Stevens Offers Three New Affordable Shotgun Models

Suffield, Connecticut-based Stevens has recently introduced three new shotgun products to its extensive line of affordable scatterguns: the semi-automatic 12-gauge S1200, the 12-Gauge Model 320 Waterfowl Camo Pump Shotgun, and 28-Gauge and 410-bore chamberings of its 555 over-under shotguns.

The S1200 is the company’s first semi-automatic shotgun. It features an inertia-driven self-loading action with a walnut, camouflage synthetic, or all-weather matte black synthetic stock. The 6.6-pound S1200 has a 3-inch chamber, rotating bolt and is offered with a 26- or 28-inch vent-rib barrel that accepts the Beretta Mobilchoke system. Five versions, starting at $573 and ranging up to $685, will be offered.

The Mossy Oak Shadow Grass camo 320 series 12-gauge pump shotgun offers dual slide bars, a rotary bolt, synthetic stock, vent rib barrel and a five-round capacity. It features interchangeable chokes, green fiber optic front sight and is available in both standard length-of-pull and compact versions. Two models priced at $273 MSRP will be available.

The 555 has a scaled-to-gauge lightweight aluminum receiver. The receiver employs a steel insert that reinforces the breech to maximize strength while keeping weight down.

Standard features include a Turkish walnut stock and forend, shell extractors, a tang-mounted manual safety, a chrome-lined barrel, and a single, selective, mechanical trigger. The shotgun also includes 5 interchangeable choke tubes. Part No. 22166 is the 28 gauge model with a 3-inch chamber, MSRP $692; the 22166 is the .410 Bore, also with a 3-inch chamber, MSRP $692.

  1. I’d be impressed if Stevens (or anyone else) made a 16 gauge shotgun whether it was a pump, auto, side by side, or over and under. I don’t care what you guys and gals think, about my choice of gauge, but 16 is still my favorite.

  2. Nothing wrong with the 16. Its been a favorite of mine also. I used a Winchester model 12 in 16 gauge to bag a gobbler this past spring.

  3. I haven’t looked at the new O/U’s yet, but are they built on appropriately scaled frames? A 28 ga. on a 20 ga. frame is an abomination.

    1. I certainly do agree with you 100%. I’m not a fan of the 28 to start with, but on a oversized, or even slightly oversized frame it just doesn’t look right. I can’t imagine it feeling right.
