Where can you find information about Townley's American Boy shotguns?
American Boy: Trade name used on firearms retailed by the Townley Metal and Hardware Company of Kansas City, Missouri, c. 1900-1920.
There is a lot of Information on the Baker Gun & Forging Co. They started in 1890 and made shotguns up to 1923. They made several different grades of shotguns. I suggest that you go to a book store and find a book called "2008 standard catalogue of firearms 18 edition" in it you will find several different photos of shotguns and listing of the different grades. All of them are valuable. look on page…
Where can you find information about an early 1900s Montgomery Ward side by side shotgun with 30 inch damascus twist barrels and the serial 60346?

I can recommend three books, unfortunitly I not sure any of them are still in print. 1. The Best Shotguns Made in America by Michael McIntosh published by Charles Scribner's Sons New York 2. Sidelocks & Boxlocks by Geoffrey Boothroyd published by Sand Lake Press 3. The Golden Age of shotgunning by Bob Hinman published by Wolfe Publishing Co. Numbers 1 & 2 deal with American made guns and #3 with British made guns.
