Iverson Johnson Shotgun safety question
I have come into possession of an Iverson Johnson "Champion" 12 gauge shotgun, which from what I have read online was manufactured sometime after 1909.. in Fitchburg MA or some place like that
It says something like "Pats. pending 1901 , 1902" on it.. and it does not say 12 gauge anywhere but it measures across as one and I have a couple 12 gauge shells that fit fine in it
My question is, are these modern day shells safe to fire in this old shotgun? and if not, what ammo do i need to get for it?
The gun doesnt even work (firing pin and hammer etc broken ..for now) but when I get it restored I want to be able to shoot it a few times
Any help is appreciated.
