Additionally, he thought Simmons was…

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.

How do you determine the age of a Winchester 101 shotgun in 12 gauge with 30' barrels and made in japan written on barrels?
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking here.

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…

What is the brand and model for a double barrel rabbit ear shotgun with the marking S H Co. This is a very old gun with wire barrels?
Simmons Hardware Company used the "SH Co" logo . Crescent Fire Arms used various names for "house brand" shotguns and this may be one of them. They used other companies to make shotguns for them.

Co would be a house brand name made by Hartford under a Crescent contract. Hartford Arms & Equipment made…

Damascus is a method of making laminated barrels. A series of wires is braided and hammer-welded to create a distinctive pattern of loops and swirls. Well-made Damascus barrels were the best available before modern steel and many well-maintained 100-year-old Damascus guns are still being used. On the other hand if the gun has not been properly cared for, hidden rust pockets may have compromised the barrels and cause a dramatic failure. If you are tempted…

I have 5 listings for Utica. Does it say "Utica Firearms Co. London Fluid Steel" or "Utica Fire Arms Co. Pat. Nov. 25, '90, March 29, '97"? The first of those would be a Crescent product made between 1892 and about 1914. The second by Hopkins & Allen, 1898-1915. If it says something else, it may be from another manufacturer. Simmons Hardware sold guns made by many firms. Crescent made hammerless sidelock guns for Simmons…

I'm not aware of any shotguns ever made with two barrels twisted together. If you are refering to "Damascus Twist" barrels, you need to learn a lot more about guns before buying one. Here is some information for you...please note the part about it not being safe to fire a Damascus barrel with modern powder. Picture an onion after a fire cracker went off inside it. http://www.hallowellco.com/damascus_twist_barrels.htm
