Shotgun ammunition is measured by gauge (or bore in England), not caliber. In addition to the gauge, you will need to know the correct shell length and an old damascus barreled gun probably uses 2 1/2 inch shells which are no longer available. To determine the correct ammunition, you will have to have the chambers measured by a gunsmith. He probably won't even charge you for this simple service. Most likely, an old American Arms shotgun will be a 12 gauge. If a dime fits the muzzle, it's a 12 gauge modified choke, if it fits loosely, it's 12 gauge open choke, and if it will almost go in, it's 12 gauge full choke. You'll probably find that one barrel is full and the other modified. Even if you determine the correct ammunition for this gun, don't shoot it. Although damascus barrels were excellent for the proper ammunition when new they are subject to deterioration over time (and your gun is probably nearly if not over 100 years old) if they have not had proper care for their entire lifetime.
The first ones had six barrels that used .58-caliber ammunition.
Shotguns are described by gauge, not caliber. It should be marked on the barrels as to which is the correct ammuntion and gauge. Shotguns are described by gauge, not caliber. It should be marked on the barrels as to which is the correct ammuntion and gauge.
There are no 69 caliber guns. There are over sized barrels, but they all use .685 standard paintballs.
Beyer Barrels, Tactical Solutions, Majestic Arms, and too many others to list.
No, they do not have interchangeable barrels to change caliber
A "store brand" or "trade name" made by the Crescent Arms Co. of Norwich Conn. for the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, MO. Crescent started about 1892. They offered inexpensive single and double barrels in 12, 16, 20, 28 and 44XL shot caliber. Barrels were either Damascus Twist laminated or Armory Steel Barrels. They do not have much value and are best relegated to "wall hanger" status unless checked out by a competent gunsmith. Prices range from 100-400.
You need the services of a professional firearms appraiser
It had two different caliber barrels on the same frame.
it depends on the manufacturer and the condition of the gun. it helps to know the caliber of all three barrels. usually you have two shotgun barrels and the third is a rifle.
I have a couple with several barrels. The prices I have seen recently range between about 700 and 1500. Extra barrels are 180 to 250 depending on the caliber.
If you are asking about a Smith and Weson handgun in .40s&w caliber,then no these firearms do not have a damascus,or twist steel barrel.This type of barrel was only found on shotguns made from the time period of 1880-1910.
If you mean a mini-gun, it depends on the number of barrels, caliber, and whether it has the capability to fire at different rpms.
Barrels have lands and grooves, not ammunition.
Caliber should be on the barrel. SN's were not required until 1968
North American Arms
Gatling gun rates of fire depend on caliber, number of barrels and whether electric or hand powered.
What condition is it in, That determines the value. BTW they all had Brass Barrels.

Other firearms such as shotguns (which do not have rifled barrels) and handguns (revovlers) are not listed.
With the exception of guns like the Thompson/Center, a single shot weapon that changes barrels, there are few .22 pistols that can EASILY converted to a larger caliber. The .22 is a rimfire, and firing pin is in the wrong place for a centerfire cartridge.
The guide I use states it came in .22 or .32. If it had a 16" barrel, it was a .22, but longer barrels could have been either.
very slightly largery then .685 caliber, but high end barrels can be ordered to a specific smaller or larger diameter, usually from .67 to .69.
A large revolver
No, the largest caliber for infantry rifles is .50 caliber (12.7x.99mm in NATO). Besides a .54 caliber gun is WAYYY to big to have a person fire with todays advances in gun-powder and weaponry. However the M1A1 Abrams battle tank has a 120mm SMOOTHBORE cannon. Also, the A-10 Warthog has a 30mm minigun in it's nose.
