Best Answer

Diamond Arms was a trade name used on guns distributed by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis Missouri. Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" identifies 7 different makers, but a few can be eliminated as they furnished Shapleigh with only double barreled guns. If the gun is marked only "Diamond Arms Co" it could have been made by Harrington & Richardson (1872-1985), Hopkins & Allen (1898-1915), or J Stevens Arms (1920-1942). The "E" on the serial number indicate H&R manufacture in 1944, but I would not expect the "N" following it.

How can you identify what gauge a Diamond Arms Co single barrel shotgun is by the serial no 82609?

There is no way to tell the gauge from the serial number, and that may not even be a true serial number. Diamond Arms were made by several manufacturers for distribution by the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St Louis between the 1880s and 1940s. Anyone familiar with shotguns should be able to determine the gauge by looking at the gun, but to find the proper ammunition you should also have a gunsmith measure the length of the chamber.

Who made double barreled shotgun serial number 8066?

This question can't be answered as serial numbers are not unique to a single firearm. Many manufacturers could have made a firearm with that serial number. The only way to answer this is to have a knowledgeable person look at the shotgun - most makers identified their product somewhere.

Where are the serial numbers located on a Diamond Arms shotgun?

If this is one of the Diamond shotguns imported in the last few years, it had better be clearly visible on the receiver, but most likely it is a tradename single or double barrel sold by Shapleigh Hardware c. 1890-1945. These were made by a variety of US and Belgian manufacturers. Very few will have serial numbers and there will be no records for any that do.

What is the age of 12 gauge single barrell serial 304943?

With such a great description, I can safely say it was made sometime between 1850 and today! A serial number alone tells nothing about a firearm. A few manufacturers have given a unique serial numbers to every shotgun they produced, many use a set for each different model, and most did not use serial numbers at all until it was required by the GCA of 1968. In addition, serial number lists are only available for the major manufacturers. If you can give the manufacturer's name and the model number/name, we may be able to give you an answer.
