Best Answer

Newport was a Brand Name used by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co, Chicago (1882-1962) on shotguns made by Crescent Firearms (1983-1930) and J. Stevens Arms (1930-1948). If it is a singleshot, it may have been made by Iver Johnson. Perhaps the Chicago Library has some old advertising from HSB&Co that would identify a model "W", but very little detail published about these old hardware store guns.
