I have an American Gun Co. 410 shotgun #3013. I was wandering when it was made. This gun came from my father who got it from his father.

“American Gun Company” was one of the names used by Crescent Arms of Norwich, Conn., on it's trade brand-name guns (aka: store branded) - which were produced for many different retailers under many names from 1888 to 1931.

They were produced in quantity as an "economy" gun at the lowest prices available.

I would be leery of firing it with modern ammo before a qualified SxS gunsmith (not some parts changer) measures the chamber length (besides checking the frame/lockup, etc).

Many guns made at that time had chambers shorter than the current ammo.
