What is the oldest long tom shot gun?
The term "Long Tom" was used to denote a muzzle loading cannon that had a barrel much longer than standard. While slower to load, it had greater range. Over the years it has been applied to guns with a longer than usual barrel, notably shotguns. It is a name used by several makers- the earliest that I have found is between the late 1890's and early 1900s, but they were made up into the 1920s. "Long Tom" was an unofficial name for a muzzle loading cannon with a much longer than usual barrel- slower to load, greater range. The name was borrowed by shotgun makers around 1900 to denote a shotgun (usually a single shot) with a longer than usual barrel. Not a brand name, but a model name.
