There is no "break in" shotgun. A "break open" shotgun is a single barrel, double barrel, or combination rifle/shotgun which breaks open in the sense that a lever will unlock the action, allowing the barrel to pivot at a hinge at the front of the receiver, pivoting the rear of the barrel up to expose the chamber. A shells may be loaded into the chamber and the barrel pivoted back to close the action.

The act to "break in" a shotgun means to fire it a few times to loosen it up.

No. It is not designed to look like a shotgun, nor does it have any resemblance to one. The Barrel Break IX-2 was designed to look like a shotgun, so that would be the closest thing to one.

You did not tell us what MAKE your shotgun is. The two 1895s that come to mind are a lever action Winchester RIFLE, and a Davenport shotgun, which had a prominent release lever right behind the hammer.

It is a single barrel, break-away 12 gauge shotgun.

Over/unders are tight to begin with if made correctly. It will get eaiser as you use it.

If you do not have a manual, you need to visit a gunsmith.

Assuming you mean a top break shotgun, there were several models, prices will vary. For a single barreled top break, about $70-$75
