Minnesota Arms Shotgun

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

A single barrel shotgun manufactured for the Minnesota Arms Co. The gun was probably made by Crescent Fire Arms Co. of Norwich, Connecticut, which manufactured firearms for retailers and distributors under private labels. The break-action shotgun has an exposed hammer, a walnut two-piece pistol grip stock, a black hard rubber butt plate, and a bead foresight. Probably made in the 1920s.
