Diamond Arms Co was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri in the late 19th and early 20th century. It may have actually been manufactured by Iver Johnson, J. Stevens, or one of several Belgian firms. Parts will be hard to find. If you can identify it as a particular IJ or JS, Numrich Gunparts can probably supply them. Otherwise, carry it to all the gunshows within a hundred miles and dig through bins of misc parts.

I can certainly understand wanting to put Grandad's Old Gun back in working condition, but since these store-brand shotguns are not high-dollar collectables and seldom used as shooters, their value (other than sentimental value) is as a decoration. The cost of restoration or repair will probably exceed the gun's cash value.

Try your local gunsmith. The Riverside is a Stevens shotgun. If you can find out which model it is, you can probably find the wood at Numrich Gunparts

Depending on which parts, they may need to be made.
