  1. Hello all, been a while since I've been on. Sorry about that-life-you know how it is.

    So I recently acquired a Nitro Marvel 12 Guage Shotgun and I'm trying to find out some more information about it.

    This is a picture of the same shotgun.

    I'd like to know the company who made it-I was told it's Stevens and Tool Company but they weren't sure.

    I also heard from someone who is a big gun owner the weapon is only worth about $40-$80. It requires custom loads because it can't handle the standard load that shells have these days. The gentleman said a standard load could blow the weapon up. I'd like to affirm whether or not this is true, Thanks guys-I really appreciate any and all information you can give.
