I just received a Ranger double barrel 12ga and I am trying to find out some info on it. The only markings on the gun are Ranger, patten pending and proof steel it has a single gold trigger. I will post some pics later after I get power back. Until then can anyone help me out? I'm looking for who made it, where the serial number is and a ball park on price for insurance not sale. Thanks ahead of time.

Ranger shotguns were made for Sears & Roebuck. Some were made by the Savage- Stevens Co. and others were made by the Hunter Arms Corp, who also made the LC Smith Shotguns. I've read that the if the bottom of the receiver has a removable trigger plate then it was made by Hunter and if it has no trigger plate then it was made by Stevens. Their value is likely some where around $450 for insurance purposes depending on condition and maker. I believe most of these guns predate WWII.
