I was wondering if anyone knows how much this gun might be worth? and if you might know how old this gun might be?
i've been able to find 2 examples both where under $100.
Palmetto was a trade name used by Edward K Tryon of Philadelphia on lower grade revolvers and shotguns sold thru hardware stores, c.1880 - 1914.
I too, have an old double barrel, twin ear, twin trigger, 10-12 ga made by Palmetto Arms, Phil. Pa. Need for someone to give me some info on when gun may have been made as well as some history of the Palmetto Arms Co, circa 1860 - ?
Depending on the barrel anywhere from $500.00 up tp $30,000.00. The barell is the key. if it was a chrome plated steel bbl it's worth about $500.00 max. If the bbl is of Nappell steel it's worth big bucks. Most of these 12 ga were made of the chrome steel. I have never seen one over $500.00.
I hate to jump in but i also have this shotgun and was wondering what is Nappell steel i cant find any info or any way to find out the diff.
DO YOU HAVE A COLT 1878
Did you get any results for your question? I am looking for a latchlock spring for a 12ga dbl s/n 20663. I really do not know how to go about finding anything about the gun or manufacturer.
