Where can you find information about a Belgian Pieper Breech shotgun from 1890?
Henri Pieper was a Belgian gunmaker operating between the late 1860's and his death around 1898. By the time of his death he had grown his gunmaking firm to quite a large size. The company was re-organised after his death by his heirs (family). It went into receivership again and was refiananced around 1906 and continued until the firm was wound up in the early 1950's. The company names are variations using the family name Pieper and the guns most closely identified with the firm are pistols that are marked with the trade name Bayard, although they also made shotguns and rifles. I happen to own a very high grade Pieper shotgun made around 1903 with fantastic leaf & vine engraving, along with several others shotguns by Pieper. Best source of information on all the various Pieper companies is a website www.littlegun.be Hope this has been helpful

%FOLLOWUPS% Not a lot of information. It was a trade name retailed (I believe) by H&D Folsom of New York City. The guns were made by Crescent, Crescent-Davis, and/or Stevens c…. 1890-1940.
the value of a 1948 Stevens double barrel shotgun 16 gauge. Hammerless.
Parker shotgun Does the gun say "Thos Parker" or "Fine Twist" on it? If so it is most likely an import from Belgium made by Henri Piper. Most I have seen have been dated to a…round 1880-1900. These were inexpensive catalog guns. You would surprised how many of these guns still are around today. I have seen the values of these guns run from $200 to $400. It is very hard to find a lot of info on this piece. Perhaps if you search under Henri Piper you will have better luck. There is a book called "The Parker Story" Published by "The Parker Joint Venture Group" that will tell you everything you ever want to know about Parker Shotguns. It will however, set you back about $150.00.
Where can you find information about an old shotgun marked with Cannon Breech on the barrel and nothing else?
\nTry googling it. I believe you will be surprised.
Answer . What information are you looking for? Age and value perhaps? Winchester made a small pump action .22 marked 1890 from 1890 to 1906. The price guides list them f…rom $200 to $600, depending on condition. But other manufacturers may have used the same designation since you can't copyright a number. Or do you have a rifle (most likely military) marked with this date on the receiver or barrel? More description could get a better answer.

Where can you find information about a 32 gauge Acier Bayard double barrel hammer shotgun serial 96237 stamped with a mounted knight Demi Bloc made in Belgium and Anc Etabl Pieper Herstal Belgique?
Answer . You read most of the information available right there on the gun. "Acier" just means "Steel" in French. Bayard, the mounted knight, and Demi Bloc are trademark…s of the manufacturer, Anciens Etablissments Pieper (1905-1957) in Herstal, Belgium. The 32 gauge shell had a diameter of .501 and length of 2.5 inches. 3 inch shells were also available but few guns were chambered for this length and no 32 gauge shells are available in the US. They may still be found in Europe, but will probably be called 14 MM instead of 32 gauge.
Answer . \nYou will have to carefully note exactly how the gun is marked, first.

Answer . \nBy and large, the Belgian shotguns are lumped together under the term JABC (Just Another Belgian Clunker). They were imported and sold through hardware catalog…s.\n. \nThere ARE some examples of fine Belgian gunmakers. You might take your gun into a gunsmith for evaluation, but dont get your hopes up.
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.
Probably made somewhere between 1870 - 1910. If you were to tell everyone it was made around 1900 you wouldn't be far off either way.
