"King Nitro is a trade name used on "hardware" guns made by W.H. Davenport Firearms Co. on shotguns made for the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis Mo. as was the name "Central Arms Co.
Davenport was located in Providence RI from 1880 to 1882 and then in Norwich Ct. from 1890 to 1909.
Hopkins & Allen took over the company in 1901.".

Chambers may be 2 1/2 inch, and barrels may be Damascus steel.
Shooting is NOT recommended due to the lower quality and age of the guns.
These old guns were intended to be sold at the lowest possible price, often as the most basic farmers guns.
