I have an old single shot shotgun that has the word clipper on one side and right behind the trigger guard and the numbers 5198. I can't find any information on it. Thanks for the help.
I believe you're referring to HD Fulsom & Co.. I thought they imported those guns from Belgium and Spain.Many single shot shotguns were marketed under different names , but built by the same company and sold as inexpensive "store brand " guns in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Maybe this is the case with your shotgun.
Pictures would be a big help here...especially of any markings , dates , addresses etc...
