Best Answer

Diamond Arms Company and Nitro King are both trade name used by the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Some of the guns were imported from various Belgian sources, but they were also made by W.H.Davenport Firearms Co (1890's - ), Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works (early 1900's - ), J. Stevens Arms (before 1942), and Savage Arms. If there is an oval with ELG* stamped on the barrel or action, it is from Belgium, but being a 410 makes that unlikely. That also eliminates Davenport as the maker.

Where can you find information about a King Nitro shotgun by Central Arms Co?

Both 'King Nitro' and 'Central Arms Co' are trademarks of the Shapleigh Hardware Co, which was a major catalog retailer from the late 1800's well into the 20th century. The shotguns marketed under that name were made for Shapleigh by different companies, notably Davenport Firearms, Crescent, Hopkins & Allen, and Stevens. We'd have to see the shotgun to determine which manufacturer actually made the shotgun. www.countrygunsmith.net

What is the value of a Shapleigh's King Nitro dbl barrel shotgun with serial number 5000?

"5000" is the Stevens model number, not a serial number. It was marked with the trade name for Shapleigh Hardware in St Louis around 1930. Value as either a decoration or a shooter would be $150-$250. A little more if like-new and a lot less if a basket-case.


Who was the manufacturer of a double barrel shotgun with a windmill and the word nitro etched into barrel?

I HAD AN OLD GUN SIMILAR TO THE ONE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND IT WAS MANUFACTURED BY A COMPANY CALLED SHAPLEIGH IF MY MEMOERY SERVES ME CORRECT Is it a windmill or possibly the Perone, an oblisk similar to the Washington Monument? That would be a Belgian proofmark. Shapleigh was a hardware wholesale/retail business that had its tradename guns manufactured by several manufacturers. "Nitro" would indicate the gun could safely fire the smokeless or white powder which was developed around 1900.
