Central Arms Co. was the name applied to firearms made by the H & D Folsom/Crescent Arms Co. for the Shapleigh Hdw. Co. of St Louis. This organization, Folsom/Cresent Arms, manufactured low cost firearms under a number of different names. You could actually buy the same firearm at a number of different stores with different names on it.

These Folsom/Crescent made guns have very little collector value and in the various firearm pricing guides (which you can buy at most large book stores) they generally lump them all together (if they mention them at all) with a value of from $50 to $200 depending on condition, with the statement that you should have any one of them checked by a qualified gunsmith before shooting. That said I have noticed, though, that the value of some of these low cost "trade guns" if they are in very good condition, rarely found, are starting to escalate in value. This is especially true if they are in one of the smaller guages.

What is the best shotgun?

It depends on what you want to do. If you want to hunt, like duck, I would recommend a semi-auto shotgun chamberling at least 3 shells. If you want to shoot fast and accurately, like quail hunting or skeet shooting, I would recommend a single trigger "over and under" shotgun.(I think this is the best shotgun) But I would not recommend a double-barrel shotgun because of the barrel positions for any of these topics. If you just want to collect shotguns just get engraved and in good condition shotguns. (That's what I would recommend)
