Posted this in Team a couple days ago, didn't get an answer so I figured I'd try here.

A friend has a H&R 12 gauge folder. Has U.S. Property stamped on the left side of the stock. I tried searching the net, but can not find anything on it at all.
any info out there?

I have one like it. My grandfather bought it for my aunt when she was 16. That was 1937 and I still have the box, cleaning kit & orginal receipt from Montgomery Wards. As I recall it sold new for about $12.

In Bruce Canfield's History of US combat shotguns, there is a pic from very early/ possibly pre-WWII of a National Guardsman armed with one of these. During the build-up of WWII the .mil bought a lot of different guns.

Look up the history on the Remington Model 720 rifle and Model 11 shotgun for example
