Many makers made double barrel 8 bores british ,p.webley ,greener,are just a couple. then there wher American ,Parker, and i believe armi in the sixties made some

Check with Rossi Customer Service through their website. Several makers of top break shotguns will sell additional barrels, but require that RIFLES be fitted to the barrel at their factory (higher working pressures with rifle)

Probably not. There is no standardization between makers. Come to think of it, why do different cars use different spark plugs? Same thing.

There's not a lot of information available and most authors disagree on that. Carey's American Firearms Makers says the company was in Norwich Ct from 1855 to 1894 and made single shot percussion and metallic cartridge rifles. Vorisek's Shotgun Markings lists 4 different names, W.H. Davenport Firearms Company, W.H. Davenport Arms Company, Davenport Arms Company, and W.H. Davenport & Co., and gives dates from 1878 to 1910. The Standard Catalog says they made single barrel shotguns from 1880 to 1915 and single shot rifles from 1891 to 1910. Traister's Antique Guns says they made single shot and double barrel shotguns in Providence, RI. The Official Price Guide to Antique and Modern Firearms says single and double shotguns in Providence, 1880-1883, and Norwich, 1890-1900.

so many shorguns were made and imported since early 1900 that it is near impossible to find all makers names. Also, many makers made shotguns for dealer and the dealers had their brand put on the shotguns................

Crescent. H&D, Folsom, Browning, Winchester, Remington

Montgomery Ward did not make firearms. They contracted with makers and had their store brand put on them.

Henry shotguns were manufactured by several Belgian makers and also by Crescent Arms. The other markings Identify it as a product of Anciens Etablissments Pieper (1905-1957). Since the import of firearms from Europe pretty much ended with the start of World War 2 and fluid steel barrels became the norm about the same time, yours was probably made between 1905 and 1914.

condition is key. from $150 to several hundred. 28 ga is a premium for all makers.

No disrespect intended, but honestly, with no more description than you have given, it could be anywhere from $10 to $50,000 or even more. If manufactured in 1818, it could still be a flintlock and by 1909 it would almost certainly be a breech-loader. A "typical" utility double barrel, either a percussion muzzle-loader circa 1830-1880 or an early breech-loader circa 1865-1915, should bring from $100 to $250 as a mantle decoration. Shotguns by the top makers like Westley Richards or Parker Bros will bring thousands of dollars.

Yes. ******* However, some makers reccommend that steel shot not be used in older guns due to accelerated wear of the barrel at the choke Softer steels used in SOME barrels). When in doubt, check with the maker.

The term "Long Tom" was used to denote a muzzle loading cannon that had a barrel much longer than standard. While slower to load, it had greater range. Over the years it has been applied to guns with a longer than usual barrel, notably shotguns. It is a name used by several makers- the earliest that I have found is between the late 1890's and early 1900s, but they were made up into the 1920s."Long Tom" was an unofficial name for a muzzle loading cannon with a much longer than usual barrel- slower to load, greater range. The name was borrowed by shotgun makers around 1900 to denote a shotgun (usually a single shot) with a longer than usual barrel. Not a brand name, but a model name.

Most makers use steel of one type or another.

Any of the major barrel makers should be able to help you - Lija, McMillan, etc..

No such weapon. 410 shotguns have been made by Win, Browning, Purdey, H&H to name a few.

Brown. British gun makers, vol. 1. Page 105 gives a list.

Made around 1886 according to the makers marks on the barrels (do not shoot modern 12 ga ammo in this) black-powder shot shells should be used. after you have a gunsmith check it out. Mine is worth all i can get....from $200 to $500 if the buyer is in love with it.

they used ordinary tools wooden nails and hammers. They didn't have any of the stuff we have but they were able to make it through using what they had
