That patent date indicates it was made by Stevens/Savage. In NRA Good (won't be able to grade any higher if refinished) should be worth around $200-$250 retail. Being a 16 guage may lower the value in some parts of the country.
10-100 USD. Yes, any of the major wood shops should be able to make one.
Single barrel, tops out at $75. Double-barrel, tops out at $175. firstname.lastname@example.org
I believe that King Nitro was a model name of Shapleigh Arms Co, St. Louis, MO.
You have already identified it as a Shapleigh's King Nitro. Shapleigh Hardware was in St Louis Missouri from the mid 19th century until the middle of the 20th. Their King Nitro guns were manufactured by W.H. Davenport and later by Stevens/Savage.

$75-$100, depending on condition, exact model, etc.
NITRO KING was a trade name used by Sears on guns they retailed through their catalogs in the late 1880's through World War I. There is no appreciable collector value, and these guns are generally considered unsafe to fire due to the twist steel barrel. Value would be in the $50 range. email@example.com
@ turn of the century; wall hanger to maybe 100 USD
Both 'King Nitro' and 'Central Arms Co' are trademarks of the Shapleigh Hardware Co, which was a major catalog retailer from the late 1800's well into the 20th century. The shotguns marketed under that name were made for Shapleigh by different companies, notably Davenport Firearms, Crescent, Hopkins & Allen, and Stevens. We'd have to see the shotgun to determine which manufacturer actually made the shotgun. www.countrygunsmith.net
Nitro King was a Sears Roebuck brand name made by Crescent Arms, 1908-1917.
i got a 12 gauge king nitro double barrel double triggers and double hammers no serial number on it
I have one, double nitro breech, and a hexogan barrel half way down. Never seen one like this.
No published sn data; 10-100 USD
"5000" is the Stevens model number, not a serial number. It was marked with the trade name for Shapleigh Hardware in St Louis around 1930. Value as either a decoration or a shooter would be $150-$250. A little more if like-new and a lot less if a basket-case.
As I saw in other faq`s answered about King Nitro shotguns, they were made by Sears,Roebuck co. We need to find those other answers and correct them. Sears Roebuck never made any guns unless you count those manufactured by their subsidiary company, Meriden Arms from 1905 to 1915. Nitro King was a Sears brand but King Nitro was a trade name distributed by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis. The guns were made by W.H. Davenport, Iver Johnson, J. Stevens (model 315 double barrel), and unidentified Belgian manufacturers.
Turn of the century plus or minus a few decades. No published sn data. Value seldom exceeds 150 USD or so
no answer but i have a king nitro 22. long rifle used in WWI/WWII has no information it took quite a hit in the chamber though it was handed down to me from my great grandfather.
King Nitro was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louise on guns made by Crescent Firearms and J. Stevens Arms.
There were many thousands of the Shapleigh King Nitro 16 Gauge with a double barrel. For the most part, they are worth about $50 to $100 depending on mechanical and finish condition.
KING NITRO Tradename used by Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri on shotguns made by Crescent Fire Arms Company and J. Stevens Arms Company
Nitro King was a trade name sold by Sears Roebuck and H&D Folsom Sporting Goods. Manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, c. 1905-15. You can invent any history you want for the last 90-100 years, 'cause no one was keeping track of it. It most likely has fluid steel barrels and could still be used as a field gun, if approved by an experienced gunsmith. But if it has a side-hammer, it probably also has a twist-steel barrel and should be a mantle decoration now. Should be worth about $50-$75 for either use.
About $150, more or less. Not very expensive, very decent shotgun. It is a High Standard Flite King.
Currently it would be a custom order.
