Eastern Arms Co. was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. The guns were manufactured by Meriden Firearms, J. Stevens Arms, and others. How do you tell who manufactured the Ranger?

The Eastern Arms company was a trade name used By Sears and Roebucks. There may be a date stamped on the barrel as well. This would be the production date.Good Luck.

Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck in the first half of the 20th century. The guns were made by a variety of manufacturers in the US and Belgium.

Eastern Arms was a brand name sold by Sears Roebuck. The Model 1929 suggests that it was made by J. Stevens Arms Co.

No one, since the company only existed as a Sears Roebuck tradename. These guns were made by Meriden Fire Arms Co, J. Stevens Arms Co, Andrew Fyrberg & Co, Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works, and probably other manufacturers.

No. Very unlikely. sales@countrygunsmith.net

I can't find a cross-reference for that number, but Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. Most of the shotguns were made by Stevens/Savage.

I found Eastern Arms Co. as being made by Meriden Arms Co. owned by A. J. Aubrey. Eastern Arms were sold by Sears Roebuck & Co. Ken G - You are right and wrong. Meriden Arms did make guns with the Eastern Arms name, but the company was owned by Sears. A J Aubrey was an executive with another firearms manufacturer (Parker Brothers, I believe) that Sears hired to manage the company. The company only existed from 1905 or 1907 until 1915 or 1918 (different sources, different dates). I don't think a gun marked "Model 1929" was made by Meriden. I'm still looking for that model number by another manufacturer. There's a question about a WYCO Model 1929 down at the bottom of this page, too, and I suspect it is the same gun.

There are probably some Ranger and Eastern Arms models that are identical since Sears owned both tradenames, but there was no actual manufacturer named Eastern Arms. If any Ranger firearms were made between 1905 and 1915 they would have been manufactured by Meriden Firearms, but most of the later ones were made by Savage/Stevens.

Doubt it. Eastern Arms was a trade name and not an actual manufacturer. It is possible that some guns marked Eastern Arms Co were manufactured by Remington for Sears Roebuck.

That would be a Stevens 94B sold by Sears Roebuck.
