Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 2506

Question:

I have a old dbl. barrel shot gun called the "Volunteer" by Blumenfeld co. Menphis,Tenn. It is a 12 Ga. 3" chamber. On the other side of the barrel is stamped "marixa" elbar maid in spain. It has a checkered stock and engraved metal on the body and the barrel. Can you tell me something about this shotgun and maybe what it is wroth.

Answer:

Marina was a Spanish made 6.35 mm Browning type automatic pistol made in Eibar by Gregorio Bolumburu. Volunteer shotguns were made by the Crescent Fire Arms Company and very well could have been sold by Blumenfeld Company in Tennessee. I have no idea why the Marina marking is on your shotgun.
