Customer Question
I want to figure...

I want to figure out the guage and age of a peerless model Crescent Arms shotgun serial # 224226

Expert's Assistant: The Firearms Appraiser will get you a firearm appraisal. Tell us what else you do know and the Firearms Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is a double barrel side by side with enclosed hammers and I think is a 12 guage

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Firearms Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I know of,, I would grade it as fair to good shape

Well, you could measure the gauge yourself using calipers, but the easiest way is to just take the gun to a gunsmith and ask him to measure it.

This website shows how to do the measurements, if you want to do it yourself. - https://goneoutdoors.com/calculate-shotgun-gauge-8167508.html

Now, as far as age, Crescent Arms' records have been lost to time, but we know that they were in business from 1892 to 1930.
