A friend has an old shotgun with Texas Ranger inscribed on it. I have contacted the Texas Rangers and they said it isn't one of theirs. Does anyone know of a texas ranger manufacturer of shotguns? Thanks, Bonnie

I also have a texas ranger shotgun,it belonged to my grandfather. It's thought to be from the early 1800's.
There are no serial no. that I have been able to find.

"long tom" as It's been called, is all I know of this weapon. I would be glad also to know any thing about this single shot 3 foot plus long barrel weapon of history.

Merlin - When you get lemons, make lemonade, and when given obsolete military single-shot rifles, make sporting shotguns. The ELG in an oval indicates it was made in Belgium prior to 1893 (unless there is a crown over the oval, then it was made sometime later), and approved for black powder ammunition. Many of these conversions were only marginally safe when made and should never be used with modern shells.

Your father's shotgun should be priceless to you, but a lot of dealers would have offered even less than $50. Dealers sell nearly-new utility singleshots in my neighborhood for only $80-$100. There are very few collectors who would be interested in your gun unless it was absolutely like-new and unfired. A shooter (if you can find one who wants a singleshot) would prefer a newer gun at about the same price. If you wanted to sell, your best buyer would be someone who just wanted to hang an old gun over the fireplace as a decoration. They usually prefer open-hammer doubles, but the extra-long barrel of the Long Tom might attract a decorator, but even they will expect it to be inexpensive.

Samson - Is it actually marked "Long Tom" or do you just call it that because of it's length? Long Tom was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck on shotguns made by J. Stevens Arms Co, c. 1920-1948. I have no reference listing the Avery Metal Works.

Dad also has a nickel plated pistol that my G-Uncle owned that has a date stamp of I think 1888 or 1889. Unfortunately, I can't remember the details about the pistol.

A single shot Long Tom would probably bring $75 if complete and functional. Can't help with the pistol without those details.

"Ranger" is usually associated with firearms sold by Sears, mostly made by J. Stevens Arms & Cycle Co, c. 1900-1930. "Cowboy Ranger" and "Alamo Ranger" are cheap imported Colt-wannabee revolvers. But I can't find any shotguns marked "Texas Ranger".
Korey, if your gun is marked "Long Tom", then it is a Stevens-made, Sears-sold gun. But a lot of people call any shotgun over 32" a Long Tom. And if the gun is from early 1800, it would be a flintlock and pre-date the formation of the Texas Rangers.

Probably sold by Montgomery Ward in the 1950's, but without any more information can't say that with any certainty. If you will post all the markings found on the gun, I may be able to identify the actual manufacturer and approximate time period.

I can't find Little Jewel in any of my lists, but most of these trade-named shotguns from Belgium were imported c. 1900. Very few would have been after the start of WWI. Their value is primarily as a mantle decoration. A 410 usually sells higher than a 12 or 16 guage in similar condition. Could be as little as $60 if it is broken/abused/rusted or as much as $400 if in pristine condition, but $150-200 should buy most.

I just recieved a Texas Ranger shot gun from my grandfather, who recieved it from his uncle, who would be about 90 years old. It is a 16 gauge single shot 36 in. barrel. I fired it yesterday for the first time and it operated flawlessly. There a some numbers where the barrel lies that are stamped and read 397.

Savage took over Stevens about 1926 but continued to use the Stevens name until the early 1940's. I can't find a model 1915 under either Stevens or Savage. Are there any additional markings? Is it a lever-action repeater (if it is what type of magazine does it have), or a single shot (AKA falling block action)?

I have a Stevens Model 1915, like yours but without the Savage Logo on the barrel. My father told me he received it for his 12th birthday in 1923. What is your Serial Number, mine is 115.

Sears sold a lot of .22 rifles from the late 19th century up to the 1970's. Give us a clue which one yours might be and we can help. But I'll guarantee it isn't worth much.

Meriden (not Meridian) Arms Co. was a subsidiary of Sears about 1905-1917. Their guns are about like all the Crescent, Davenport, and inexpensive imported Belgian shotguns from that era. They were utilitarian and "worked as designed", but there are many guns and few collectors. Even fewer sportsmen will be using a 100-year old firearm which was not designed for modern ammunition. Unless it is in like-new (original, not refinished) condition, it is worth less than $200 and if broken or badly worn/bruised then less than $100.

I have a Forehand 32 cal. top break pistol. I have never fired it and I would like to get it usable again. The cylinder does not automatically line-up with the barrel when the hammer is cocked back. However, the cylinder seems to line-up between pulls of the trigger. Does anyone know who can rebuild this or maybe have spare parts.

Not the exact year. I don't know of any resource that give production data for H&A. The company was founded in 1867, but didn't make shotguns until about 1887 according to the Blue Book. Company was sold in 1915, so that narrows it down to a 28 year range.

Are you sure this is a shotgun? 38 Caliber Center-Fire is not a shotgun cartridge and I find no listings for a shotgun named XL (IXL and XLCR are listed). However, this name was used by the Hopkins and Allen Company on pocket revolvers. One of these might retail for $200 in NRA Excellent condition or $50 as a parts gun.

If it says shotgun on the designation, is it possibly a smoothbore pistol? Such things were made for rodent control in populated areas .38 Cal centerfire? .38 S&W? The British round? Or .38 Spl? Or .38 Colt for that matter. Perhaps the orignal posting was literal: .38 shot gun?

I think you're on the trail, Bill. Weren't the old shot versions of the .32, .38 and .44 cartridges called "XL"? Quite possibly a smoothbore Favorite or Ideal, but I would expect Amanda should be able to find the Stevens name stamped on the barrel if it is one of these.

Doug - At least 8 different manufacturers have used some form of the name "Columbia". If name marked is only Columbia, are there patent dates in 1891 and/or 1902 also stamped on the receiver? If so, you have a product of Davenport Arms made sometime after that date and before 1915. If these dates are not marked, the gun was probably imported from Belgium c. 1880-1914. If it says The Columbia, Columbia Arms Co, or anything more, please repost with the complete name.

To whom it may concern,

I have a shotgun marked RANGER "PAT. APRIL 1915" It's a hammerless 23 3/4 inch double barrel, in excellent condition with what appears to be a stock made of cherry.

Since there are no serial #'s on it, and with no other manufacturing markings, it's difficult to ascertain it's worth. Can you please assist me in what the value of it may be?

Any help or consideration would be greatly appreciated.

Central Arms was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hdwe of St Louis. The guns were manufactured by a variety of makers; Davenport, Crescent, Stevens/Savage, and probably others. Your best chance of finding a replacement is to take the remnants of your stock to a gunshow and look for something similar on the parts tables.

Spanish guns will have several proof marks. Some of them identify the maker, some the year of manufacture, and some indicate a range of dates when it was proofed. I don't have any ready references for these marks, but you can probably find some information by doing an internet search for "Spanish proof marks" or "Spanish gun codes", or "Spanish manufacturer codes".

With no more description, I'd say you probably have a Belgian-made utility grade shotgun imported around 1900. Wouldn't be something you would want to shoot, probably was designed for black powder loads and has laminated barrels and short chambers. Value will be determined by how well it looks over the fireplace, usually in the $125-$150 range.

Any gunsmith should be able to find or make a firing pin. As for value, everything has some value to someone, but you haven't told us enough to determine for sure what you have or what condition it is in (other than the broken or missing firing pin). My crystal ball says you have a well-used single-shot break-action shotgun. If that's right, it will probably be worth about $50-75 retail after it is repaired.

The latest edition of the Blue Book says ERA was a 'previous manufacturer', so they must have recently closed up. Their guns were inexpensive, but dependable. Value is shown as $165 for a gun retaining 100% of it's original finish, but that sounds awfully low for any useable double barrel gun. I doubt if any dealer would price one that low unless it was in pretty sad shape, and a 410 in NRA Excellent condition would be at least twice that figure.

I inherited a double barrel open hammer 12 guage shotgun with the markings " Buckingham Arms Co., New York" with "laminated steel" and "choked bored" imprinted on the barrel.It is obviously used, but in good condition. Can it safely be used with modern loads and does it have any value beyond a fireplace decoration?
Thank You,
Jerry

I have a very old single barrel shot gun at least 100 years old. All i can read on it is shootmoxe. I was wondering if anybody knew who made it etc. My father-in-law got it used when he was 12, and if he was alive noe he would be 114. Larry Burnett

Michael - This gun would have been made by Crescent Arms of Meriden, CT, and distributed by Folsom Arms of New York. Crescent made firearms from 1892 to about 1930, but side hammers indicate it was probably made prior to 1914. Value would be primarily as a mantle decoration, $100-$250, depending on just how good it looks on the wall.
