Howdy from beautiful Arizona!

I my wife's grandfather Willed to me his New Era Gun Works Nitro Hammerless shotgun. I read your forums and was able to locate the following Serial #. That number is 53983.
So the obvious two questions that every gun guy wants to know. (A) What Gauge is it & can regular shotgun shells be used. Your Forum indicates Black Powder only.

(B) Is it worth anything?

Thank you!


One last thing that may help. It is a side by side. It has one I would consider a small porcelain bead at the end of the barrel for sighting

Maybe I’ll be surprised but I’m trying to figure out how anyone would be able to tell you what gauge a shotgun is by a serial number. Good clear pics of the entire shotgun and any markings would be a huge help.

Since this is his first post, I suspect he is not a shooter.
