Most likely was imported from Belgium c. 1900-1910. "Nitro" refers to smokeless powder, so it would have been made after 1900. Damascus barrels would place it before WWI.
i got a 12 gauge king nitro double barrel double triggers and double hammers no serial number on it
With the serial number that you provided,your Ithaca double barrel shotgun with the damascus barrels was produced in the year 1900.
I believe that King Nitro was a model name of Shapleigh Arms Co, St. Louis, MO.
The value of an old double barrel shotgun Damascus Bonehill Special BB London would actually be dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would include the age exactly and the condition of the shotgun.
@ turn of the century; wall hanger to maybe 100 USD
This should be a Lewis model, made in 1902.
No published sn data; 10-100 USD
The gun was produced c.1935 by Ithaca. Value will depend on condition, and can reach $500-$600.
Probably made somewhere between 1870 - 1910. If you were to tell everyone it was made around 1900 you wouldn't be far off either way.
yes you can, i got my frist at the age of 11.
Manufactured about 1902. Value has too many variables to give you a solid number, but is reduced by the Damascus barrels. You will need to visit a gun shop or gun show for a hands-on assessment of value.
No, they are different. A rifled barrel is a solid bar of steel which has a hole drilled through it down the center. The hole is spiral cut with lands and grooves (called rifling) such that when the bullet is fired, the bullet contacts the lands and spins as it moves down the barrel. This spinning stabilizes the bullet to improve range and accuracy. A Damascus barrel starts with a stack of many different kinds of steel bars. The stack is hammer welded (pounded to the point where the steel flows together) to make a flat sheet. The sheet is wrapped around a steel bar to form a shotgun barrel and hammer welded to make it complete. When new, Damascus barrels are beautiful with the many colors in the steel. They don't age well, though, and often will have subsurface corrosion which weakens them to the point where they shouldn't be fired, even with the proper black powder ammunition. They should NEVER be fired with smokeless powder ammunition.
It depends on the barrel.
Ithaca SN 68814 was manufactured in 1902 according to Ithaca Gun Company records compiled and released in 1960. It is a Lewis model if hammerless and New Ithaca Gun if it has hammers.
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.
Made in 1927
28 gauge with single barrel How do you find its age and value?
Depends on the age of the barrel
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.
King Tutankhamun became king at the age of 9.
50-400 USD; @ 30-40 yrs old
That Lefever was made in 1923.
