they were made out of steel in 1885 They were all made with steel barrels. The earliest, by Lefever & Barber Co in 1874-75 were damascus or laminated steel. Fluid steel barrels would have been introduced about 1900.

bands of iron were wrapped around a mandrel and hammered.

We cant find one for you here. Browning Arms Co never made a shotgun with damascus barrels as far as we know. Its possible that a gun was made with those barrels built on one of Brownings patents.

It could be the maker of the shotgun, the name of the store that sold it, the name of the person who made the barrels, etc..

Because of the possibility of blowing up the barrels, it is not recommended for safety reasons.

My father has a Browning barrel set that he has traced back 10 years earlier. It was made in 1953. His also has matching serial #'s on the three Simmons barrels. He tried to call Simmons thinking they kept some kind of records, but, was met with a man who told him that when the barrels are made, they can put any serial # they want to make it match. Additionally, he thought Simmons was a "big time operation" that he had heard of and respected for a long time. As it turns out, the person on the other end of the line only made barrels & didn't seem like they had any sense of history or pride in the company. In fact, he literally said, "Mr., we make barrels here, we don't keep no records." His gun still has sentimental value since he's had it for approx. 40 years and it'll be my sons someday (after I get my hands on it),

Need a detailed description to inlcude type of action, gauge, number of barrels and ALL markings.

Hartford Arms Company: Trade name used by the H. & D. Folsom Arms on shotguns made for the Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Unlikely that it was ever on a stagecoach. Laminiated steel barrels were not designed for modern ammunition, so even if it does work, don't use it.

This is a Crescent Arms shotgun and if in very good condition with most of the case color on the receiver and blue on the barrels and tight with excellent barrels it is worth about $300. H.S.B.& Co. was an importer and distributor of shotguns for Crescent and that particular gun probably has a Rooster and is made in Chicago about 1900.

A cooper is a person who makes barrels.

The ROBUST shotgun was made by Manufrance, which was France's largest private gun manufacturing company. If you look underneath the barrels, it should be marked as to year of manufacture. Value is going to have to be determined by a hands-on appraisal.

Your ithaca flues was made in 1909,so you were close.i would have a competent gunsmith look over your nice ithaca shotgun.he would be able to tell you if your shotgun can first be shot safely and second if the steel used on the shotgun barrels and reciever were made for smokeless or blackpowder shotgun shells.

Eclipse Gun Company is a name found on Belgian manufactured double barrels from around 1900-1916. The manufacturer was Henri Pieper. Please note that the Damascus barrels were meant for BLACK POWDER shotshells, and should not be fired with modern day ammo.

Not every gun is made the same way but most are silver soldered to a center rail. I have never seen barrels that are truly "welded". I think it would cause too much heat and distortion on the bore.

When the OLIN Corp. purchased Winchester in the 1960's one of their money saving ideas was to import some firearms from Japan and put the Winchester name on them. Most of the Made in Japan Winchesters are from the 1970's.

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking here. Generally a shotgun with Damascus barrels (those showing a spiral pattern on the outside, since they were made from spiralling layers of metal) will have been made for black powder only. In their time, fine Damascus barrels were considered a superior option, but caution should be exercised shooting such guns now, and definitely only black powder should be used. If in doubt, get the gun checked by a qualified gunsmith.
