I have an Iver Johnson, 16 gauge, singel barreled, exposed hammer, shotgun. The initial R. F. R. are behind the trigger guard, behind the butt plate and on the butt. I believe it to be around 70 years old.

Can someone "shoot" some info my way?

Hello gandalf: Well on the side of the receiver does it say "Champion" ? They started making the champion, in 1909, and continued up into the late 50's, I believe. Typical barrel lengths, 26,28,30,and 32 inches. Most are plain barrels but a "Solid rib" was an option. there is an Iver Johnson web site if I recall correctly do a google serch. You might be able to date the gun from the serial number.

Regards dave
