Secret Service Special was a trade name used on inexpensive revolvers retailed by the Rohde-Spencer Company of Chicago. The Howard Arms Co name was distributed by H&D Folsom, usually on shotguns made by their subsidiary company, Crescent Firearms, or imported from Belgium. If R-S ordered revolvers from Folsom, they would quite possibly have both names.

There is no such thing. The Cowboy Ranger revolver is not made by Colt. The reason it has Colt stamped on the barrel is because you can use Colt ammunition. The Cowboy Ranger revolver is a pre WW1 revolver that was distributed in the US but also brought over from the soldiers as they returned from the war. If you can find any information on the manufacturing date and how to identify it please let me know

First of all describe the gun. Is it a revolver, or a shotgun? A revolver has a grip but so does a shotgun (actually a for end).

Usually stamped on the frame. Swing out the cylinder, and it's below where the barrel meets the frame. Usually starts with a"K", or "1K",etc. On older S&W revolvers, it was stamped on the butt of the gun.

The production year is not stamped on a gun. It is the serial number that is used to tell which batch was made in a particular year. Go to: proofhouse.com for listings.

Open the cylinder and see if there is a model number stamped on the frame. Also, how is 'ATF' marked on the gun? List the markings EXACTLY as they are and where they are on the gun. sales@countrygunsmith.net

open the cylinder, and it should be stamped there along with the serial number

I have a friend who has a 32 cal, break open hammerless revolver, chrome finished, in excellent shape. As near as the person who had it remembered, it was perchased around the early thirties. It is stamped American Revolver co. with ivory grips.

Could be the issued officer's initials and badge number.

If it is stamped inside in the middle of the back, it is French, probably from around 1900.

My Worthington Special 12 ga. has "1929 model" stamped right on the barrel

0-1000 USD depending on EXACTLY what you have and its condition.

Impossible to answer without a detailed description of ALL markings.

The year a HS model 10 22 revolver was made should be stamped on the metal below the barrel on the left hand side of the gun. This will be a bit ahead of where the grip begins.

Open the cylinder and look at the frame that is usually hidden by the crane. The serial number is stamped on the frame.
