BRANDY - Your shotgun was probably manufactured between 1886 and 1916.

The SxS has been around a long time. With the info given your gun may have been built in 1750 or it may be a new import from 2008. They have never stopped makeing this type of gun.

manufacturing turned toward internal hammers about 1870 just about the same time the transition from twist to fluid steel barrels appeared. keep in mind that side hammers still appeared on center fire shotguns using brass cased shotgun shells that first appeared about 1860. if it is a percussion cap shotgun its probably pre 1860.

94 years old, +/- 20. If twist steel barrels and side hammers, more likely (but not absolutely) prior to WWI. If fluid steel and a boxlock (back hammers or hammerless) ALMOST certainly after c. 1905.

You have to be 18 years old, to legally own a shotgun.

$150 to $250, depending on how good it looks over the fireplace since this old timer probably isn't suitable for a field gun anymore.

In England you must be at least 14 years old to obtain a Firearms Certificate which allows you to own a shotgun. A shotgun can be obtained under the age of 14 with a Shotgun Certificate signed by a parent.
