I just purchased a 410 ga double barrel made by Eastern Arms Company Serial # T27658. I would like to know when it was built If you know anything about the gun or the company please e-mail me at [email protected] THANKS, Barry
Marland S. is one of the kindest and most generous of moderators with his time and his absolutely encyclopedic knowledge of old shotguns. He is busy with a farming operation (harvest time just now), yet he takes the time to answer these ID questions even when they are posted in the wrong forum. Read down the index a bit and you'll see a nice, clear title: "Gun ID and Value." Personally, I think Shotgunworld is amazingly lucky to have Marland S., while you, sir, have not shown that you're willing to contribute anything except some sarcasm and foul language. Kindly reconsider.
It's just that it's bad etiquette to post an email for an answer rather than taking the time to check back on the forum. You might be new to forums and didn't understand this. MarlandS has answered over 1,300 questions like yours...out of kindness.
He also answered your question and a 'Thanks' would have been more appropriate. A sincere apology and all will be forgiven.
I have recently found an Eastern Arms Company single shot 12-gauge shotgun in my great aunts old home (she has past away). There are no serial numbers on it. The only # stamped on the shotgun is a (21). I am interested in finding out possible dates but I am having trouble doing so. If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
just for fun I also found an old "magic elixer" bootle that I have had dated back to 1897.
