    Anybody familiar with these shotguns or know where I could find some more information on them? Doubt they make replacement parts but worth a shot. Ran across this at an auction and it went for a good price, so I picked it up. Stock is in pretty rough shape with a few cracks. Finish is rough but not terrible. Wanted to try my hand at re-bluing and figured this was a decent candidate. Doubt it will ever be a shooter, but would make a cool mantle piece.

    Probably a Crescent Arms. You ordered 50 or 100 and they would put whatever name you wanted on it. Parts are not too hard to find.

    My Grandpa's HS&B is Crescent-made shotgun. These were often referred to as "hardware store" guns. The manufacturer applied the logo of the retailer, in this case, HS&B. In your case, Townley's.

    Good call. This definitely looks very similar to the Crescents that I appeared in my search. Looks like parts aren't too hard to come by either! Thanks for your help.
