I have a cute little sidelock SxS 410 marked Crescent-Davis. As far as I know, this was put on guns made by Savage in the early '30s. Apparently, Crescent guns were made by Folsom(?), who was swallowed up by Savage around 1930. There is a Davis-Warner in there someplace, too. Does anyone out there have a good reference for Savage and/or Crescent? Thanks!

Crescent was in business from before 1900 to sometime in the 30's, I believe. They imported guns as well as manufacturing. a lot of them were contract guns, pay them X amount for 1000 and they'd put your business name on them. My partner has a Crescent SxS with a Cleveland Hardware store name on it. Decent utilitarian "Everyman" pieces......Buck 8) :wink:
