There were thousands of brands of shotgun out there, and some makers would put any name one wanted on their products. Never heard of this one.

Note, do yourself a favor and do not fire this until it's been checked out by a qualified smith. Old hammer guns almost always have Damascus bbls and short chambers, oft for the old and obsolete 2 1/2" shell.
Touching off a modern shell in one of these could be akin to holding a live grenade at arm's length and pulling the pin.

However, if all's well, this could be a nice piece for birds, clays or that Cowboy Action Shooting stuff.Use light loads and enjoy.
