Can you fire new ammo with an old J Stevens shotgun?

I'm not going to tell you to go out and shoot it, but in general, these are fairly well-made guns and if they have been given reasonable care are still safe to use. You should have an experienced gunsmith inspect any old gun before you use it. Even if the 'smith gives it his blessing, I wouldn't use any magnum loads or steel shot.
