I don't know the value, but I have one. They were made in Hatfield, MA 1878-1908 (source GabelGuns.com) I'm contemplating donating mine to a museum--if so, I'll get it appraised and might be able to help you with the value. You can e-mail me at wfeich@yahoo.com.

I ALSO HAVE A C. S. SHATTUCK SINGLE SHOT 12GA. I JUST AQUIRERED IT AND DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT IT OR HAVE EVER HEARD OF THE NAME. IT HAS A 30 INCH BBL, AND BREAKS OPEN WITH YOUR THUMB ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE TRIGGER. S/N 6987; THE INSIDE OF BARREL HAS A SPIRAL KIND OF TWIST TO IT, IS THIS DAMASCAS? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT WORTH BUT IT SEEMS IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. ALSO THE OUTSIDE OF THE BARREL SEEMS LIKE IT WAS BRIGHT AT ONE TIME, NICKEL OR JUST THE TYPE OF STEEL I DON'T KNOW. I SOLVE THE PUZZLE OF THE C. S. SHATTUCK SHOTGUNS.

You have a well-made, but unexciting, firearm. Not really suitable for sporting purposes due to its age (possibly laminated barrels and probably short chambers) and not something sought by "serious" collectors (that means the ones who have money to burn). It really has value only as a mantle decoration. $75 if it is a single shot, up to $250 if it is a double with big side hammers.

I have a CS Shattuck shotgun, a double-barreled 12 ga. hammerless, I bought for $300 at Friendship, IN. I have completeley rehabbed it, finding that all action parts are hand made, including springs. The barrel is Damascus Steel, layered.

It was my understanding that only about 1,000 of these shotguns were made, and that they shot black powder loads, no information available as to power. I have it mounted for show, and enjoyed seeing how well made it was before automation.

I also read that one of Shattuck's employees was named Mossberg....

What is the value and date of a C.S. Shattuck single shot 12 gauge It says IDEAL on the top of the Barrel and when you break the barrel it has a number of 46155

C.S. Shattuck Arms Co., Hatfield, Mass. (1878 to 1908)

In 1875 C.S. Shattuck and Andrew Hyde started a pistol manufacturing business in Springfield, Mass. In February of 1877, Andrew Hyde and Major Charles S. Shattuck brought their Springfield pistol manufacturing business to Hatfield and went into a partnership with Mrs. Mary D. Porter in the Thomas Meekin sawmill on Prospect St., formerly Crescent Pistol Co. est. 1874 (Shattuck possibly also had, concurrently or otherwise a gun shop on Bridge St. in Hatfield, dates unknown). In 1878 Mrs. Porter withdrew her partnership and the business was continued by Hyde and Shattuck. In 1880 Shattuck bought out Hyde and continued the factory alone, turning out many revolvers. Soon after he began to make single-barreled breech-loading shotguns, and then few years later double-barreled shotguns. Large quantities of both were made, averaging for a time 15,000 guns per year. The gun shop was burned in 1881 and was immediately rebuilt on the same site. The manufacture of guns was abandoned in 1909. In 1910 the only arms being turned out was a new four-shot pistol*, but for how long is unknown.

Major Charles S. Shattuck served with the 6th Vermont Infantry in the Civil War and later lived on Main St. in Hatfield, Mass. He returned at least once to Vermont for a military reunion.

Shattuck was best known for inexpensive handgun and single barrel shotguns. Their single barrels are valued from $35 to $150, double barrels $100-$400 depending on condition. The 8 bores may command more.

CS Shattuck was in operation from 1878 to 1908. I can't measure the bore from here, but it is probably a 12 gauge, but during that time range anything from 8 to 32 gauge is possible.

Check your spelling- Shattuck has 2 Ts. Not a lot of information on CS Shattuck arms. In 1875 C.S. Shattuck and Andrew Hyde started a pistol manufacturing business in Springfield, Mass. In February of 1877, Andrew Hyde and Major Charles S. Shattuck brought their Springfield pistol manufacturing business to Hatfield and went into a partnership with Mrs. Mary D.

The gun shop was burned in 1881 and was immediately rebuilt on the same site. The manufacture of guns was abandoned in 1909. In 1910 the only arms being turned out was a new four-shot pistol, but for how long is unknown. Shattuck firearms were modest quality and cost. There may be some collectors value, depending on exact model and condition, but not extremely high $$$.
