Eastern Arms Co. was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. The guns were manufactured by Meriden Firearms, J. Stevens Arms, and others. How do you tell who manufactured the Ranger?
The Sears Model 3T 22 rifle is a clone of the Winchester 190. Someone has posted a video to YouTube demonstrating the disassembly process. It can be found here...
There is a second video that demonstrates how to reassemble the weapon here...
This is really a Winchester model 1400.
Ranger was a Sears Roebuck trademark. The guns were manufactured by several makers. If you have a model number, you may be able to find it in cross-reference list.
If you're referring to the "Ranger 22 long" Pat. MCH 28. 71 May 27. 79
it may have been manufactured by E.L. Dickinson sometime between 1871 and 1879 although it is hard to say due to the fact that there is no manufacture name stamped on the gun. The serial number on one is 9119 so there were at least 9119 of these guns made. It is hard to find out how many of them are left due to the fact that they're about 129 years old.
Ranger was also a .22 caliber target rifle made from 1937 til' 1949 by Stevens Arms Co. It is the same as the model 416 Stevens target rifle.
The M-34 Ranger is a singleshot, cock-on-opening rifle. The forestock has finger grooves , chrome trigger, chrome bolt, metal butt plate. This rifle was made from 1932 - 1938 by Marlin.
Jack First Inc 1201 Turbine Dr. Rapid City SD 57703 605-343-9544 has an excellent 2 volume parts catalog that shows this model Over the years, the NRA has published books diagramming the parts of many different firearms. Their website is at www.nra.org/ . If you are a member, keep an eye on the ads in the magazine. They frequently list sources of NRA publications. Diagrams are available at www.histandard.info The J.C. Higgins is a High Standard Mod. 200 The High Standard model 200 appeared well after the High Standard manufactured J. C. Higgins Model 20 had evolved into the Model 21 and while there are some common parts, they are not the same shotgun. ANSWERhttp://www.e-gunparts.com/products.asp?chrMasterModel=0780z20&MC=
My cross-reference list says this is actually a Harrington & Richardson Model 120. Sears Roebuck sold firearms with the J.C. Higgins brand name from the 1940's into the 1960's or later.
H&R only produced the Model 120 during 1941 and 1942.
The Sears J. C. Higgins 583.14 was manufactured by The High Standard manufacturing Corp. in the later 1940's or early 1950's
Crosman made several different air rifles in the 1940's. Please state the model number and the current condition of the rifle. Is it still working? is it in Excellent, very good, good, fair or poor. Repost your question with this information so an estimate of value can be given.
My brother has a Ted Williams Model 200 12 gauge vari choke shot gun that was our dads. I asked about it at a local gun shop a few years back and was told at that time the gun was in average condition and was worth between 150 to 200 dollars . .
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.
No one has ever written a scholarly study of Sears Roebuck shotguns, and I doubt if anyone ever will. The Standard Catalog doesn't even mention them, Gun Trader's Guide lists about 6 models (not including any o/u doubles). If you know a model number, there are cross-reference lists that may tell who actually manufactured it. For value, find the cheapest new o/u at WalMart and figure 1/2 to 2/3 of it's list price. Some shotguns were made for Sears Roebuck under contract with Winchester. A superposed made in 1970 would probably have been made overseas, as American craftsmanship had priced itself out of the market but for the very rich. If it's Japanese made, Miroku or others, you've got a gem. (Check proof marks for kanji, etc.) If it's Spanish made, it's a pig in a poke; some really good guns come from there, but their metallurgy was suspect in the postwar period in the more economic varieties. If Italian made, another possible gem. Unlikely that the Turks were exporting o/u's in the 70s, though they make some good ones, and Russia was still Commie back then, so Sears Roebuck would probably have not been trading with them, though two barrel shotguns (side by side and o/u) were the only permissable firearm for tens of thousands of Igors in the Street. And they made a lot of them. Hunting was still a recognized activity under the commissars. An acquaintence of mine who took a duck hunting trip to the famed marshes of Mother Russia in the post-Munich days almost had his own guns taken away by German airport police during a stopover; disassembled double guns checked through by wealthy Americans evidently rang their anti-Arab alarms. He never could get over the irony that once behind the (fast rusting) Iron Curtain, nobody gave him a second glance crossing Red Square with a shotgun case in his hands. Kind of like it used to be in Amuricuh....
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).
If it is really mint (unfired, practically untouched since it was manufactured), it might bring over $200.
Excelsior double barrel shotguns were made by various Belgian manufacturers c. 1890 - 1914 and I doubt if you will ever be able to identify the exact maker. The crown over the oval ELG indicates it was proofed for black powder after 1893. Damascus is one form of laminated steel, usually considered the best of this type construction, so if it were truly damascus, it would probably be marked as such. 18.0 would be the gauge, I believe that would be a full-choked 12 ga barrel. I doubt if the word below Excelsior would be "Magnum." I don't think that term would have been used for shotgun loads in that time period. Is it possible that it is the remnant of "Machine Made?" The numbers that look like serial numbers MAY actually be serial numbers, but there are no records available that would allow us assign a date of manufacture from them. More likely they are batch numbers or part numbers which could appear on many different guns. The "*M" appearing on the barrels and action are probably assembly marks to indicate that these were "fitted" (parts were not fully interchangeable in those days) and the "Y" possibly the worker who did the final fitting.
The Ranger name was used by Sears Roebuck, apparently as early as the early 1900's and possibly as late as the 1960's. The guns were made by a variety of manufacturers. I have a list that cross-refrences Sears guns to the maker's model if you can locate any numbers on it. Most have model numbers with a decimal point in them, like 101.1601.
This 22 cal pistol was made by Crosman Co for Sears. It is a model 130, Mfg 1953-1970. To assess the value I need to know the condition of the pistol, is it excellent, good, fair, poor.
You can find the manual for the 130 on the Crosman web page see the link below
Eastern Arms was a Sears Roebuck trade name and the only reference I find listing a .38 revolver says they were made by Meriden Arms, which was a Sears subsidiary and in business only from c. 1905-1915. If your gun has grips marked Forhand Arms, I'd bet that the whole gun was made by that company and marked with the Sears name. That would agree with your estimate of the age as the Forehand name was used from 1890 to 1902. The only top-break .38 Revolver I find listed is the "Perfection Automatic" but my references disagree on the exact dates of production. The Standard Catalog of Firearms says 1898-1902 while The 1983 Official Price Guide says they were all made before 1899. The Standard Catalog suggests a value of $150 in NRA Very Good condition. I don't think the Eastern name would affect the value either way.
Your rifle was made by Marlin (their Model 101) for Sears. First produced in 1951, it has been discontinued. If yours does not have a serial number, it was made prior to the 1968 Gun Control Act.
Those later Model 24's are bringing around $250 in excellent condition.
50-100 or so
According to the the Blue Book of Gun Values 19th edition(which was published in 1998) your shotgun was manufactured by Winchester for sears and is a model 1200. The 100%(mint condition) value for a field model is listed as $220. The values rise slightly from there as the grades and options improve.
