I have actually been given an old IJ shotgun, solitary 12 ga. Has actually 2 patent numbers on barrel v champion in the middle. Ns was told very first champion was made in 1909. However I can discover no info on a serial number. There is no number on the stocks on recipient tangs, cause etc. It"s a side step and only numbers I uncovered are as listed. Top top the latching tang on bottom the barrel it appears to speak 1889. It has actually been welded, repaired here so not certain of last 2 numbers.Only various other numbers are on the forearm lock Tang. Top top one side it has a 3 and on other side has actually 968.Nothing else everywhere on gun. I understood serial number would most likely be letters. Make the efforts to determine original ammo used. 2 3/4 shells to the right fine however I"m thinking should be 2 1/2 inch black color powder. Thanks

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

You have a Champion side Snap Hammer shotgun v an imported Twist steel barrel made in the duration 1880-1900.

There was likewise a Champion height Snap and Champion next Snap Hammerless make in the 1880-1900 period.

This shotgun was chambered for black color Powder shells and also due come the Twist steel barrel and the welding ~ above the damaged lug, is not safe to usage with any ammunition.

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

For what that is worth, Iver Johnson provided a solitary letter suffix on serial numbers in the period 1917-1921, a two letter suffix 1921-1939 and serial numbers with only letters 1939-1957.

That"s wild haha. No wonder i was having actually trouble identify it. I"ll look real difficult again at the patents and make sure. They, prefer the indigenous Champion appear an extremely worn.The barrel additionally does not have the illustration of gift twisted steel. I believed twisted would present signs like tiny ribs together I"ve watched on some other guns. This barrel is nice smooth.
