The old nitro hunter was made in the early part of the 20th century. Most of the guns that i have seen are pretty well used. The value of the shotgun is about the same value of a modern single barrel in the same condition. There is no real collectors value to speak of, for the old guns. A man told me that he had been offered 500.00 dollars for a Nitro hunter. I responded, "Thats where two fools met, He was a fool for offering and you were a fool for not taking it".

Might be a gun for fools with little retail value, but to some of us, this gun means something. The guns were bought for survival by old timers in this part of the country. That's why you probably won't find one in mint condition just like you won't find an old plow that is in mint condition. Lots of people have these guns as heirlooms. So, to use a cliche, that makes them "priceless" to some of us.

There were many thousands of the Shapleigh King Nitro 16 Gauge with a double barrel. For the most part, they are worth about $50 to $100 depending on mechanical and finish condition.

Nitro Hunter: Trade name manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and retailed by Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Kentucky. "Nitro" implies that it was intended for smokeless powder. Not much collector interest in hardware store guns, but if it is checked out by a qualified gunsmith, it may be worth $200+ as a shooter.

How much a Springfield 16-gauge single shot is worth largely depends on the condition of the rifle. In good condition, it is valued at about 70 US dollars.
