Hello,
I have a champion iver johnson 12 gauge single shot shotgun with a serial number with 25584 stamped on the lug and on the barrel side of the metal plate on the forestock, and TGIF stamped behind the trigger guard. It has a crosshatch pattern on the barrel release. It has a 26" barrel. Im really wanting to know the history behind it if avaible the value of it. I'm 19 and I got this from my great grand-father.

Ask in the "Shotgun Id and Value" forum. There are people there who can answer.

If you got this from your great-grandfather, then it is priceless because of the stories that go along with it. It's not a shooter and is not rare, but should be hung on the wall with respect.

Helpful suggestion? This gun is not worth money. It is worth more than that. Get your GGF to tell you the stories that go along with the gun. Those are worth more than the gun.

My personally addressed autographed Mickey Mantle picture taught me that.

It doesn't have much monetary value and is most valuable to you or your family members.
