Thankyou so much HRF for all your help. I have always owned guns, but as I am getting older I appreciate them more, escpecially the old ones. They may not be a valuable, but desirable is in the eye of the beholder! I think my husband is afraid I am desiring them too much! haha.
Some were no doubt brought to USA by immigrants, but they were probably cast aside and replaced by centerfire guns as imported pinfire shells became scarce.
To my knowledge no U.S companies ever made pinfire guns or ammo. The 1900 Sears catalog still offered empty pinfire shells for reloading, but no loaded shells:
