AMERICAN ARMS CO.
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
History of American Arms is rather sketchy. It appears the company was formed in 1853 as G. H. Fox Co., then became American Tool & Machine Co. in 1865. In 1870, they formed a new corporation called American Arms Company, with George Fox as principle stockholder. This corporation was dissolved in 1873; a second American Arms Co. was incorporated in 1877 and a third in 1890. It is unclear if these corporations had essentially the same owners, but George H. Fox appears as a principle owner in two of the three. One could assume that financial problems forced them to bankrupt one corporation and reorganize under another. American Arms manufactured firearms in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1866 until 1893. In 1893 they moved to Bluffton, Alabama and manufactured guns until 1901.
