My father and I own a 32 inch barrel,16 gauge,single shot ,Cranberry shotgun. This gun was purchased second hand in 1902 by my great great grandfather. This is all of the information I have : First, the ore for the steel in these guns was supposed to have been mined in the Cranberry mine,located in Cranberry, North Carolina. These guns were distributed by C.M.McClung and Company of Knoxville Tennesse. All information I have on C.M.McClung is that they were located in Knoxville, T.N.and served as a large hardware store for the local area. They were also set up to sell, (at least nationwide)as a catalog store. Also I know that these guns were available in 12,20,and 16 gauge.

How do you find records of cm mcclung co Knoxville TN makers of the cranberry 12-gauge shotgun?

CM McClung never manufactured any of their guns. They were a company much like sears, meaning they were aboth a warehouse type store and a mail order company as well. The McClung company was founded in 1884 in Knoxville, where they stayed throughout their business lifetime. the old main headquarters buurned down in 2007. I myself own two cranberry shotguns, one of which my greatgrandfather traded for second handed in 1902. I have done alot research and so far I can only guess that Crescent firearms probably made these guns. I do know that crescent made both a cherokee and a jackson shotgun for CM McMlung. According to "ask doc knox" of the knox news, They began advertising the cherokee somewhere between 1900 and 1905. With the knowledge of my cranberry, I would feel it is safe to say that the cranberry was sod around this same time. As for the name "Cranberry" , the gun was named after the town (actually a community) in wich the iron ore was mined, and that was Cranberry, North Carolina. You can find more info at the East Tennessee History Center in Knoxville. I want to go and see what I can find as son as i get the chance . If you find out anything interesting , please let me know by email at . Thanks, KEN
