Many years ago I found a Colt 45 In the Niobrara river. Recently I had colt research the gun. It was shipped in 1876 to
H&D Folsom Arms co In Ny. Does any one know how I can find access to their records on who was the original owner?
Harley: Folsom Arms was a well known gun dealer in the late 1800s and early 1900s in NY. They have been out of business since at least WW2 and maybe earlier. I don't know of any way to locate their original records. I think you are going to have a tough time finding anything further down the trail than Folsom, but good luck. Charlie
