Default Looking for info/parts for an old hammer double barrel

A friend recently found the barrels and lock for an old double barrel 12 gauge in a barn. It is missing the hammers and entire trigger assembly. I am happy to build a stock for the gun. But I am looking for the parts to complete this firearm. The only writing on the gun is "Genuine Armory Steel" down the right barrel, and "Choke Bored" down the left barrel. There is no other writing other than the serial number on the under side of the fore stock and in the breech.

Any and all information on this firearm would be appreciated and I would really love to fix this piece up and have it shine again. Thanks so much.

Caleb

First the mandatory admonishment

Now that THAT is out of the way- have you looked at the water table for markings? Open the shotgun, removing barrels from the action, turn over, and look at the flat part under the breech. You may need oblique lighting, and a magnifier.

Genuine Armory Steel was a mark used by Crescent Firearms, 1893-1930, and also by Meriden Fire Arms, 1905-1915. The phrase doesn't really mean anything except that the barrels are not laminated steel.

I doubt you'll find what you need at Numrich but is worth a look www.e-gunparts.com

I also doubt you'll ever know the maker.

Dixie Gunworks will probably be your best bet for parts. Dixie Gun Works muzzleloading, blackpowder and rare antique gun supplies.


Those barrels are possibly damascus and if it's a breech loader it's probably chambered for 2 1/2 inch shells.
