Nitro Hunter: Trade name manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and retailed by Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Kentucky. "Nitro" implies that it was intended for smokeless powder. Not much collector interest in hardware store guns, but if it is checked out by a qualified gunsmith, it may be worth $200+ as a shooter.

Whats a manhatten arms nitro powder 12 gauge double barrel hammerless worth?

Manhatten Arms was a trade name used by several manufacturers on shotguns made for the various large catalog and hardware chains around the turn of the 20th century. The fact that yours is hammerless and marked for 'nitro powder' (smokeless powder) indicates manufacture sometime after 1900 but before 1920. Your gun was probably made by the Hunter Arms Co (the same company that made LC Smith shotguns from 1890-1945) for a major New York hardware/catalog store. As to value, condition and originality are most important. An excellent original example might bring $400 from an LC Smith collector.

How much is a Nitro Hunter single shot 12 gauge worth?

The old nitro hunter was made in the early part of the 20th century. Most of the guns that i have seen are pretty well used. The value of the shotgun is about the same value of a modern single barrel in the same condition. There is no real collectors value to speak of, for the old guns. A man told me that he had been offered 500.00 dollars for a Nitro hunter. I responded, "Thats where two fools met, He was a fool for offering and you were a fool for not taking it". Might be a gun for fools with little retail value, but to some of us, this gun means something. The guns were bought for survival by old timers in this part of the country. That's why you probably won't find one in mint condition just like you won't find an old plow that is in mint condition. Lots of people have these guns as heirlooms. So, to use a cliche, that makes them "priceless" to some of us.

What is the value of a 12 gauge Nitro Hunter double barrel stainless shotgun with hammers serial 5915?

'Nitro-Hunter' was a known trade name used by the Belknap Hardware Co on shotguns they retailed through their mail-order catalog before World War I. Since your gun has hammers, I suspect the origin is Belgian. Remove the barrel set and look on the underside for the telltale Belgian proofmark of the letters ELG in an oval. There is a possibility the gun was made domestically, probably by the Crescent Arms Co, in which case it will not have the Belgian proofmarks. It certainly is not stainless steel. That material was not used in firearms until many decades later. Perhaps someone has had it ... plated....... Value is as a decorator only. Typical specimens sell in the $100-$200 range with most under $175. If it has been nickel plated, who knows. sales@countrygunsmith.net
