What is an American Gun Company 410 double barrel shotgun with exposed hammers worth?

American Gun Co. 410

This depends on the condition, but if it's broken, rusty, or just plain used, $50 or less. If it's in near mint condition, it could go up to $400. Most in "average" condition will go for $200-$250. If it were a larger gauge it would only bring about half as much, but 410's seem to be popular right now.

What is the value of a Winchester Model 94 cal 38-55 made in 1894?

The value of a Winchester Model 94 Value will depend on configuration and condition. Some are rifles with a 26" barrel and some are chambered for the 30/30 cartridge. There are also carbines (20" barrel) and trapper carbines (14-16" barrels), different magazine lengths, a variety of cartridges, deluxe models, etc.

If you have the most common, a standard sporting rifle, one of the most popular cartridges, and NRA Very Good condition (95% of the original finish and all original parts). For guns made before 1964, all models (rifle, carbine, trapper's carbine) are close to the same value for the basic gun without special features EXCEPT the "Eastern" carbines made without a saddle ring from 1940-1964, which are much less.

A very rough estimate for a 94 from the first year of production, with a serial number less than 14579, would be from a low of $2,000 for a beat-up, barely working gun to a high of $10,000 and up for a gun in excellent condition both for appearance and operation. A better reference for Retail Values of Winchesters and other guns is Schwing's STANDARD CATALOG OF FIREARMS. It has better layout, and more information, and it is easier to interpret and understand.

When I quote a value, I am quoting from one of the standard books, but books don't buy guns. The true value is the amount a willing seller will accept from a willing buyer. Of course, one reason a gun could bring more than the guide books suggest is some documented association with a famous person or event. If you can prove it once belonged to Buffalo Bill or one of the original Texas Rangers, there is no established value guide. Even a connection to a Texas law enforcement officer in the 1900-1930 period would add a significant amount.

Value is determined by a number of factors in addition to age, e.g., condition, documentation, etc. To get a reliable estimate of the value of your gun, see a professional appraiser. If you just want a basic estimate, buy yourself the current Blue Book of Gun Values. This is considered the most accurate source book for gun values. You will need to determine the condition. Look up the NRA Condition Grading Definitions For Antique Firearms. You can find these in a number of places. Try searching for "NRA Condition Grading Definitions For Antique Firearms" using the Google search form. Be realistic in your appraisal. Ultimately, though, value is subjective. Value is based on the worth to an individual collector. What's more, the sentimental value of the gun to you could be much higher than what a collector will pay for it.

Information on DM-22 cal 22 mag?

Davis Industries, California, began operations in 1982. Among other firearms, they made a .22 magnum derringer type pistol. In 1990, a safety recall was made on the derringer due to wear on a part. The firm was sued out of existence in 1998. The design continues in the Cobra brand derringers, and parts will interchange between the two.

What is the value of a Hopkins and Allen shotgun?

I hope someone answers this. I too have an old Hopkins & Allen 12 GA double barrel that I would like to know the value of. Someone told me that typically, the Hopkins & Allen brand was mostly a mail order product long ago. I've been told that as it was a mail order product, most likely there were a fair amount of these produced & the value probably was not substantial. I'm not a gun expert, but I have been to a fair amount of gun shows & thumbed through allot of gun books. I've never seen another Hopkins & Allen shotgun just like mine. I've seen a few that were similar, but not the same. One interesting thing on my shotgun is that every mating part has the serial # stamped on it. (a 4 digit #) I really like my old Hopkins & Allen, it has the external hammers to fire it. One of the hammers does not lock correctly, you have to pull the trigger forward for that hammer to get it to lock. I think a spring completes that task inside the gun normally, but mine has a broken one. The other hammer works correctly though. I used to use the gun a lot partridge hunting years ago & did some trap shooting with it too. I believe mine belonged to my great grandfather & when I'm done with it, I will hand it down to my boy. I won't part with it.

American Gun Co 12 gauge double barrel?

The American Gun Company was the "house brand" of H&D Folsom Sporting Goods, New York City, c. 1895-1930. The guns were manufactured by Crescent Arms, Norwich, Connecticut. Their single barrel shotguns sold for less than $10 when new. Their double barrel shotguns sold for $10-$15 when new. Old trade-name shotguns are not generally collected and not safe with modern ammunition, so are valued solely as a mantle ornament. The value of these guns if they are broken, badly worn, or rusty is less than $50. In like-new condition, it might be over $200. In "average" condition, it would probably be about $125.

Used value ruger p90?

300 USD

Gun values are increasing each year. While this is not a collector pistol, it is becoming more difficult to find. It is a very accurate and dependable pistol with excellent customer support and parts availability. A P90, stainless, 2 mags, owner manual and box in very good condition is worth approximately $400.00 (2012). Additional accessories can increase the price, as well as, how much you desire the pistol. They are keepers even if they are somewhat ugly.

What is the history of a 10 gauge double barrel 10 gauge shotgun with hammers and percussion nipples stamped Genuine Laminated Steel on the barrels and T Parker New York on the left lock plate?

T. Parker is usually dismissed as "just another Belgian clunker," but I am beginning to think that is only because of the similiarity to a brand name (T. Barker) used by Sears on inexpensive imported shotguns c 1900.

A muzzle-loading percussion gun would have been made at least 40 years earlier. It is still probably a very utilitarian (keep the fox out of the henhouse) shotgun that will not attract collectors and is worth whatever a yuppie will pay for a mantle decoration.

I can't give you any information except that the type of gun would have been manufactured between the 1830's when the percussion cap was developed and about 1870 when breech loading shotguns had been available for about 10 years.

I would be interested in learning any additional information you may find.

If it opens to insert a shell, it's not percussion. It will be one of the inexpensive guns imported around 1900 by the thousands. Not collected unless in like-new condition, no value as a shooter. I've heard that the "decorator value" has fallen in the last few years, but might bring $150 + from a yuppie with a western theme (a couple of restaurant chains have one hanging in every location).

How do you find information on WH Davenport shotguns?

There's not a lot of information available and most authors disagree on that. Carey's American Firearms Makers says the company was in Norwich Ct from 1855 to 1894 and made single shot percussion and metallic cartridge rifles. Vorisek's Shotgun Markings lists 4 different names, W.H. Davenport Firearms Company, W.H. Davenport Arms Company, Davenport Arms Company, and W.H. Davenport & Co., and gives dates from 1878 to 1910. The Standard Catalog says they made single barrel shotguns from 1880 to 1915 and single shot rifles from 1891 to 1910. Traister's Antique Guns says they made single shot and double barrel shotguns in Providence, RI. The Official Price Guide to Antique and Modern Firearms says single and double shotguns in Providence, 1880-1883, and Norwich, 1890-1900.

What is the value of a 12 gauge single shot shotgun marked 408633 - Victor Plain - American Gun Co. New York?

Here's a link to an American Rifleman article http://www.briley.com/grampa.html

It is primarily about double barrel shotguns, but it also applies to your Victor Singleshot.

It was manufactured by Crescent Arms, Norwich, CT, and retailed by H & D Folsom Sporting Goods of New York City. Serial numbers don't help much on these - no one has ever tried to determine the method Crescent used to assign them or research original records (probably none exist) - but it would have been made somewhere between 1893 and 1932.

How old is a Stevens Pocket Rifle?

Looking at the possibilities. There are several Stevens Pocket Rifles, most of them available in .22 caliber with an 18" barrel. Dates of production overlap with the earliest starting in 1872 and latest ending 1916. Company name will only show if it is before or after 1886 ("Arms & Tool" added that year). I think you need to get a copy of Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms and compare your gun to the pictures and descriptions.
