Where can you find information about a 410 single action shotgun marked HSB Co Ruso Chicago with a roster engraved around Ruso?
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…

It was never documented when Crescent Firearms made these single shot .410 gauge shotguns.It should be noted that these shotguns were made with a 12in.barrel.Under today,s laws these short barreled single shot shotguns are considered illegal if they were not registered with BATFE and be subject to seizure.
Newport was a Brand Name used by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co, Chicago (1882-1962) on shotguns made by Crescent Firearms (1983-1930) and J. Stevens Arms (1930-1948). If it is a singleshot, it may have been made by Iver Johnson. Perhaps the Chicago Library has some old advertising from HSB&Co that would identify a model "W", but very little detail published about these old hardware store guns.
What is the value of a 12 gauge HSB and Co double barrel shotgun with exposed hammers made of armory steel in great condition?
This is a Crescent Arms shotgun and if in very good condition with most of the case color on the receiver and blue on the barrels and tight with excellent barrels it is worth about $300. H.S.B.& Co. was an importer and distributor of shotguns for Crescent and that particular gun probably has a Rooster and is made in Chicago about 1900.

Nobel was a mfg co. in there own right from about 1952 or 53 to about 1971. They made semi-auto, lever action and slide action rifles and they also imported side by side shotguns. The SxS's seem to a good shootable gun just not very collectible. The 410's SxS seem to command the the hightest price. I have seen double 12's for as low as $250 and the 410's as high as $750. Don't know…

Most likely, yes. Essex was a trade name used by Crescent-Davis firearms Co on shotguns made for the Belknap Hardware Co of Louisville KY back in the 18 and 1900's. The term "Hardware guns" is derived from the Crescent Co, as they made guns for just about anybody, and would put any name on the gun if you ordered 10 or more.

The Newport name was used on firearms distributed by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co of Chicago. They may have been made by Crescent Fire Arms, WH Davenport Arms, Iver Johnson, Harrington & Richardson, or Stevens. Being a .410 would suggest manufacture sometime after WWI and I believe HSB&Co ended operations sometime in the 1960s. If you can supply us with all other markings on the gun, including any symbols found underneath the barrel, and send…

It is a Stevens Crackshot that was made for HSB&Co, a hardware distributer in Chicago. Evidently, Revonoc is Conover spelled backward. The HSB rifles usually had a better finish that the standard Stevens. I have seen both Crackshot, Marksman and Little Scout 22 &32 rifles with this name. Stevens also made rifles for Sears and Montgomery Wards and put their brand names on them.

All of them are valuable. look on page…
