Guns For Sale - MERIDEN FIREARMS -- Fine C&R Pre-WWI Vintage Aubrey 12 GA SXS Shotgun

Fine C&R Pre-WWI Vintage Aubrey 12 GA SXS Shotgun

The Meriden Firearms Company of

Meriden, Connecticut manufactured

small arms from 1905 to 1918. Meriden

made sidelock double-barrel hammer

and hammerless shotguns, single barrel shotguns, small revolvers and small bore rifles. The company was formed when Sears Roebuck purchased the Andrew Fyrberg & Sons firearms manufacturing plant and moved the plant and machinery to Meriden,

Connecticut in 1905. In 1904, Richard Sears (of Sears Roebuck & Co) bought Fyrberg's interest in the company and moved the machinists and machinery to the vacant Malleable Iron Co. building on North Colony St. in Meriden, Connecticut.

In 1904, Fred Biffar, head of the gun sales for Sears contacted A.J. Aubrey to design and produce a sidelock double barrel to be sold by Sears. In 1905 the Meriden Fire Arms Company was started to do just that. They produced the Aubrey design and used Aubrey's name on the guns as "Manufactured by the

Meriden Firearms Co." They eventually produced a variety of firearms (hammerless and hammer doubles, single barrel shotguns, revolvers (some under

Howard Arms Co.), and rifles) offering several grades,

The New Aubrey, and Meriden Field, Special, Tournament, and Diamond grade . Later Sears 'Trade Names' included Utica Special, Gibraltar, Challenge, Gladiator, and Berkshire. This specimen, SN12341, has 30" barrels and retains the great majority of its "damascus" finish. Stamped "THE AUBREY" on engraved sidelocks

and on the top barrel rib with the Meriden Firearms Co. address, This shotgun is in sound mechanical condition. There is some wear on the damascus finish and there are a couple of minor dark spots on the barrels near breech. The bores are VERY CLEAN with only a ring near breech from firing.The stock has an extremely narrow

, long wrist curving into the pistol grip (we have seen a number of these that have not survived without cracking or breaking) but this is sound. Nice factory hard rubber buttplate with Aubrey logo. A very nice early American turn of the century shotgun which competed favorably from the "big guys" down the street in Meriden - Parker Bros.
