    I have an old double barrel shotgun with hidden hammers.

    I believe it is a 12ga. The barrels are dime sized. There are no markings other than "Essex Gun Works" and a s/n "S16412" stamped inside on the barrel tang.

    I would like to know the year of manufacture and if is usable with modern powder.


    I'll put up photos when I get them.
