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.


In a word, no. In two words, absolutely not. www.countrygunsmith.net



I don't really know but I have one that belonged to my great grandfather if you find out anything please post it here.


I happen to be in the same predicament. Its a double barrell nickel plated 12 guage made by T.B. Janney with Twist Belgium on the barrell. Any info...? colby.carter@hotmail



Is this shotgun manufactured with a twist steel barrel



It is a four digit number on the receiver under the right side barrel, open the gun and look deep on the receiver,



You may have some success at the shotgun world website, (shotgunworld.com) there is a vast network of collectors and shotgun experts there that may be able to help



There is no record that Husqvarna ever made a 10 ga shotgun.


I can say that the marking stevens Arms and Tool company was marked on stevens made firearms from 1886-1915.This time period would include your double barrel shotgun.As to value that would dpend on your shotgun having steel barrel or Damascus twist steel barrel(BLACKPOWDER ONLY).The ovreall condition would also be important.



Pieper was a Belgian gun maker, so it was most likely made in Belgium. Look for the Belgian black powder proof marks.


Not likely to find one. Serial numbers weren't required on long arms until 1969 and this gun was made by Anciens Etablissment Pieper around 1910.


The W.H.Hamilton 12 Guage shotgun is from the turn of the century. Look for either Damascus or Belgum Twist on the barrel to deermine the era. In good shape it may sell at auction from $200 + - all depending on the completeness and shape. Do not use with modern high velocity powders. Most sell for wall hangings for $150 in average shape.



About $100 or so. The damascus/twist steel barrels are generally considered unsafe to shoot with modern ammunition.



The Browning 2007 Product Catalog states that the A-Boltchambered for 25WSSM with a 22" barrel has a 1 in 10" rate of twist.

If it is a fully functional (have it checked by an experienced gunsmith) gun with fluid steel barrels, back hammers or hammerless, it should bring $200+ as a shooter. If it has side hammers and twist steel barrels, it's worth $125-$150 as a mantle decoration.


manufacturing turned toward internal hammers about 1870 just about the same time the transition from twist to fluid steel barrels appeared. keep in mind that side hammers still appeared on center fire shotguns using brass cased shotgun shells that first appeared about 1860. if it is a percussion cap shotgun its probably pre 1860.
