Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 2412


Ron: I have a single barrel 12 ga. shotgun with a 36" barrel, that breaks down into three pieces by snapping out the grip. It was previously left to me by my late uncle. The only identification on it is " Bay State Worchester, Mass.U.S.A." 12 Ga choke is enscribed on the upper part of the barrel, and A511174 is located behind the trigger. In your 744 you provide some information on a Bay State shotgun. Could you kindly provide me with information on the above shotgun as to your expected date of production & approx. value. I appreciate your assistance Wayne Taylor, Box 321, NIPAWIN, Sask. Canada


The Bay State Arms Company was located in Worcester MA c. 1880 to 1902.
