, but could be right, the receiver punches are more definitely suspect, and the flaming bomb should not be missing on a real military issue arm of this type. The extra P and punch mark on the barrel top are from a nebulous source (maybe the Blanket Procurement Program?) but are correct for the WWII period. Twenty inches is the correct length for a WWII riot barrel, but that doesn't necessarily mean that this one wasn't cut down after issue. Enjoy the piece for what it is, a well made WWII era pump gun in good condition and quite suitable for home defense, but unfortunately due to the mismatch it is not worth much more than a non-military example. JMO, others' mileage may vary.

    Stock is a Fajen replacement. Agree a mismatched one isn't worth as much. Thanks for the input on markings. It sure is a strange one.
    I paid regular used shotgun price, $150.

    $150 is a good price...
