    Hey guys stopped by my local pawn shop and for some reason couldn't pass on these. I know there not hidden treasures but $130 I couldn't pass on them. 12 g is a marlin model 200 in great shape, clean, no marks or scratches on wood or metal. The 410 is a Newport, its ruff I'm going to sand and restain the wood, metal needs a good cleaning. I plan on giving the 410 to my son he's 13 and has two .22 rifles and I think he will really enjoy this. I never heard of Newport firearms any info would be great. Thanks

    71,

    Is the Newport good an tight! I has obviously seen some use! But both for $130 not a bad deal and either would make a good first shotgun for a youngster!. How are the bores in them?

    The 12 g has a clean bore
    The 410 has some play side to side on the fore end the break opens and closes clean. The in side is filthy and grimy needs some love. I think it will be great for my son .

    This trade name was apparently owned by Hibbard Spencer and Bartlett Hardware of Chicago, and the guns were made by the current low bidder. It seems that they were made by Crescent Firearms (Folsom subsidiary), J. Stevens Arms Co (division of Savage), and Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works and possibly others. You may be able to determine who manufactured it by looking at single shots by these companies and trying to match all the little details.

    It looks exactly like a New England Arms 410 I had several years ago.

    I shop at pawn shops all the time. You can find some fantastic deals if your just willing to haggle with the clerk and allow them to make a profit. I get a lot of my guns and guitars from pawn shops.
