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.

Close the shotgun action and insert a rod down the barrel to the standing breech (to the rear edge of the chamber or where the back of the shotgun shell would be). Mark the end of the rod protruding from the barrel. Remove the rod and measure its length. Per federal law (GCA 1934), this must be a minimum of 18"

ANY shotgun... the chamber length should be marked on the barrel. For instance, 2, 2 3/4 or 3, or 31/2 and etc. If it is not marked, you can insert a ruler into the chamber end and, if you allow the ruler to slide along the chamber wall, you can feel the throat of the chamber. The designated length of the chamber, before the throat, will be approximately 1/4 inch longer than an unfired shell. It will be marked on the side of the barrel near the rear.
It is a Stevens 311
Generally it is stamped on the side or top of the barrel near the receiver.

Slide the Top Lever to the right to open the chamber. Turn the shotgun upside down. Look at the end of the barrel between the receiver and barrel. Get a flashlight and you'll see a series of numbers stamped in the bottom of the barrel.
