That's a pretty tall order. Do you have a specific question? The bore diameter of a 28 gauge is .550 inches. A 2 3/4 inch 28 gauge is equivalent to a 3 inch 410. It is not really a popular hunting gun, but is used by many skeet shooters.

If I had to guess, I'd say 12 gauge since that would be the most common. But it could be 16, 20, or .410. It is possible, but not likely, that it is 10, 24, or 28 gauge. Anyone familiar with shotguns should be able to tell you just by looking, but you can also measure the diameter of the barrel. The diameter of a 12 gauge barrel should be approximately .729 inches, a 16 gauge .663, a 20 gauge .615, and a 410 is measured as a caliber .410 inches. The diameter at the breech will be a bit higher than these measurements and at the muzzle it will be a bit smaller.
