Probably not, but the company did own a lot of firearms, so it is remotely possible. American Gun Co shotguns were made by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and by various Belgian manufacturers and sold through H&D Folsom Sporting Goods of New York. A lot of old utility shotguns have been stamped with a fake Wells Fargo logo and sold at flea-markets as "stagecoach guns", usually with the barrels cut to about 20". Despite what you see in John Wayne movies, a real stagecoach gun would not be a short-barreled shotgun.
