Royal Damascus was a mark used by Ancien Etablisment Pieper of Herstal, Belgium, c. 1890-1914. T Barker is usually dismissed as "just another Belgian clunker", but with a silver escution and engraving, yours is probably better than the average utility shotgun from the period. I have heard that T Barker was a hardware outlet in California, but have no proof of that.

Damascus is a type of steel used usually of older firearms and tools

A damascus barrel is a barrel made of damascus steel, which is steel produced by hammering two different steels together. The twist refers to the pieces of steel being twisted while they are hammered, which produces the distinctive pattern on the steel.

Damascus barrel (in French).

Most likely was imported from Belgium c. 1900-1910. "Nitro" refers to smokeless powder, so it would have been made after 1900. Damascus barrels would place it before WWI.

No. What would the company that produced the finest American double barrel shotgun want with a utilitarian import?

Damascus steel is made by folding a mild steel together with a high-carbon steel to make it stronger, and gives it a pretty pattern. Problem with Damascus barrels is that, while they work fine with low pressure black powder loads, modern smokeless shotshells are likely to cause the barrel to rupture, which is bad. If a shotgun has a Damascus barrel, it's very old and probably just a wall-hanger.

The use of damascus barrels on guns began to decrease pretty rapidly after 1900, although they were still fairly common up until the start of WWI. If you have a breech loading gun with damascus barrels it will probably date from 1875 - 1910. Most damascus barrels on U.S. guns seem to have actually made in Belgium. There is a lot of debate as to whether any damascus barrels for shotguns were actually made in the U.S. It seems likely there may have been small numbers produced in the U.S. However, Belgium had a large gunmaking trade at the time, with a lot of barrel makers specializing in damascus barrels, so it was generallly cheaper to import them than to make them.

Most of these guns were made with compressed steel which is similar to Damascus. The enterprise shotguns were Belgium. In good usable condition this should be worth about $150.00 to 250 USD.

KD stands for damascus barrel I do not know what the Y stands for. You should not fire the gun with a damascus barrel because it is weaker and might explode with modern shells

A Damascus twist steel double barrel shotgun is an antique shotgun made by layering iron and steel and welding them together. This kind of shotgun is worth approximately $3,000 depending on the condition of the weapon.

If you are asking about a Smith and Weson handgun in .40s&w caliber,then no these firearms do not have a damascus,or twist steel barrel.This type of barrel was only found on shotguns made from the time period of 1880-1910.

Damascus steel barrels can usually be recognized by visible (if the metal is bare) "twists" or striations. Do NOT fire a gun that has a Damascus steel barrel unless it has been proof tested by a qualified gunsmith. For that matter, do not fire any old firearm, Damascus steel or not, unless you are certain that the barrel can withstand the higher pressures of modern gunpowder. Safety first: take it to a qualified gunsmith if there's any doubt. See the following links for examples of Damascus steel barrels: http://www.peterdyson.co.uk/acatalog/ORIGINAL_DAMASCUS_BARRELS.html http://www.griffinhowe.com/damascus_twist.cfm
