Wanting any information regarding an American gun company 20 gauge stainless steel shotgun with hammers and a 24 inch barrel?

If you have an American Gun Company, New York then the gun is not stainless steel. It was made by Crescent Firearms Co. of Norwich, Conn and distributed by the H&D Folsom Co. They were produced with damascus barrels as well as fluid steel (solid) barrels of various lengths and chokes, with and without external hammers.

When was the shotgun made by eclypse gun co. The damascus double barrel with hammers?

Eclipse Gun Company is a name found on Belgian manufactured double barrels from around 1900-1916. The manufacturer was Henri Pieper. Please note that the Damascus barrels were meant for BLACK POWDER shotshells, and should not be fired with modern day ammo.

What is value of Sam Holt Arms 10 GA double barrel with outside hammers Has dog on side Belgian laminated steel barrels Breech loaded also have original ammo for it?

It would be most foolish to fire this gun. Laminated barrels are also called Damascan barrels and have been known to corrode and weaken where you can't see the damage. This was aggravated by the black powder shells in use at the time the gun was new. Modern smokeless powder has much higher pressures. The barrels can blow up. You are best to hang this gun on the wall and never use it again.

Where can you find information about a chrome Belgian 12 gauge laminated steel double barrel with Richard stamped by the hammers?

Your gun was made between 1880 and 1914, probably by Henri Pieper. If the name is actually Rickard (with a K instead of an H), it was probably retailed by J A Rickard Co of Schenectady, NY. Chrome and laminated barrels don't belong on the same gun. Except for a few custom-made shotguns, laminated barrels were not produced after the 1920s and chrome was not used until the 1940s. The plating was added after manufacture. I must have been short of sleep when I posted that. The finish is probably a nickel plating which would be appropriate for a firearm of this age.

What is the value of a 24 gauge WM Parkhurst double barrel shotgun made in Belgium with rabbit-ear hammers and Damascus barrels?

What is the age and value of a J Stevens model 250 12 gauge double barrel shotgun with with damascus barrels and outside hammers?

Does it say J. Stevens AND Co or J. Stevens ARMS & TOOL Co or J. Stevens ARMS Co? The first would have been made from 1865 to 1886, the second from 1886 to 1915, and the third from 1920 to about 1945 (unlikely if it has damascus barrels). Value is $100 - $300 depending on condition, but only as a mantle decoration. Damascus or twist barrels were fine when they were produced, but were not intended for modern smokeless ammunition. Even if they were proofed for smokeless powder circa 1900, today's smokeless is not the same and after a century the barrels have probably deteriorated.

You have a single shot crescent firearms shotgun marked No 15 what is the year of manufacture?

Can't be before 1892 or after 1931. If it is hammerless AND has fluid steel barrels, it is after 1903. Open hammers and/or damascus barrelled guns continued to be manufactured after that date also.

How do you find information on a J Stevens A and T Co shotgun?

The Standard Catalog of Firearms lists 67 different side by side models made by Stevens. Many of them had exposed hammers, either back-hammer boxlocks or sidelocks, and most were manufactured during the time "A&T" was included in the name (1886-1916). If your gun has twist or damascus barrels, it is basically a wallhanger. If it also has side hammers, then at least it is a wallhanger with some value - generally $125-$150. If it has fluid steel barrels, regardless of the hammers, it could still be a useable gun if approved by a qualified gunsmith. Value as a shooter would be $200-$250.

What is the age of an Empire Ejector shotgun that is a single barrel?

Empire Arms was a trade name sold by Sears Roebuck. If it has the Crescent name on it, it would date from about 1893 to 1930. If it has open hammers and damascus barrels, it is more likely to be an early gun. Hammerless guns and fluid steel barrels were introduced about 1907, but sidehammer guns were not discontinued.
