Inherited grandfather"s Champion Iver Johnson ? functions 12 Gage full choke barrel and also lug forged in one serial number CCRI. Would like to know manufacturing year


I have been offered an old IJ shotgun, solitary 12 ga. Has 2 patent number on barrel v champion in the middle. I was told first champion to be made in 1909. However I can discover no details on a serial number. There is no number on the share on recipient tangs, trigger etc. It"s a next step and also only numbers I found are as listed. Top top the latching flavor on bottom that barrel it shows up to say 1889. It has been welded, repaired right here so not sure of critical 2 numbers.Only other numbers are on the forearm lock Tang. On one side it has a 3 and also on various other side has 968.Nothing else almost everywhere on gun. I construed serial number would most likely be letters. Do the efforts to determine original ammo used. 2 3/4 shells to the right fine yet I"m thinking should be 2 1/2 inch black powder. Many thanks

Jmustiansr: You have been misinformed. The Champion name was first 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 agency became Iver Johnson and Company. The company became Iver Johnson Arms and also Cycle functions in 1894.

You have a Champion next Snap Hammer shotgun through an imported Twist stole barrel do in the period 1880-1900.

There was also a Champion top 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 stole barrel and the welding ~ above the broken lug, is not safe to use with any ammunition.

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

For what the is worth, Iver Johnson offered a single letter suffix ~ above serial numbers in the duration 1917-1921, a two letter suffix 1921-1939 and also serial numbers with only letters 1939-1957.

That"s wild haha. No wonder i was having trouble identifying it. I"ll watch real tough again in ~ the patents and also make sure. They, like the native Champion appear really worn.The barrel additionally does not have the appearance of being twisted steel. I assumed twisted would show signs like little ribs as I"ve watched on some various other guns. This barrel is quite smooth.
