Re: Black Prince/Bridge Gun Company
The Bridge Firearms Co. was not a firearm manufacturer. The name was only a " Trade Name, or Store Brand " for the long gone Shapleigh Hardware Chain. They used this name on shotguns that they acquired from the lowest bidder. Some of the makers that are listed are Crescent, Stevens, H&R and various Belgium imports. They used the name Black Prince on single barrel shotguns they sold regardless of who the actual maker was ( think J C Higgins and Sears ). Value of these trade name shotguns is not high, maybe 100 dollars if in good shape.
