My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.

I'm getting out my Iver Johnson references - back shortly.

Expert:  Philip Van Cleave replied 1 year ago.

I need to identify the exact model.

1. Do you see any other markings on that gun?

2. What gauge is it?

3. How long is the barrel?

4. Is there a rib on the top of the barrel or is the barrel just round?
