it is all swirly
Have it examined by a competent gunsmith
depends on make, model and condition
Yes. I have one. Double barrel, hammer gun. Damascus steel barrels. Circa 1895 I think.
Steel or Damascus barrels?
Depends if its damascus steel or not.
A damascus barrel is a barrel made of damascus steel, which is steel produced by hammering two different steels together. The twist refers to the pieces of steel being twisted while they are hammered, which produces the distinctive pattern on the steel.
Damascus steel is made by folding a mild steel together with a high-carbon steel to make it stronger, and gives it a pretty pattern. Problem with Damascus barrels is that, while they work fine with low pressure black powder loads, modern smokeless shotshells are likely to cause the barrel to rupture, which is bad. If a shotgun has a Damascus barrel, it's very old and probably just a wall-hanger.
What is a Falcon Arms double barrel Hammerlock shotgun 20646 made with belgium laminated steel worth?
Does it read "kec" or "ked"? The Remington web site indicates 4 grades of Remington model 1900 double barrel shotguns (http://www.remington.com/library/history/firearm_models/shotguns/model_1900.asp): Grades Offered: K - Remington steel barrelsKE - Remington steel, auto ejectorsKD - 2 stripe Damascus barrelsKED - 2 strip Damascus, auto ejectors
yes but steel shot will eventually ruined the barrel lead will not
If this is the model 215, the barrels are steel.
THis is not the name of the shotgun, but kind of barrel, made in Belgium. Acier means Steel, and Cockerill stands for "Cockerill-Sambre" the name of the steel maker.
Damascus is a type of steel used usually of older firearms and tools
Most of these guns were made with compressed steel which is similar to Damascus. The enterprise shotguns were Belgium. In good usable condition this should be worth about $150.00 to 250 USD.
If you're lucky about £400.00
I can say that the marking stevens Arms and Tool company was marked on stevens made firearms from 1886-1915.This time period would include your double barrel shotgun.As to value that would dpend on your shotgun having steel barrel or Damascus twist steel barrel(BLACKPOWDER ONLY).The ovreall condition would also be important.
NO! This is EXTREMELY dangerous!
About $100 or so. The damascus/twist steel barrels are generally considered unsafe to shoot with modern ammunition.
If Vulcan steel barrel means very old or "Damascus" type twist steel barrels, the answer is an emphatic "NO". You're too young to die, no matter what your current age.
a wall hanger. $130. Depending on shape. Are u willing to sell?
I have the same. It reads Daminated Steel on the rib. It has Belgian makers marks with the gunsmith mark being a crown over JJ. Very little info available but it was a play on Damascus and Laminated. Probably ill advised to fire it.
