Hi I was wondering if you could give me info about a old shot gun? I came across a old Shot gun that says H.S.B & CO chicago. It has a chicken on it. It also has a Stamped date that says Patented August 12, 1913. Thanks

Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett was a large hardware wholesale/retail operation located in Chicago, from about 1882 to 1962. Does it say RUSO under the chicken? This gun was probably made by Harrington and Richardson.

If it's a single shot it's about $50 maybe $75 A SxS is about $200- $250

Thanks it says RUSO inside of the chicken it's a single shot. Since it's not worth anything would be okay to clean it?

Josephine - Proper cleaning is always a good thing, even on rare and collectable guns. Just don't scrub the original finish off.

I have the same gun very dirty but hesitate to disassemble without a parts diagram, doe's anyone know the actual mfg. it looks like maybe Savage, Stevens, Crescent but not exactly to any of them. I would like to restore this one but again hesitant without a diagram.

RUSO was a Crescent tradename for HSB&Co., but that does not establish the maker of your gun.
Have you looked around here?

Both have been reported, BUT it appears that John is right and I stand corrected.

I found a 1916 Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co. Catalog No. 61
A search for RUSO gave nothing.
CRUSO was obviously a house brand (and one internet source said established c. 1902)

CRUSO and Rev-O-Noc house brand - no RUSO

Here are the CRUSO Crescent doubles

And the CRUSO single, which appears to be a J. Stevens No. 105 (which is not to say that earlier singles were not Crescents)
