How can I tell if my 16ga shotgun is built on a dedicated 16ga frame or adapted to a 12ga frame? Is there a dimension to check, like measuring length-of-pull?

Perhaps the distance between firing pin holes? If so, what would be the correct distances for each gauge?

Per "Game Gun" by Richard Grozik

Distance between the firing pin holes:

12 Gauge 1 1/10 - 1 1/8 inch
16 Gauge 1 1/16 inch
20 Gauge 1 inch
28 Gauge 15/16 inch
.410 7/8 inch

Great question & answer.....Maybe this thread could be moved to the Shotgun FAQ's & How To's forum.
