Don't have my books here, but years ago Baker Arms Mfg. and some other company's made guns for hdwe stores and other business with the name of the business's on it. You might have some of those.I'm going to be gone for 1.5 weeks but if you don't get any help here E-mail me and I'll see if I can help you when I get back.

Only thing I can add is to never fire modern shotgun shells in Damascus barrels. They are too powerful and could result in serious injuries.

I can only echo Rickster's warning. Those guns are only collectors items, or something to decorate the wall in the den. DO NOT TRY TO SHOOT THEM WITH MODERN AMMUNITION. Damascus barrels were made by welding strips of metal together. Far too weak for today's use. Plus they are old and metal has probably weakened with age. DON'T.
