No one can answer that without examining the gun. Armory steel would have been almost certainly intended for smokeless powder, but what has happened to the gun in the last 80-100 years could make it unsafe now. Also, depending on just how old it is, the chambers may be only 2 1/2". Have a competent gunsmith check it out.
Get your brother in law to shoot it for you.
yes your Stevens shotgun should be safe to shoot,I'm not saying run nitro mags in it but it should function fine with high brass game loads.....they are a well built shotgun designed by John Browning..if your ever looking to sell it i'd be interested..........firstname.lastname@example.org
Your best bet would be to take it to a gunsmith for a professional appraisal.
Made sometime in the last half of the 19th century. Probably not safe to shoot.
Have it examined by a gunsmith.
In a word, no. In two words, absolutely not. www.countrygunsmith.net
So, the answer is you to stupid cause is crazy
The barrel should be stamped with the applicable shells that can be shot through the gun. i.e.-( chambered for 2 3/4" and 3" loads)
if it's an "ithaca mag-10", it was introduced in 1977 and discontinued in 1986, the answer to your question is yes it is safe to shoot steel loads, however you may want to have the choke measured at the muzzle by you local gunsmith.too much constriction could result in a barrel ring and a more open choke should give you a better pattern with larger sizes of steel shot i.e. t and bbb. pbl
DON'T DO THIS UNLESS THE MAKER SAYS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
safer to take it to a gunsmith. parts may be missing or gun may not be safe to shoot.
Hang it on a wall. Not worth more that 100 USD and not safe to fire with modern loads.
Yes. Slugs can be fired in any modern shotgun. It is best to use an improved cylinder barrel. Modified and full chokes are usually not as accurate, and too many slugs can cause them to pattern poorly with shot loads, although it is perfectly safe to use them.
12 gauge double barrel dual hammers on top serial #370943,how old is it,will it be safe to shoot
I would advis you to have a competent gunsmith look your shotgun over first to see if it will fire safely.He can also advise you as to the length of chamber you have.I would only shoot the low brass shells in this shotgun.
It may have laminated barrels or short chambers which would not be safe with any but the lightest loads equivalent to shells that were available 75-100 years ago. Have it examined by an experienced gunsmith and follow his advice.
actually no shotgun is good for a beginner. the shotgun has loads of power in it and would scare the living hell out of anyone who hasn't even used a handgun. buy a small gun first and start to get used to the sound and power because a shotgun is 10x that. take my advice and after you think your ready go out and see whatever shotgun u like the most have fun and be safe. peace out.
When in doubt have a qualified gunsmith examine your Marlin model 21 shotgun.It is far cheaper to have it examined,then to loose your eye sight or worse.
It CAN be, but would have it checked by a competent pistol smith first.
