American Gun Company was a trade name used by Crescent Firearms for H.D. Folsom at their retail outlets.

Make sure you have it checked by a gunsmith before you shoot modern shells with those Damascus barrels.

yellopops - How old is your friend? If he's over 200 years old, you may be wrong. 28 guage has been used since the days of muzzle-loading guns and is still being made.

What are facts about E M Reilly shotguns?

Reilly made or marked shotguns from the late percussion era (say 1860) through about 1915. I've seen many hammer guns, fewer hammerless, but both side lock and box lock. Their name also appears on handguns and rifles. Quality seems to be higher than average, with most guns showing good engraving and better than average wood. Most barrels are damascus, but I've seen Whitworth, and many have been "tubed" in the modern era. Generally nice pieces, and you'll most likely be quite happy with your find!
