FOLSOM NEW AMERICAN GUNS
The H. & D. Folsom Arms Company, in producing their line of American made guns, have accomplished an enterprise which has been deemed an impossibility. It has always been supposed that cheap guns could not be made in this country because we cannot compete with cheap foreign labor, but this supposition has vanished. This company offers an American made line of guns which are practically interchangeable as to vital parts, etc., at prices as low as similar guns of foreign make. All these guns have the left barrels full taper choke bored and the right barrels are cylinder bore for good shooting. The lock parts are hardened, which makes them work more easily and last longer than soft parts. They are good sound guns throughout, and give universal satisfaction. The drawing shows the general style. They are made in 12 gauge, 30 or 32 inch barrel, weighing from 7 to 8 pounds. They have steel frames and are bored for nitro or black powder.
