    Davenport Firearms Company of Providence, Rhode Island & Norwich, Connecticut, Circa 1880-1900. The founder, William H. Davenport, held a great many patents on breech-loading firearms. The company apparently devoted its energies almost exclusively to single barrel shotguns of very inexpensive grades, making them under both house and brand names.
    Here is some more detailed information on the Davenport Firearms Co.:
