No. Hanover Arms was a trade name used by H&D Folsom Sporting Goods on inexpensive shotguns made by Crescent Firearms and a variety of Belgian makers. If you have a double barrel shotgun with Wells Fargo markings, someone has tried to make a silk purse from a sow's ear.

/QuestionI have a Wells Fargo 12 gauge made by American Gun Co of New York. It has several authentic markings on the stock. It however, has had the barrels cut off some. Has external hammers. lcjones

American Gun Co is another Folsom trade name. Because all the old western movies showed the stagecoach shotgun as a short-barreled gun, all the fakers cut the barrels. In reality, stagecoach guards would use a standard length (30 or 32 inch) shotgun or a lever action rifle.

Riverside was acquired by the Stevens company about 1920, and the Riverside name continued for about 20 years. These were utility grade shotguns. Unfortunately, there was been a brisk trade in making "Wells Fargo" shotguns- there are more out there than Wells Fargo ever owned. I would urge you to get a hands on appraisal by someone with a good knowledge of shotguns- to the best of my knowledge, Wells Fargo bought higher quality arms.
