Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question
I have what is probably a Acme shotgun. 12 guage, single shot. All patent's are 1800's. Picture of an owl on the receiver & "wide Awake" imprint. Thumb screw @ breakdown had an engraving. Broken & lost. I think it was some kind of flower. I had a new one made. I would like to find a proper replacement. Do you recognize the description? Any info on the gun would be apprciated. Where can I find a picture of the engraving on the thumbscrew? Do you know what the "Wide Awake" may mean?
Acme Arms was a trade name used by J. Stevens Arms Company c. 1880. Wide Awake was a trade name used by Hood Firearms c. 1880.
