Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok, thank you. That is helpful....

Etowah was a "trade name" shotgun or otherwise known as a "hardware gun". It was made by the W.H. Davenport Firearms Co. out of Norwich, Ct between (roughly) 1890 and 1910. These guns were sold under various trade names by local hardware stores and were designed to be simple, utility grade shotguns. Value is unfortunately low, in the $50 to $100 range at best.

I hope that this is helpful! If you don't have any other questions about this, please remember to complete a positive rating on your screen now so that we can close out the question.
