I have actually been provided an old IJ shotgun, single 12 ga. Has actually 2 patent numbers on barrel through champion in the middle. I was told very first champion to be made in 1909. But I can uncover no information on a serial number. Over there is no number on the stocks on receiver tangs, trigger etc. It"s a side step and only number I found are as listed. Top top the latching flavor on bottom the barrel it appears to speak 1889. It has actually been welded, repaired here so not sure of last 2 numbers.Only other numbers are on the forearm lock Tang. On one side it has actually a 3 and also on various other side has 968.Nothing else anywhere 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 have to be 2 1/2 inch black powder. Many thanks

Jmustiansr: You have been misinformed. The Champion surname was very first used through Johnson & Bye, a partnership of Iver Johnson and Martin taking leave in the period 1880-1882 as soon as the partnership ended and the agency became Iver Johnson and also Company. The firm became Iver Johnson Arms and also Cycle functions in 1894.

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

There was likewise a Champion optimal Snap and also Champion next Snap Hammerless do in the 1880-1900 period.

This shotgun to be chambered for black Powder shells and also due to the Twist steel barrel and also the welding on the broken lug, is not safe to use with any kind of ammunition.

The patent date is the concern date because that patent number 230,409 issued July 27, 1880 to C.H. Eutebrouk for a solitary barrel/center an installed hammer.

For what it is worth, Iver Johnson supplied a solitary letter suffix on serial number in the duration 1917-1921, a 2 letter suffix 1921-1939 and serial number with just letters 1939-1957.

That"s wild haha. No wonder i was having actually trouble identify it. I"ll look at real difficult again at the patents and also make sure. They, choose the word Champion appear very worn.The barrel additionally does not have actually the appearance of being twisted steel. I believed twisted would display signs like tiny ribs as I"ve viewed on some other guns. This barrel is nice smooth.
