'Henry Arms Co' was a trade name used by the HD Folsom Arms Co in the very late 1800's through about 1910 or so. HD Folsom was the largest firearm distributor at the time, and marketed guns to various hardware store and mail order catalog chains throughout the country. They imported a huge number of utility shotguns from Belgium and they had the manufacturer stamp some very interesting trade names on them to increase their marketability. "HENRY ARMS CO" is one of those trade names, no doubt intended to make propective customers think of the Henry rifle - absolutely no connection other than the similar name. It was actually made by F.Dumoulin & Co, in Belgium. Value on these shotguns are strictly as decoration. They are not considered to be safe to shoot. The barrel construction was never designed for smokeless powder and using ANY modern ammunition would be dangerous. We routinely see them selling in the $150-$200 range if complete.

To determine the exact value of a 1892 Eclipse Meteor Belgium double barrel 20 gauge shotgun a number of factors would need to be taken into consideration. Most importantly, the condition of the shotgun.

@ 40" or so depending on LOP and Barrel length.

THis is not the name of the shotgun, but kind of barrel, made in Belgium. Acier means Steel, and Cockerill stands for "Cockerill-Sambre" the name of the steel maker.

I have a circa 1874 W.W. Greener double barrel shotgun. It was made in Birmingham England. It has double hammers with nice engraving. Greener shotguns are still produced today but in limited numbers.

Liege is the city in Belgium where it was made. Would need to know ALL the markings on the shotgun.

In order to answer your question correctly,I would need the maker of the shotgun,shotgun model,and type of shotgun we are talking about(pump action,single shot,semi-auto etc.) I would also need to know what type of barrel you have(plain barrel,solid matte rib,or vent rib barrel).also include the overall condition of your shotgun and amount of blueing remaining on the receiver and barrel.

This is a Auto-5 shotgun made by Fabrique Nationale in Belgium. This is a 12 guage shotgun made in 1930. The barrel should be stamped Browning Arms Co. Ogden Utah and or a combination of Ogden and St. Louis Mo. It will not have any scroll engraving on the receiver unless it is a gradeII or better. The standard grade was not engraved in that year.

about 150-200 if it has a nice petina and no rust, decent furniture, down to 35-50 as a wall hanger or lamp.

In Belgium between 1890 & 1914 as far as I can tell. Not much is known about the manufacturer.

The Browning Sweet 16 is a 16 gauge shotgun manufactured in Belgium. It uses a true 16 gauge barrel and as such is a wonderful shotgun. To a hunter this is a sweet weapon.
