The wooden forearm is easily made, but if you need the metal part of the forend you are in for a tough time. We are one of the largest used parts dealers in the country and have not had a Crescent .410 forend iron in years. firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the Model, Serial Number and date of the Crescent Firearms shotgun which you want a value on?
Between 1894 and 1930.
Made by Crescent Firearms Co for HSB & Co.
Can't be before 1892 or after 1931. If it is hammerless AND has fluid steel barrels, it is after 1903. Open hammers and/or damascus barrelled guns continued to be manufactured after that date also.

From the 2002 Standard Catalog of Firearms: In 1905 Crescent's first hammerless sidelock was introduced as the American Gun Co. "Knickerbocker" Model No. 6. This very popular model became the Crescent "Peerless" No. 6 in 1922. In 1928 it became the Crescent "Empire" No. 60. and in 1931 the Crescent-Davis "New Empire" No. 88, "New Empire" No. 9, and "Empire" No. 9.

The New Victor Crescent Firearms Co 12 gauge, single shot shotgun is well suited for hunting small game and birds. The breech loading design is reliable and allows for quick reloading.
Crescent Firearms were manufactured from 1893 to 1930, but there are no factory records available to determine the exact year from a serial number.
Palmetto shot guns were made by Crescent Fire Arms Co. Crescent made firearms for many different companies and gun outlets. Crescent made a decent gun...............
The Crescent Arms "Empire Hammerless" double barrel (20 guage) is not a collectable gun, but is a "shooter". Thus, in shootable condition, it is worth about $200. That's what I paid for mine, strictly for bird hunting.
The only Crescent shotgun that I know of that was nickeled was the 20 guage, 14 inch barreled Knickerbocker. A shotgun with a barrel length of 18" or less requires a Class C license from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms. Assuming you are correct and it is a 12 guage, it was originally blued and parts should be available from http://www.gunpartscorp.com.
Various manufacturers, primarily Crescent Firearms and J. Stevens Arms.

What information would you want? Crescent made single shotguns from 1893 to 1930. If it has a large side hammer and damascus barrels, it would almost certainly be from before 1915. If it has fluid steel barrels and a center hammer (or is hammerless) then sometime after 1903.
