Hartford Firearms Company: Trade name used by the H. & D. Folsom Arms on shotguns made for the Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, MO, around 1900. Look for proofmarks, specifically an oval around the letters ELG, on the barrels or action. You may have to remove the barrels to find it. This will indicate Belgian manufacture. If no proofs are found it was made by Folsom's subsidiary, Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT. Your grandfather's gun should be priceless to you, but unfortunately, the rest of the world does not value it as highly. Maybe that's a good thing - less temptation to part with a piece of family history. If complete and functioning, a single shot would bring $50-$75 or a double barrel $125-$150.

What year was Marlin Model 782 serial number 21618639 made?

That gun was most likely manufactured in 1979. Marlin firearms manufactured between 1946 and 1968 have a letter that precedes the serial number. Firearms manufactured between 1969 and 1972 are dated by the first two numbers in the serial number. i.e. 1969 firearms begin with 69, 1970 with 70, etc. After 1972 you must subtract the first two digits of the serial number from 100. In your case, the serial number begins with 21. 100 - 21 = 79. Or, 1979. You can get more details here: http://www.gundealersonline.com/firearmID_Marlin.asp

What are the steps to get a federal firearms license?

Before a FFL is issued as a Dealer or Manufacturer, you must be in compliance with state and local laws. You will need a business license, and a location that is zoned to permit a business to operate. These are not required for a Collector's FFL. You then apply to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for your license. You will need to submit the application, a Certification of Compliance document (citizenship) fingerprint cards, two passport type photos, and payment for the license. You can find details and forms at the ATF website. You must be 21 years old.


How do you make a gun?

First, you need to make sure it is legal in your jurisdiction. US federal law allows building firearms for personal use without a license with the exception of firearms covered by the NFA. These would be mostly fully-automatic firearms, short barrel rifles and short barrel shotguns. Check with the ATF for details. Making NFA firearms and any firearms for the purpose of sale requires a federal license. State laws may have additional restrictions. Manufacture of firearms from scratch requires proper tooling, machinist skills, at least a basic knowledge of metals, some woodworking ability, and good firearms knowledge. Metallic ammunition reloading experience is a major plus. Firearms work with extremely high gas pressure. We are talking tens of thousands of pounds per square inch. A mistake can result in a catastrophic failure and severe injury. In short, if you don't know precisely what you are doing you'll shoot your eye out, kid. Or, blow off a finger or two. An additional thing to keep in mind is that if you are making a self-loading gun, certain kinds of mistakes in design and/or execution of your project can result in something that can be legally recognized as a machine gun. Aside from being unsafe, building a machine gun without a license and ATF approval can get you some very real jail time, even in the US. A safer way to go would be to build one from ready made components. In US this is very popular with M1911 pistols and AR-15 family of rifles. They require hand tools and patience to put together. In the worst case scenario you will wind up with a poorly functioning gun, but not with one that blows up. Keep in mind that a bare receiver or pistol frame is considered a firearm in the eyes of US law and their sale has the same requirements and restrictions as a complete gun. There are also kits for making muzzle-loading firearms to be used with black powder. They are generally simpler than a more modern gun and could be a good way to acquire skills for more complex builds. The actual building process is far beyond the scope of this website.

Do you have any information on early 1700 German Jaeger rifle's. Who or what websites should I be looking for.?

The best singe resource I know of for Jaegers is "Jaeger rifles" by George Shumway, It includes the collected articles of author and historian George Shumway from his study of the Germanic Jaeger rifle. The original articles were published over a four year period in the magazine Muzzle Blasts. Arms are grouped based on their place of manufacture to facilitate the study of common details. Most illustrated firearms date from the 18th century, with a few from the last decades of the 17th. Particular attention is paid to the artistic styles, including Mannerist, Baroque, Rococo and Neo-Classical, with which these beautiful firearms were decorated. Hundreds of illustrations, including multiple views of most firearms. Also try http://www.flintlocks.de/en/content.htm there is some history and many photos of early Jaegers among others.
