Hey folks,
Looking for any info you might have on "Williams Arms" of St Louis, MO.
In particular, looking for info on a 16 Guage single shot breakdown made under that company name. Only number found so far on the gun is 328IC

If you take off the forearm there most likely will be some more information. Most likely some proof marks and possibly a chamber, gauge and/or choke information. These are required markings on European shotguns.
The other possibility (and msot likely probability) is that this is a hardware or trade shotgun. A hardware gun is a firearm made by one company but sold by a middleman using the middleman's name (i.e. Sears with their Ted Williams brand, Montegomery Ward and Western Field etc).
