There were two makers of Mass. Arms Co. shotguns, Stevens Arms & Tool Company and Crescent Fire Arms Company. If the gun was made by Crescent it was made before 1915 and if by Stevens it was made after 1920. A quick way to identify the maker is to look at the butt stock where it joins the frame. A Crescent made gun will have a smooth joint. A Stevens made gun will have a… Read More
No one answer. That depends on the load and the powder used. Please understand that as used in that sentence, grain refers to a unit of weight, and not the individual grains of powder. Typical charge weights can vary from 17-35 grains.
1000 to 5000. If it is in good condition, fires well, doesn't jam, has been taken care of, no hard wear and tear, close to 5 k. Has to be in great condition for that. Make sure it is cleaned and oiled before you sell it, if you sell it. If it is a pile of junk and looks like it went through Hell and back, only about 1000 if it is in okay condition… Read More
High grade shotgun. Better wood, better metal fit and finish. VERY nice guns.
Federal law- anywhere in the US- 10 years for the shotgun, 5 years for felon in possession.
16 gauge, 2 and 3/4 inch, any shot from fine birdshot to buckshot.
About $100 or so. The damascus/twist steel barrels are generally considered unsafe to shoot with modern ammunition.
can dui felon carry a shotgun
I need to know the year and value of my light twelve gage semi auto shotgun.
That's like asking if you'd rather have a car or a scoop of ice cream. Glock GmbH is an Austrian-owned manufacturer of handguns who produces several models for various purposes. There are many, many companies that build shotguns and thousands of variations. There is no way to answer this question without knowing what criteria is used to define "better"; which requires knowing what task you are wanting to be able to perform.
Measure the mass (M) of the shot. Measure the volume (V) of water displaced by the shot. Calculate the density (D = M / V).
The W.H. Davenport Firearms Company of Norwich CT were makers of single shot shotguns from 1881 to 1900. Acme was one of Davenport's brand names. These were not expensive guns when new, and depending on condition would be worth $60-$90 now.
Yes, a 12 gauge shotgun is considered a firearm.
Unfortunately, W. Richard was a low quality shotgun that attempted to cash in on the very fine quality Westley Richards guns. No connection between the two. Made early 1900s. sold by Sears.
Contact the maker- they are still in business. Atkin Grant & Lang, Windmill Road, Markyate, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL3 8LP, United KingdomTel: +44 (0)1582 849 382 Fax: +44 (0)1582 849 382 E-Mail: info [at] agl-uk.com
50 meters. The maximum range is about 960 meters, but the maximum EFFECTIVE range is 50 meters.
You won't. Your Wide Awake is a "Hardware Store" gun- made by W.H. Davenport for sale by several private hardware stores. W. H. Davenport Arms Company was in business at various places and times from 1880 to 1910, Until 1968, rifles and shotguns were not required by law to have serial numbers, and low cost guns usually do not have one. Yes, it is perfectly legal to own such a gun- it IS highly illegal… Read More
I have never heard of an iron ton. But I know 16 gauges are more expensive, and they aren't made as much anymore. Ammo is plentiful, but the gun is not. I'd say $1200, depending on the age and condition of the gun
It is a 12 GA pump action shotgun.
Russell Arms was used by several makers in the 1890-1915 time period. If yours is a "top break" gun, remove the forearm, then open and remove the barrels, and check the frame under where the barrels close. However, you may not find a serial number. They were not required by US law on rifles and shotguns until 1968. Perfectly legal to own a pre-1968 gun that never had a serial number. Highly illegal to REMOVE… Read More
There ARE bolt action shotguns and handguns, such as the Mossberg 183 or the Remington XP-100- but they are not common. Lever action shotguns and handguns are also pretty rare.
The light shown by the flash travels at the speed of light, while sound waves travels slower. It is the different speeds of light and sound that causes sound to be heard after seeing the flash.
0.729 inches or 18.5 mm
in realy good codition about $400
You can try Hasting's. They make after market barrels.
I would start my search at Gun Parts Corp.they can be found on the web.
Your Browning auto-5 shotgun with the serial number 73v18957 indicates that you have the magnum version of the auto-5 and that it was made in the year 1973.
Your sears shotgun was made by H&R.It is the H&R model 120.
A box of shotgun shells is usually 25 rounds. Some of the buckshot, slug, and specialty rounds are packaged in five round packs. That being said, the predominate 25 round box is often packed in cases of ten boxes. However, there are four box and twenty box cases. Particularly if you are using twelve gauge size rounds, more than twenty boxes would be awkward (and heavy) to move.
You may be able to view a exploaded diagram at Numrich Gun Parts corp.Just type in the make and model number and it hould come up for you.
Your Belnap model B63E was made by Savage arms Company and is their model 940E.these models will bring between 75-150 dollars on today,s market.
Westerfield which was the name for (Montomery Wards firearms) were made by many different firms.Savage/Stevens,Noble,Marlin,and Mossberg to name just a few.
Around $25-$50. Likely origin is Belgium, STRONGLY advise that you do NOT attempt to fire it. That time frame covers guns made for black powder shells, not smokeless. The 16 gauge shell was shorter back then, and many of those guns used a Twist steel barrel.
I would be hard pressed to give you a value without a much more detailed description of your shotguns overall condition to include the amount of blueing remaining,the woods overall condition(any cracks or chips)and the condition of the barrel(any pitting,or dents).Your serial number indicates tht your Browning 16 gauge shotgun was made in the first year of production,which was 1909.The serial number range was from 1-3200.
Forensic analysis of a gunshot wound can not determine intent, only the physical details, such as angle and distance from muzzle. You'd have to ask the person who pulled the trigger.
A Rast & Gasser 1898 in excellent condition is roughly $1,000 US. Values drop sharply for lesser condition.
Your shotgun was made for Montgomery Wards by Savage/Stevens, and is also THEIR Model SB-100. Unfortunately, there the trail goes cold. Savage only has records going back to the last time they were sold- in 1995. The fact that it has a serial number would place it between 1968 and 1995. (SNs not required by law on shotguns until 1968) Sorry.
Condition is everything when considering the value of a firearm.A Browning auto-5 in 20ga, will bring between 375-600 dollars for a firearm showing between 60%-95% of its original finish,and a good bore.The 60% condition reflects 375.00 dollars and the 95% reflects the 600.00 dollars.When I say original finish,I am talking about the finish on the wood and metal parts of your shotgun.
They were made for the Shapleigh hardware store chain roughly 1920-s-early 1940s.
Smithsonian was the trade brand name used by Crescent Fire Arms Co. and later Crescent-Davis. The distributor/retailer was H & D Folsom. Likely production in the 1900-1925 time period. No relation to the Smithsonian Institute.
The 498th Eng. Hvy. Shop Co. was in the E.T.O. (European Theater of Operations) on V-E Day. At that time its commanding officer was Capt. J.T. Lyons. If you have the Discharge Paper(s) of the veteran that served in the 498th, I would be interested in obtaining a copy. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com
You may be referring to Co. G, 120th Infantry Regiment, 30th Infantry Division. If this is the case, I can provide you with information about each week that the 120th spent in the E.T.O., 1944-45.

Are you sure it says ARMORY and not ARMS?
yes, almost all are on record just post the #s and I will try to give you an answer
Various manufacturers, primarily Crescent Firearms and J. Stevens Arms.
I don't own one. But, if it's in good working condition, and you have a use for a .410 shotgun, it's certainly worth keeping around. If it's in bad condition, or doesn't work properly, then it's not. It's up to you.
Newport: Trade name used by the H. & D. Folsom Arms Company on shotguns made for Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett and Company of Chicago. Could have been anytime from the 1890's to around 1950 and would be worth from $35-$75.
This gun would have been manufactured by High Standard, but I cannot cross reference it to a particular model. With the HS name it would retail for something between $200 and $400. With the Sears trade name it is likely to be one of the lower priced HS models and would retail for about $150-$200 actually Sears and Roebuck owned all of High Standards rifle and shotgun productio back in the late 40s to the… Read More
Would need a little more information, like manufacturer and model for starters. But for any useable shotgun, you can go to Walmart and locate the least expensive new gun with the same action type and figure your used gun is worth from 1/2 to 2/3 of its price.
Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. I know I've found who actually made the model 1929, but can't quite locate that information right now. It would have been one of the second-tier manufacturers of good utility guns, like Stevens or Crescent. I think this would be a break-action single shot, so would be priced something less than a similar new gun and a New England Firearms model is about $90 in… Read More
I can only find two Montgomery Wards shotguns listed with with "XNH" in the model id. One is a Nobel 60 or 66 pump action. If this is it, it was made between 1953 and 71 and valued at $75-$150. That's a lot more than I would pay since one of these turned my arm black and blue from the shoulder to the elbow. The other was a Marlin 55 bolt action. It was manufactured… Read More
No such model is listed in the Blue Book or Standard Catalog.
Purchased by New England Westinghouse in 1916 and the line was discontinued. Trade name and production facilities purchased by Savage Arms in 1920 and operated as a semi-independent division until 1948 then became Stevens-Savage. The name was discontinued in 1991 but revived on a limited number of models in 1999.
The value of the gun depends a lot on the condition. A Columbia Arms Shotgun ejector model could be anywhere from $100 to $1,800.
The gun was manufactured sometimes around 1947, perhaps a bit earlier. I purchased one new from a store in Beaumont, Texas in July, 1947. Mine came with a Teonite (Plastic) stock and forearm. The stock was crafted to look like a piece of walnut, grade XXXX with lots of swirls and other figure. I paid $47.00 for mine, and I have put about 6 to 8 boxes of shells through it to date. It still… Read More
== == Acme Arms Company was a tradename used by the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company on pistols and shotguns produced for the Cornwall Hardware Co. of New York. They had a double barrel 12 ga. with external hammers. The shotgun is worth anywhere from $75 to $350 depending on the condition.
To get your answer, you will need to determine the condition. Start by looking up the NRA Condition Grading Definitions For Antique Firearms. You can find these in a number of places. Try searching for "NRA Condition Grading Definitions For Antique Firearms" using the Google search form to the right. Be realistic in your appraisal. To get a reliable estimate of the value of your gun, see a professional appraiser. If you just want a… Read More
Trade name made by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and marketed through H&D Folsom, New York. Value is between $100 and $250, depending on condition.
A Franchi 500 is worth about $325 in excellent condition, all the way down to about $100 in poor condition. This info is from the 2004 Standard Catalog of Firearms.
Does it say J. Stevens AND Co or J. Stevens ARMS & TOOL Co or J. Stevens ARMS Co? The first would have been made from 1865 to 1886, the second from 1886 to 1915, and the third from 1920 to about 1945 (unlikely if it has damascus barrels). Value is $100 - $300 depending on condition, but only as a mantle decoration. Damascus or twist barrels were fine when they were produced, but were… Read More
$150-$250, depending on condition.
The Stevens Maynard Junior was manufactured 1902 to 1912. It was a flimsy little gun with a particularly weak wrist, so not many have survived. Today, one in poor condition might bring $100. One in excellent condition would be at least $300.
You will need to do a detailed inspection. Schoverling & Daly imported shotguns under the Charles Daly name from makers in Prussia (like Schiller and Lindner), Germany (like Heym and Sauer), J&W Tolley of England, Newmann of Belgium, and even LeFever Arms of New York. If you do not know how to disassemble your gun to examine (and reassemble, of course), take it to a reputable gunsmith. The maker's marks and European proofs are there… Read More
From a knowledgeable gunsmith, the answer is "Stevens"
Since there are no IJ collectors bidding these up unless in like-new original condition, it is worth from 1/2 to 2/3 the price of a new single shot or about $45-$60. Or even less if it is rusted or broken. But then, if you can add a few dollars worth of electrical parts to a rusty one, these are offered as floor lamps for $300 or more.
I would need a more detailed description or photos to be sure, but I suspect you have a "Zulu" shotgun. These were made in the late 1800's by removing the breech of old military muzzle loading percussion military arms and fitting them with various types of breech loading mechanisms as cheap shotguns. The B in a shield is probably a European proof mark.
Value will depend a lot on condition, but the real definition is "a price that is acceptable to a willing buyer and seller", so unless either you or the seller was forced into the transaction, the value is what you bid. That said, I hope you didn't pay more than $35 if it is badly worn or inoperable or more than about $150 unless it is absolutely like new. If you got the original box… Read More
I am not sure about the 410 but a 12ga. is anywhere from $400 to $200 depending on the condition. I have just researched this and found that it is a model 330 made between 1926-1935. Hope this helps.
Value of the Model 24 varies greatly by exact model, condition and .22LR vs. .22 mag. The .22LR over 20-gauge is usually in the $200 to $400 range. Well-used examples may bring less, excellent ones more. I would like to get brand and model numbers to consider for purchase...anyone have an idea?
An 18 gauge is not impossible. Between about 1860 and 1915 almost every size was used at least once by someone-somewhere, and someone else-somewhere else would probably pay a premium for an unusual gauge. However, an 18 marking would more likely indicate the choke size. I believe that would be a very tight choke on a 12 gauge. Are you sure there are no other markings? Is it a single shot, double barrel, pump action… Read More
about 225$$ for used.....
Without knowing who made it I can give you a broad price range of 200-20000 USD.
A fixed choke is a choke that can not be removed or changed.
I saw one today in a Standard Field Grade in Good condition with a price tag of $1,000 Dollars in a Local Gun Shop in Pennsylvania.*
Start at the library.
I believe the Hawthorne was made by LaSalle.
Do an internet search with the words Brazil, shotgun and 20 gauge'
The drilling you describe does not appear to be a Charles Daly import. I suggest that you have the gun professionally appraised by an advanced collector.
Remove the 5 screws and keep track of where they came from. They are all different. Thru the hole of the horizontal screw that holds the side plates together, poke a smaller diameter object thru and try to catch the plate on the opposite side and push it out. Both of the side plates have to be removed. Remove the trigger assembly and the stock should side out. It took me hours to figure this… Read More

Central Arms Co. was the name applied to firearms made by the H & D Folsom/Crescent Arms Co. for the Shapleigh Hdw. Co. of St Louis. This organization, Folsom/Cresent Arms, manufactured low cost firearms under a number of different names. You could actually buy the same firearm at a number of different stores with different names on it. These Folsom/Crescent made guns have very little collector value and in the various firearm pricing guides (which… Read More
Your shotgun was actually manufactured by the Crescent Firearms Co. of Conn. They were prolific producers of what are called "Hardware Guns". Crescent produced shotguns for any company or distributor with their name on it, if they paid for the cost of the stamp.They produced under several hundred different names. A Googe search will provide more information.
I'm thinking that you are looking for antique cannons that fire shotgun size rounds and that load from the "Breach" or back instead of the front or "Muzzle".

Barrel at least eighteen inches. Have reliable witnesses, in case you want to avoid a repeat of Randy Weaver's adventures at Ruby Ridge.
An internet search will turn up some information.
I brought the same model about 2yrs ago for NZ$1000. I'm told they are valued between NZ$800-1500 depending on condition. The Miroku 800 is the best trap gun I've ever owned, a beautiful peice of craftmanship.
Look on auctionarms.com or eBay
An assault rifle is a rifle that has more than 22'' inches of barrel and has selective firing rate, while the carbine rifle has a less 22'' inches barrel and semi automatic. ^^ Wrong.. An assault rifle is any select fire rifle that is chambered for an intermediate cartridge... Barrel length has nothing to do with it. The M16 has a 20" barrel length and is considered an assault rifle. The AK47 has a 16"… Read More
L. Christophe was a well respected Belgium maker. There were a lot of really cheap Belgian guns made, but Christophe made some good guns. Go to www.doublegunshop.com and ask on the bulletin board. You'll need to post some pics and be prepared to give some details on the gun when they ask for them.
Charles Parker of Meridian Connecticut became a dominant name in coffee mill manufacturing during the 19th century. Originally Charles was under contract to Lewis & Holt Company in 1828. Lewis & Holt patnership dissolved in 1833, in 1834 it was bought out by Charles Parker. (His brother Edmund and Herman White obtained one of the earliest coffee mill patents in 1832) Parker & White and Holt & White coffee mills were produced in the mid… Read More
I just purchased the gun you are talking about for $35 at a local auction. So the value, to m, is $35 or less.
Columbia was a trade name used on shotguns built by Harrington& Richardson from around 1900-1940 (or so).
There are numerous good books on the market (although some are now out of print) covering Parker shotguns. The internet, of course, might also be helpfull. The two books I have on Parkers are. 1. "Parker America's Finest Shotgun" by Peter Johnson, Stackpole Books. 2. "The Parker Gun" by Larry Baer, Beinfeld Publishing. I suspect that both of these are now out of print, you might get lucky in a used book store though. Another… Read More
