There's not much information available. Crescent made several million single and double barrel shotguns from 1883 to 1930. They marked them with at least 200 different trade names, Victor being one of the more common ones. Singles usually sell between $25 and $75, depending on condition, but they were only $3-$10 when they were new.

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.



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.

We just bought a Crescent Firearms 20 gauge single shot at an auction in Walterboro, SC (outside Charleston) for $95 and from what I understand, it's not worth any more than that in great shape. I've done some research online about it and looks as though you will only be able to get parts made by a good gunsmith. The parts are no longer available.


They were made by Crescent Firearms, and value would be under $100 even in excellent condition. sales@countrygunsmith.net



The Victor brand name has been used by many firearms manufacturers for a variety of guns, but your single-shot shotgun was most likely produced by Crescent Arms c. 1893-1920. As far as being a promo item, it wouldn't have been manufactured as such, but I suppose some business could have purchased a bunch and given them away, but I doubt it.


Crescent single shots will sell for around $100 in excellent condition. sales@countrygunsmith.net


Most old single shots sell between $35 and $75, depending on condition, but a .410 may bring a premium from the right buyer.

Crescent made millions of single shot shotguns marked with hundreds of different trade names from 1892 to 1931. There are no records available to determine the exact age of any particular gun. Value is minimal - $20 if it is busted or rusted, maybe $120 if it is almost unused.
