What is info on an Eastern Arms Company single barrel 12 guage that shows no serial number and only other info says Proof Tested 12 gauge?
Eastern arms was a small in home outfit that built firearms for individuals somewhere in Europe. They manufactured very few firearms, and they where mostly handcrafted. Each gun was an original. Although I have never heard of them creating a 12 guage its not impossible, most of the firearms they built were larger,10,8,6,4, and alot of speculation that they may have built a 2 guage. There was only two gentlemen that built these firearms, and I am not sure of there names. I you out a little.
I'd like some of whatever the person giving the last answer is smoking. Eastern Arms Company is a trade name that was used by Sears Roebuck c. 1900-1940. The actual manufacturer could have been Meriden Firearms, J. Stevens, Savage Arms or whoever offered the lowest price in a particular year.
I also have this shotgun and have been all over the internet trying to locate parts. I desperately need a fore end stock. I found a number on the receiver where the fore end normally covers. # 263, and 1/4" below that is a "B". I'd realy appreciate some help locating parts if they are available.

What is the approximate value and manufacture date of a Browning A-5 with serial number 78xx with a plain barrel and burled walnut stock?
This serial number would indicate a gun made in 1904. To be sure that this is not an early gun, you can check the barrel. If the gun was made in 1904, the barrel would be stamped: BROWNING AUTOMATIC ARMS COMPANY It is probable that your gun is more modern. Check the gun for a letter above or preceding the 78xx number. The complete serial number would be required to answer the question. Thank you

How do you tell how old and what type a J Stevens shotgun is if it is marked J Stevens Springfield and has the number 147k on the receiver under the barrel?
There have been several variations of the company name, but never just "J Stevens". The "Springfield" name was used from 1920 until about 1948 and during this time the company was called J. Stevens Arms Co. The type is determined by looking at the gun: single shot, double barrel, pump, etc. The gauge, if not marked on the barrel, can be determined by measuring the chamber. 147K MAY be the model number.
