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.
Whichever one you pull the trigger to.
The back one is for the left hand barrel and the front is for the right hand barrel.
Break open the action and it should be engraved on the metal that is normally unseen when the action is close, that or it should be on the barrel. If the chokes are removable then it should be engraved on those as well.
The value of a Savage shot barrel 12 gauge single trigger shotgun depends on its condition. This gun in excellent condition is valued between 450.00 and 550.00 as of 2014.

The front trigger opened the breach.
do you have a picture
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)
I have a 12 gauge shotgun with the numbers 4041 on it. It has a double barrel and double trigger and hammerless. Could someone tell me what year it was made?
You need to identify the make and model of the shotgun. Dozens of different makes of guns show a browning patent on the barrel. Recheck and re-ask the question - Thank you
next to the barrel
I have The New England Double barrel shotgun with 32 inch barrel single trigger and im looking for the same thing.
I believe that is a model 311. I have the same double barrel.
