Check the local yellow pages for Gunsmiths. One of them might have a parts-gun lying around that will have what you need or will be able to make simple parts like a hammer or firing pin. HS&B guns were made by several manufacturers, many of which are no longer in business, so there are no replacement parts readily available.

How do you find information on Hibbard Spencer Bartlett Co. that manufactured the Ruso 12 gauge double barrel shotgun? Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co. This leading hardware dealership was the descendant of a Chicago store called Tuttle, Hibbard & Co., which took that name in 1855 when William G. Hibbard became a partner. In 1865, Hibbard was joined by Franklin F. Spencer, and the enterprise was renamed Hibbard & Spencer. By 1867, the company's annual sales of hardware had reached $1 million. When longtime company employee A. C. Bartlett became a partner in 1882, the company's name became Hibbard, Spencer & Bartlett & Co. When Spencer died in 1890, the company was already among the leading wholesalers of hardware in the United States. In 1903, the year Hibbard died, the company opened a 10-story warehouse next to State Street Bridge in downtown Chicago. In 1932, the company introduced a new line of hand tools under the brand name "True Value." By 1948, Hibbard's annual sales reached nearly $30 million. Business slowed and profits were shrunk, however, as new hardware cooperatives began to bypass traditional wholesalers. In 1962, the company's owners, who wanted to move into the real-estate business, sold the hardware operations and the "True Value" brand to John Cotter for $2.5 million. See also True Value Hardware.

What Is The Age Of A Spencer Gun Company 16 Gauge Single Shot Break-action Shotgun With A Non-damascus Barrel. The Serial Under The Stock And Behind The Trigger Guard Reads B2397.?

Your Spencer Gun Co shotgun isa "Trade Brand Name" shotgun. That is a shotgun made by a major maker usually for a wholesaler or retailer who chose the name to go on the gun. In this case the gun was probably made by the Crescent Fire Arms Company of Norwich,CT (1892 to 1932) the largest maker ever of such guns. It was made for and sold at wholesale by the Hibbard Spencer Bartlett Co of Chicago, a large dealer in sporting goods. Best guess on a date would be sometime between 1910 and 1925.
