Rusty double barrel
« on: July 05, 2016, 01:37:03 PM »
This is the second gun that was left here Sunday. It is an American Gun Co. double 12 ga. Right now it is resting in the basement with Kroil being applied every little bit. So far, no movement of the barrels....

It was made by Crescent for H&D Folsom from 1892-1931

IIRC, Crescent made numerous guns that were branded by hardware stores, other gun companies, etc.

492 brand names I know of but they were owned by H&D Folsom.

I haven't paid a lot of attention to this gun as I have been occupied with other projects. But, the hammers are now free as are the triggers. Breech is still stuck.

As I said, I haven't paid much attention to this ol' gun lately as I am working on too many other things. But.....the breech/barrels are now operational. Still needing a good cleaning with oil and 0000 steel wool.
