Chicago Arms Co was a trade name used by Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett on shotguns imported from (mostly) Belgium. The dates you have been given would be in the range for that company to have been the retailer, but I think too early for a slide action. In the condition you describe, it will be worth very little. If you wanted to buy one, you would probably have a hard time finding one for sale, but if you want to sell it you may have an even harder time finding an interested buyer.
The value of a Continental Arms company 20 gauge shotgun is dependent upon a number of factors. The age and condition of the shotgun would need to be considered when determining the value.
Victor Arms Company: Trade name used by the H. & D. Folsom Arms Company on firearms made for the Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett and Company of Chicago. c. 1900. Value would be about $50-$75.
The exact value of a Savage Arms Stevens model 77m shotgun is actually dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would be the age and condition of the shotgun.
not an answer but I also have a single barrel 12 ga #x27050 and am looking for value.
I have a Continental Arms Co. 12 gauge shotgun that is probably about 70 years old that belonged to my grandfather. Any ideas of value and where do I go to sell it?

the gun has two hammers and on the barrels is stated laminated steel
The age would be around 45 to 60 years and the value would be around 45 to 60 dollars.
70-100 years or so; seldom exceeds 100 USD
c.1900-1930. There is no model number. These were hardware catalog shotguns and value is going to top out at $100. email@example.com
