Our Assessment: The Crescent Fire Arms Company is alleged to have manufactured over 100 different “house brand” shotguns in addition to their own label. After several changes of ownership, it was last owned by Savage Arms Co. This is an example of a “pot” shotgun, most likely used for small game and pest control. It could still fulfill this mission, if you choose.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be transferred in California, and is C&R eligible.
