The hammer will be in the cocked position. Nothing will happen until you pull the trigger.
The Model 1894 Remington was a side-by-side shotgun. The Model 1893 was a single-barrel shotgun with a side hammer. The 1893 in excellent original condition can bring $300.
The trigger on a cannon breach shotgun works by releasing the hammer when the shooter is ready to fire. This strikes a firing pin when in turn ignites the gun power in the shell casing.
Depends on what your shotgun is. If you have one of the older hammered shotguns (exposed hammer), you can decock them the same way you would any other firearm with an exposed hammer - you gently lower the hammer with your thumb. If you have a shotgun which doesn't have an exposed hammer, your only feasible way of going about this is to empty the magazine, be especially certain to ensure that the chamber is empty, and pull the trigger.
Try gun shows, libraries.
a good gun smith can fit screws to the gun. Finding the original screws will be almost impossible.
SINGLE? external hammer? The other is not missing? If this is a double it could be one of several models sometimes determined by the serial no because of quantity made but otherwise a good description is needed. Remington did not make a single external hammer shotgun. If you think this is incorrect send me mail/picture hit the service desk at the Remington Society of America and mail comes to me. http://remingtonsociety.com

DAO = Double Action Only. Pulling the trigger cocks the hammer (striker) until the trigger breaks and the hammer (or striker) hits the firing pin. A striker is like an internal hammer.
I have two 1878 Jas Parker & Sons double barrel shotguns.
It has a visible hammer (or two).
Early revolvers were single action- you had to cock the hammer manually, then pull the trigger. An example would be the Colt Peacemaker. A double action revolver (such as a S&W 357 magnum- Mdl 66) can be fired by pulling the trigger. Trigger pull, by itself, will cause the hammer to rise and fall. OR- the hammer may be cocked, and then the trigger pulled. A "DAO" or double action only, the hammer cannot be cocked, and the gun must be fired by pulling the trigger.
I would have to do some searching to verify this, but I don't believe Stevens ever made a shotgun using percussion caps.

The hammer is the part that hits the firing pin when you pull the trigger.. this is just an educated guess...

One shot for each pull of the trigger. The trigger does not cock the hammer.
If your pump 12 ga. has an exposed hammer, it's most likely a model 1898, as all later models of exposed hammer Marlin shotguns had the model marked on the upper tang behind the trigger. If it is not an exposed hammer, then the model designation is on the bottom, where the receiver meets the mag tube.
