The marking is "Cruso", the 'c' is part of the rooster. Cruso is a brand used by Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett, a Chicago based wholesale hardware house. They sold products to local hardware retailers. The Cruso guns were contracted by HSB to companies like Crescent, Stevens, Savage, etc, who made inexpensive firearms, usually shotguns, for other companies. These guns should be inspected by a gunsmith before attempting to shoot them. Modern ammunition has hotter powder than these guns were made for which could make them dangerous to shoot.
HSB made a variety of objects with the Cruso name on them including padlocks, tools, tinware, livestock supplies, sporting goods, and the list goes on and on..
Other brands used by HSB are OVB (Our Very Best), Rev-O-Noc, True Value, Il-A-Noy, and others.
HSB products are somewhat collectible. thckk.org is a place to start.
what is the value of browning sweet 16 shot gun
Break open the action and it should be engraved on the metal that is normally unseen when the action is close, that or it should be on the barrel. If the chokes are removable then it should be engraved on those as well.

The Winchester model 1200 shotgun is a pump action shotgun.
You need to get it lettered by Browning.
AFAIK they never made a bolt action shotgun
your winchester model 1200 shotgun has a pump action.
No, the Mossberg 395 is a bolt action shotgun, NOT a semi-Automatic shotgun. It is a fine bolt action though.
This should be a Savage 18-D.
The Stevens 311 is a double barrel shotgun.
Not enough information to answer that question. Need to know the other markings.
Mossberg or Savage/Stevens? Any particular model? firstname.lastname@example.org
Providing serial number information has been published, you look it up.
