Yes, but it is quite likely to be an Iver Johnson Champion if it is a single shot. I can only narrow the date of manufacture down to "1890's to 1960's" from the name alone and serial numbers don't mean much on these older trade-name guns. You may be able to get a pretty good idea when it was purchased from family members. I have an old 20 ga. single shot marked Cresent that looks exactly like the Excel. The Standard Catalog of Firearms states that Crescent Fire Arms made the Excel for Montgomery Ward & Co. of Chicago, Ill.
No. Crescent made inxpensive shotguns under more than 100 different trade names.
Crescent manufactured shotguns from 1888 to 1940. They sold a million utility shotguns that were "branded" by hardware stores and the like. Typical value is $85 to $150.
Plymouth was a trade brand shotgun made by Crescent Fire Arms Co and later by Davis-Warner Arms Co. It was distributed/retailed by H & D Folsome. Shotgun Markings also lists a hammer double barrel by an unknown Belgian maker and indicates the retailer was Spear & Co.
The current Barrett Firearms does not make a double shotgun. Exactly how is your gun marked?
I HAVE A LIST OF GUNMAKERS ,CRESCENT DID NOT MAKE A RICHMOND.THEY DID MAKE A RICHLAND , FOR A HARDWARE STORE BYTHAT NAME. IF MY LIST IS CORRECT,
In my opinion, nothing special. Crescent make many shotguns for various companys and hardware stores in the early years
No published data known to answer your question.
Crescent, and the successor company, H&D Folsom, used over a hundred different names. However, THAT name is not one that shows up in my references. Royal Western was a high grade shotgun- and many companies used similar names to cash in on their name. Like Barker, instead of Parker.
If it is a hammerless single shot or double barrel, it was PROBABLY made by Crescent Firearms, 1892-1931.
Yes. Smithsonian was the trade brand name used by Crescent Fire Arms Co. and later Crescent-Davis. The distributor/retailer was H & D Folsom.
No. The biggest they make is 12 gauge.
Winchester did not make firearms in Belgium
1947 - 1953
crescent made shotguns for Hermitage from 1904 to 1930. nothing mentioned on muzzle loading rifles.................
Sears did not make firearms, they contracted out to other companies to mark them with the Sears name.
A few years either way of the turn of the century
I did a lot of serch on this crescent arms club shotgun which I have never heard of before. I checked many sites in the web containing shotguns from crescent firerms since the late 1800's and nowhere I found one called club.
it depends on the gun, if its a shotgun then im not sure because ive never fired a rifled shotgun barrel. but with slugs in the shotgun yes it will make it much more accurate. and any traditional gun will be much more accurate with a rifled barrel. thats why muskets sucked lol
Most likely it was made by Crescent Arms.
