Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 1194


For easter my uncle came down with a famly heirloom a "victor plain" 12 gage shotgun by the american gun co. new york. i am interested in finding how old it is and a good way to maintain its condition.


The Victor Plain American Gun Company shotguns were made by the Crescent Fire Arms Company c. 1892 to 1935. The Crescent Company was owned by the H. & D. Folsom Arms Company. To preserve yourgun wipe it down from time to time with a rag and Break Free Oil. This oil will not attack the finish adversly. If there is any surface rust you can rub lightly with 00 steel wool and the Break Free Oil.
