I found Eastern Arms Co. as being made by Meriden Arms Co. owned by A. J. Aubrey. Eastern Arms were sold by Sears Roebuck & Co. Ken G - You are right and wrong. Meriden Arms did make guns with the Eastern Arms name, but the company was owned by Sears. A J Aubrey was an executive with another firearms manufacturer (Parker Brothers, I believe) that Sears hired to manage the company. The company only existed from 1905 or 1907 until 1915 or 1918 (different sources, different dates). I don't think a gun marked "Model 1929" was made by Meriden. I'm still looking for that model number by another manufacturer. There's a question about a WYCO Model 1929 down at the bottom of this page, too, and I suspect it is the same gun.

Eastern Arms was a brand name sold by Sears Roebuck. The Model 1929 suggests that it was made by J. Stevens Arms Co.

Depending on which parts, they may need to be made.

'1929' is going to be a patent date, not a model number. Eastern Arms Co was not an actual manufacturer, it was a brand name used by Sears on guns they marketed, generally made by the Stevens Arms Co. Value is strictly based on its usability as a shooter, and single-barrel 16ga shotguns will generally sell for less than $100. 1929 is a model number marked on Stevens/Springfield shotguns.

Eastern Arms was a Sears Roebuck tradename. The model 1929 was made by J. Stevens Arms, probably sometime between 1920 and 1945. Information about Stevens firearms may be available through John Callahan who is an independent arms historian. Per instructions on the Savage Arms website: Please send a detailed letter to: *John Callahan *53 Quarry Road *Westfield, MA 01085 Include: *Your name and address *A phone number where you can be contacted if necessary *The model and/or serial number if available *Any other pertinent information Mr. Callahan will respond with a letter detailing his services. I believe his fee is $15 for each gun researched.
