Since there are no IJ collectors bidding these up unless in like-new original condition, it is worth from 1/2 to 2/3 the price of a new single shot or about $45-$60. Or even less if it is rusted or broken. But then, if you can add a few dollars worth of electrical parts to a rusty one, these are offered as floor lamps for $300 or more.
A barrel with a full choke.
how old is my Iver Johnson single barrel shotgun champion model 3578 C with a 12 gauge choke bore barrel and lug forged in one and approximate value .
The value of a 1905 model D single barrel choke bored Diamond Arms shotgun is actually dependent upon a number of things. Most importantly the condition of the shotgun.
A shotgun barrel with a cylinder bore choke.
If you mean a choke bored barrel, it designates the amount of constriction a shotgun barrel has.
They came in various barrel lengths and choke combinations. If it is not marked on the side of the barrel, you will have to pattern the shotgun to determine the choke
Yes, I have a 12 gauge choke bore barrel & lug forged in one by Iver Johnsons Arms & Cycle Works. Champion is clearly listed on the shotgun and it was manufactured in Fitchburg, MASS USA.
My great-grandmother gave me her's and she purchased her's in 1949.
A little bit more than a 17 gauge but less than 19 guage.
The Choke of a shotgun is the amount of barrel restriction at the muzzle end which affects the shot pattern. A full choke will keep the spray pattern of the pellets closer together farther out than if the barrel was not restricted at the muzzle. If there is no restriction at the muzzle, the choke is said to be cylinder choke or cylinder bore.
They probably denote what choke the barrel has.
It is possible to fire a shotgun without a choke, but it is highly not reccomended, and they don't cost that much If you select a barrel with no choke (cylinder) it will cause the pattern to be looser than for a barrel of a shotgun that has a tighter choke. The extreme is "full choke" which keeps a tight pattern out to the effective range. Full choke is typically used for waterfowl. A shotgun that is pressed into double duty (shot for small game and slugs for big game) would work well to have modified choke. Slugs have to be designed to fire through a full choke without blowing the barrel but you will certainly shorten the life of the barrel by firing slugs through a choked barrel. If you can afford an extra barrel, then use a cylinder (no choke) for slugs. Remington and other shotgun manufacturers have interchangeable choke tubes (see link) that allow you to screw in the appropriate choke for your quarry.
choke of sears model 20 12 gage plain barrel shotgun has 3 stars on barrel
No. A choke tube slips into and screws to the muzzle end of the barrel. It can only decrease the inside diameter.
Either a full choke,or extra full choke shotgun barrel.
A choke is a device placed on the end of a shotgun barrel that changes the pattern of the shot as it leaves the rifle.
the barrel is constricted at the end to make the pattern of shot flow density wider or tighter. Usually from cylinder up to full choke
Not sure but I have #9972
Tubes that constrict the column of shotgun pellets as they exit the barrel
It is called "choke". lcj
Go here for a good explanation - http://hunting.about.com/od/shotgun/l/aastshotgunfaqa.htm
The choke is a way of narrowing the barrel. It is designed to keep the shot in a tighter pattern. A full choke is supposed to increase the effective range of the weapon.
