I have 3 shotguns

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

I have 3 shotguns, one is an Iver Johnson 410 , i think the serial number is5337XI, the second is a winchester model12-20 Guage 2 3/4 Full chose with a poly choke, there are lots of dates on the barrel starting in 1896 and the mist recent date is July 22, 1913 if that means anything and the third gun is a LC Smith Stub twist, Im told that its known as a Damascus twist style barrel.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Gunsmith should be aware of?

I don't think so.

Hi, my name is Jon. I am a firearms expert here at Just Answer. I will do my best to help you today. I have a few questions that will help me identify exactly what you have.

1. Is the Iver Johnson a single shot?

2. Can you please tell me the serial number of the Winchester Model 12?

3. Does the Winchester model 12 have a barrel rib on the top of the barrel? If so is it solid of vented?

4. Can you tell me if the L.C. Smith has any engraving and what gauge it is?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Jon

1. single shot. 2. 597249. 3.Yes, the rib is solid. 4. No engraving on the metal parts of the gun, but some detail work on the stock. 12 gauge and I thought I'd include what I think is the serial number-11473 which is found on the metal that wraps around the two triggers.
