I have been offered an old IJ shotgun, solitary 12 ga. Has 2 patent numbers on barrel through champion in the middle. I was told very first champion was made in 1909. Yet I can find no details on a serial number. There is no number on the stocks on recipient tangs, create etc. It"s a side step and only numbers I uncovered are together listed. Top top the latching flavor on bottom that barrel it shows up to to speak 1889. It has actually been welded, repaired here so not certain of last 2 numbers.Only various other numbers space on the forearm lock Tang. Top top one side it has actually a 3 and also on various other side has 968.Nothing else everywhere on gun. I understood serial number would most likely be letters. Do the efforts to identify original ammo used. 2 3/4 shells to the right fine however I"m thinking need to be 2 1/2 inch black powder. Thanks

Jmustiansr: You have actually been misinformed. The Champion surname was an initial used by Johnson & Bye, a partnership of Iver Johnson and Martin bye in the duration 1880-1882 once the cooperation ended and also the agency became Iver Johnson and also Company. The company became Iver Johnson Arms and also Cycle functions in 1894.

You have a Champion next Snap Hammer shotgun with an imported Twist steel barrel made in the period 1880-1900.

There was additionally a Champion optimal Snap and Champion side Snap Hammerless make in the 1880-1900 period.

This shotgun to be chambered for black Powder shells and due to the Twist stole barrel and the welding ~ above the broken lug, is no safe to usage with any kind of ammunition.

The patent day is the issue date because that patent number 230,409 authorize July 27, 1880 come C.H. Eutebrouk because that a single barrel/center mounted hammer.

For what that is worth, Iver Johnson offered a single letter suffix on serial number in the period 1917-1921, a two letter suffix 1921-1939 and also serial number with only letters 1939-1957.

That"s wild haha. No wonder i was having actually trouble identify it. I"ll look at real difficult again in ~ the patents and also make sure. They, like the indigenous Champion appear an extremely worn.The barrel additionally does not have actually the illustration of being twisted steel. I thought twisted would show signs like small ribs together I"ve checked out on some various other guns. This barrel is pretty smooth.
