A guy is thinking about selling me a Stevens .410 o/u , it has a stock that is either plastic or may even pre-date plastic. If the gun is in good shape, approximately what would this gun be worth.

If it's a 240, the hammers are very small to manipulate with larger hands. My uncle has one, and it's kind of neat - except for the small hammers. The tenite stocks also tend to get a unique smell to them. Check the auction sites for a model 240 for current prices.

Nice gun to shoot. It is tightly choked. The hammers are easy to cock if you use your thumb sideways to pull them both back at once. I have shot one for years. One was just sold at my club in very nice condition 90 - 95% with tenite stock for $350.00. They also where made with a wood stock(brings premium). I considered it a very good price. At the shows a $500-$550 price tag would not be unusual.

I think all responders are thinking of a different shotgun, this one is over/under and has no hammers? The stock is tenite, I had forgotten what it was called.I looked up a picture of 240 and see that it does have hammers, I haven't seen the gun he is offering for some time and must have forgotten that it had hammers, I need to look at it again. Thanks

I was offered one about two years ago for $300. I was considering buying it and having it nicely stocked in wood but decided I didn't need another project gun. Kind of a decent .410 that felt pretty good too.

If it's a Stevens .410 over under, it has hammers.

As I recall, the hammers are tight together and are cocked as if they are one.
They can be cocked individually but have smallish spurs close together and, as mentioned previously, with large hands or thumb are rather awkward to cock individually.

I think there is some confusion going on here.

The model 240 is a Savage not Stevens and has exposed split hammers.

There is model 242 that has a single hammer.

Craxon, if your reference was to my post, I have edited it. I should have been more explicit the first time.
