    (This is a double Barrel Twelve gauge)

    bottom stamp 22 circled
    under forearm D J (Something that appears to be a P and possibley a 7)

    I figure this gun is of little value but thought I should check first. Thanks Dave

    Any markings on the barrels themselves? Also, on the frame you should find a small circle containing a letter and a number...

    The barrels have "selected forged steel" on one the other "proof tested 12 gauge" The 22 circled is all I see on the frame. that is all I find. The handguard comes off like my citori and the gun comes apart in the same manner. I guess I should ask if I should be shooting this gun. I fired a couple light trap loads out of it and it shot. both triggers work. Somebody did a bad job refinishing the stock. thanks again for your time.

    As long as it is mechanically sound, you should not have any problems with shooting it.

    Value around $200, another $50 if you finish the stock correctly.

    Wow! I gave forty bucks at a garage sale. I'm glad I ask. Thanks again for your time as I'm sure you are busy also.
